    Seiko Kinetic Ti SQ100, could anyone tell me about it?

    Picked up this for $30-ish, but I know next to nothing about it apart from what I can estimate from the serial. If anyone knows something and could share I'd appreciate it, thanks :)

    Probably slightly cost prohibitive since I need to get a new capacitor/battery, but I always wanted a Ti so I figured why not.

    The light in the photo makes it look way rougher than it is.

    Nice watch.

    I would not call a Kinetic to be cost prohibitive due to a wonky capacitor. I paid $19 shipped for one and $30 and 15 min later, my watchmaker had switched it out and it was good as new.

    Yours should be easy to do also

    Thank you for your input, I found a capacitor so I'll be wearing this within a month or two since it's coming from the other side of the planet.

    Still pretty blank on the watch itself though.

    The SQ line was one of Seiko's sport watch line

    It was the successor to the Seiko Sports lineup of the 1980's and early 1990's. Back then there was the following Sports models:

    Sports 50m

    Sports 100m

    Sports 150m


    The SQ line (Seiko Quartz) replaced that so you have the

    SQ50
    SQ100
    SQ150


    The number is the water resistance (so on a SQ100 the water resistance is 100m)

    The SQ lineup got dumped a few years later along with the early Kinetic logo (looks like a top spinning)

    Final update, put in an ebay capacitor/battery myself and it runs great; just need a quick clean and it should be good for years
