.. and no, I don't speak Japanese, before anyone asks.

Intriguingly someone had some success charging with a Braun toothbrush charger. Also the charger itself is an inductive loop that, according to the manual operates at approximately 1kHz, so if your electronic foo is up to it, you might try messing about with those two ideas, assuming the above links prove fruitless.

One other experiment I would be tempted to try, would be using one of those $2 cheap "Qi Wireless Charging Charger Dock Pad For iPhone X" gadgets you get on ebay. I have no idea if they would actually work, but for $2 it would be tempting to give it a try... assuming I had a suitable watch to experiment with, which I don't...

(Andy Hull goes off to lurk on ebay to see if he can find a suitable victim watch to play with). :geek:

.. and finally .. if you are really in the mood for experimentation (and possibly releasing much magic smoke on the way).. there is this...

OK probably only as a last resort. :D

.. but at least it is a little less crude than this... https://www.instructables.com/id/Very-Cheap-DIY-Kinetic-Watch-Winder/

I share your concerns about charging your kinetic watch.
If it wasn’t for the fact that I got a good price for my perpetual calendar watch I would have walked away from it.

You can wear yourself out shaking it out of the idle state and the hours and calendar don’t remember the date or time. Even with a new capacitor-battery.

I realize that this is an old thread but I've been on this same quest, just as fruitlessly. The Seiko YT02-a kinetic charger was discontinued and none remain in inventory anywhere that I can find. At a price of $399 USD, they can keep them anyhow. The Braun toothbrush charger works like a charm and at $7.95 including shipping, the price wasn't an issue. The inductive field is small though and to fully charge my  Seiko SUN055 took a bit over 18 hours. That's fine as I have other watches to wear.  I'm still searching for a better solution.

FYI, we have a dedicated section where it's considered polite for new members to introduce themselves first.
