Hi just bought a Seiko kinetic diver off eBay and wondered if you could properly Id it photo isn't great as its the sellers one his other photo you could hardly tell it was even a watch

From a bit of digging I think its a SHF047P 5m23-6b50 but can't find much about them but is it what I think it is? Can't find any for sale either really

Seems I can't post a picture till I'm over 5 posts

Well the fact that it is powered by a 5M23 Kinetic movement means its a first generation Kinetic. Did it mention in the add if it worked? I personally like Kinetic powered watches. If the capacitor is in perfect working order they have a very long power reserve. More than any spring driven auto winder. They are not to bad to work on if the capacitor does not hold a full charge. You have a couple of choices. You can install a new capacitor for under 20 bucks. If the charging rotor or circuit is bad they can be converted to run off of a regular power cell to.
Getting parts for the case or dial could be very hard as this is an older model.

I love Seiko Sports models. All of them from the real early 6119 auto winders to some of the oddball stuff from the 80's powered by the 7123 5H23 5M23 Kinetic movements and even the higher end quartz movements like the 7546 and 7548 movements. I think Seiko has used just about every movement inside a model labeled Sports at one time or another. Clean it up so we can see what you have there.

Th button gives teh power reserve of the capacitor. Press it teh second hand moves. The more it moves the more power it has. The more power it has, the longer the watch will work.

Maybe worth doing some googling for instructions etc
