Seiko Divers Power Reserve


Recommended Posts

Dear All

I have had a Seiko Divers 200m, SKX173 US Model, for 18 months. I cannot fault the watch but for one thing...

When I leave it for a day it stops! I don't have the same problem with any of my other autos, Omega, Tissot etc

I don't believe it to be a fault, but rather, a 'feature'...do I need to give it a good charge first, I always wind the others. Cannot be done on the 7S26 mvmt.

Any advise or guidance much appreciated.

Best Regards, Rex

When you say you leave it for a day is that after a night of not wearing. Not that it should make any difference. In normal day to day use a 7s26 should hold a charge resting at night and well into the next day although I have never actually tested the maximum power reserve. I will get one of my 5's out, (same movement) and put this to the test. Get back to you.

Try wearing it for the whole day. Then put it to rest overnight and see when it stops the following day.

I would have thought it should be ok till at least tea time.

Garry I have this huge Girrarducci/ Unitas manual wind that seems to go on for days from fully wound.
