Seiko Kinetic. Needed a new capacitor, new glass and the bezel loosening.

This Seiko Kinetic was bought in for various jobs.

Seiko Kinetic work on a capacitor. The rotor in watch charges the 'battery' or capacitor. These can last around 10 years before they loose their efficiency, and normally a new one will correct the issue of the second hand jumping every 2 seconds.

It also needed a new glass and the bezel loosening. The bezel can accumulate quite a lot of detritus over the years. This needs clearing up to improve efficiency.

The Seiko Kinetic 5M62 is a quartz watch that uses the motion of the wearer's arm to power a rechargeable battery, rather than relying solely on a replaceable battery like a typical quartz watch.

The watch is equipped with a rotor that rotates when the wearer moves their arm, which generates electricity and charges the watch's battery. This technology allows the watch to run continuously without the need for battery replacements.

The Seiko Kinetic 5M62 has a power reserve indicator that displays the amount of energy stored in the watch's battery. It also features a date display, a 24-hour hand, and a second hand.

The watch has a water resistance rating of 100 meters, making it suitable for swimming and snorkeling, but not diving. It also has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a stainless steel case and bracelet.

Overall, the Seiko Kinetic 5M62 is a reliable and innovative watch that offers the convenience of quartz accuracy with the sustainability of self-charging technology.
