This men’s Seiko has the kinetic movement so requires no battery changes. Model reference 5M62-0050.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in August 2003.
The kinetic motion of wearing the watch is what powers any automatic watch, via converting that movement into winding the spring. Seiko took this centuries old principle and used this kinetic energy and converted it to charge a capacitor, which then powers a quartz precision movement. All clever stuff, as this way you never need to replace any battery. About every ten years you might need to change the capacitor, but we will fit a new capacitor before sending this watch out to give you the maximum possible use of the watch without needing to take the back off. Capacitors take a few days to get to us, so please allow a few extra days for delivery.
The bracelet has those important extra links to allow it to fit most wrists, and we have cleaned the bracelet in our ultrasonic bath. This is a solid link bracelet, rather than the older Seiko folded link bracelets, so there are fewer places for dirt to hide. Both the bracelet and the case have surface scratches from use, but the glass has been replaced so that is scratch free. That is good as it shows off the deep blue dial nicely, along with the golden hands and hour markers. The hands still glow in low light, but not as brightly as they once did. The quick set date works perfectly.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, instruction book (but no warranty card) and our Certificate of Authenticity.
