Seiko Watches - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues


Unfortunately, the Seiko website does not have a serial number lookup, so you'll have to identify the model. The "8123-7190" is what Seiko calls the "caliber code." Entering that on the page linked below will narrow down the model number list for you. Clicking on the link for your model will give you the instructions in PDF format. The instructions for your model tell you what size battery to use. For example, the manual for the 8F32 states on page 11 that the battery size for that model is CR2412. (Note - be sure to get the correct instructions; different models have different battery sizes.) "Automatic" Divers watches have no battery, they are powered by a spring mechanism.

the make of the battery is of no importance
it is the size and voltage that counts
if the watch is water proof , you will need to have a jeweller or watch maker replace the battery as the case will be sealed

Wow, Seiko is a all-time favorite! Why not take it to a Seiko Repair Center and pay a few bucks to have one professionally installed?

Real shame if YOU installed a knock-off and it leaked on you!

The normal clock/alarm functions of the Seiko SQ767W work worldwide, but because the feature that automatically sets the time via radio signal only works in Japan, Seiko only provides the manual in Japanese.

Here's an English version I made with the help of onlinedoctranslator.com (uses Google Translate). I made a couple of adjustments but it's still pretty rough due to the machine translation.

Did you call Seiko? Normally they do not sell parts to non authorized service people. If you send them the watch and it is not obsolete they will change the circuit board for you...

Seiko Wrist 5... | Answered on Jan 06, 2018 | 45 views


I had a stunning Seiko, back in the '70's. Went into a pawn shop, silver and turquoise Navajo bracelet. Cost me $50. 2 yrs later, it screeched to a halt. Sent it back and sent $25. Two years later, it happened again. Ergo, I had to re-buy my Seiko every 4 years. So I replaced it with a $10 Timex, that is Still running. Love the set, now! That was then. It seems they Still want to do all the work.... I now have a favorite jeweller, the family has been in business since the ? - 1930's? I would find someone like the Butterfield Jewelers, call and ask if they can work on your watch. (these guys are Amazing! I take my solar watch to them just to re-set it!
