Seiko Kinetic Capacitor Replacement Service In The UK


Seiko Capacitor Replacement Service:

£39 + £7.25 Return Postage

I now offer a “one click” Seiko Capacitor Replacement Service for Seiko Kinetic Watches in the UK.

(I use the term “capacitor” as it is the term commonly used, but the latest generation of capacitors are actually rechargeable batteries).

This applies to Seiko Kinetic watches which:

  •       Do not hold charge
  •       Show the 2 second tick

This service is not appropriate for watches which do not run at all.

The service includes replacement of the old capacitor with the latest genuine Seiko replacement. (‘latest’ as some of the older capacitors are now replaced by a cell with different chemical composition to provide better performance.)

I can replace capacitors on all common Seiko models, see detailed list below. Please do not hesitate to contact me if in doubt.

Why buy the service from O.N. Atelier:

  • The service will be carried out by a trained professional.
  • The watch case will be opened with the correct tools without leaving any marks.
  • The watch will be correctly resealed (a new caseback gasket will be fitted, and lubricated with the correct grease).
  • The capacitor will be fully charged with a Kinetic charger (as you probably know Seiko kinetic watches need a long time on the wrist to get to full charge)
  • 1 week turnaround guaranteed: the watch will be posted back to you within one week of receipt.

How it works:

  •          You click on the “Buy Now” button above.
  •          I will email you the address to send your watch to ( my email will be sent to the address you used to make the Paypal payment)
  •          You can then post your watch to that address. I recommend using Royal Mail Special Delivery, as it is extremely reliable, fully tracked, and will cover as standard up to £500 in compensation in the unlikely event of an issue. Please make sure you keep the tracking details.
  •          I will confirm receipt of your watch and proceed with the work.
  •          I will return your watch using Royal Mail Special Delivery, confirm dispatch with a message and provide tracking details.
