Seiko Kinetic service/repair.

Question

Hi,

I have a Seiko kinetic watch from the early 2000’s, like this one - https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/mens-seiko-kinetic-watch-steel-541566386

It’s in a pretty sorry state and I wondered if there were any suggestions for somebody who could service and repair it.

It was actually a 21st birthday gift from my then girlfriend, now wife so I’d love to get it up and running again.

Obviously it’s not worth much so wouldn’t want to spend a fortune resurrecting it but thought I’d ask.

Cheers,

Dan

Hi Dan. This is all brushed, so rebrushing the bracelet is easy, a 5 quid block of garryflex will do the job. New glass maybe 20 quid, new capacitor should be about 30.  A "service" on a seiko kinetic is very rarely necessary, new capacitor and a caseback seal is simple.   For £50 you'll have this back in belting condition. 

Drop me a PM if you cant get it done on the cheap, I used to do capacitors for forum members for 25 quid and return postage, the parts are less than 20 notes, no need to pay the earth.

Morning Dan.

Looks straight forward. I have a couple of kilos of spare seiko links, not sure if I have one for that exact watch but I've had both kinetic and chronograph models of that model, so theres a good chance!

Capacitor and glass I'll sort out for 50 quid including postage back to you, and if I have any links I'll chuck those in for nothing. 

Its an open offer. Have a think and if you fancy it I'll fire over my shop address and PayPal.

Would you do me a quick favour and give me the link measurements? Total diameter and the width of the gap please, I'll have a rummage this morning while I've not much on.

Cheers, kev.

Hi Kev,

 

That is fantastic! Providing something can be done with the bracelet, I’ll gladly send this up to you.

Re the measurements -

Lug width is 14 mm

Links are just under 20mm total width and 14mm gap. Thickness of links is 2.5mm.

Not sure if it came across in my earlier message but the bracelet as it stands is too small so would need extra links to give a longer bracelet or a complete replacement bracelet/strap.

Cheers,

Dan

Quick dig through my spare links for links with a wide centre, I haven't found that exact link, but I think I have a candidate (20mm wide, 14mm opening) from a different Kinetic.

Pics below

 

I'll PM you, if you want to send me the watch I'll try and get a link to fit and if not I'll just return it as it is.

Cheers. Kev
