I recently bought a near NOS Seiko Kinetic 5M62 from a forum fellow. When it arrived, it was ticking in 2 seconds intervals. So I swung it several times and after two minutes the interval was 1 sec. I now wear the watch for more than 48 hours, just setting it aside by night. Over night, the watch keeps going normally.
When I check the charge, the second hand always moves 5 secs. According to the power chart http://seiko-kinetic-watches.watch-u...powerchart.jpg I've got energy for 1 to 7 day.
How long does it take for charging up until the maximum ? Or should I place a new capacitor as this one might be too uncharged (previous owner did not use the watch very frequently).
