You have come to this page as you have a watch that does not have the classic symptoms of a faulty battery

Kinetic watches have all the same problems that you will find with a normal quartz watch and then some of their own. Since they are of moderate value and the movements are expensive they are worth repairing. Most of the time it is a problem with the charging system as this is under the most stress in normal use.
Tip: Remove the battery and refit the wheel and weight. Now move the weight back and forth with your finger. If the watch does not start up then You know there is a problem. I would start with the coil

Once you have exhausted these problems you need to start looking at the rest of the movement for the problem. I would trouble shoot this as part of a clean and service.
