Seiko Independent Watch Repair Specialists
All older Seiko Kinetic watches
be cleaned due to the damage to the oils from the gassing off of the obsolete capacitor, as the gasses cannot escape out of the case.
All the Seiko Kinetic watches that we service are soaked for 12 hours to soften the oils and greases prior to being ultrasonically cleaned.
These new Cells do not gas off, so this will not happen in the future once the movement has been cleaned.
Seiko Kinetic watches can be dated by the first number of the serial number on the rear case at the bottom (i.e. 7xxxxx = 1997, 2007 or 2017)
