Last night, when I was brushing my teeth with my sonicare tootbrush, I thought of using the charger to charge my watch. I said, what the heck, my watch is 7 years old anyway and I put the watch on top of the toothbrush charger. I left it overnight and lo and behold this morning , it was at full charge. The only thing I noticed is that the watch is a bit warm and I thought it might have been overcharged. Up to now, the watch is in full charge. It would have been better if I had monitored the charging until it was full charge or used a timer to avoid overcharging.

  1. Will any toothbrush charger work or does it hav e to be a Sonicare?

    Did you put the watch face down or face up?

    Did you position the watch body over the opening?



  2. I side with Mr. Jones on the watch charging. I bought a sonicare toothbrush and managed to charge my seiko kinetic watch only once. I did not make specific notes about exactly how my watch was placed on the sonicare toothbrush charger, and now it is stillan experiment. I have moved the watch at least 3 times to different positions and gotten no charge. I need to see an illustration or picture of how the watch must be placed on the charger. HELP!!!

  3. I had an insight from this site and tried with my oral-B toothbrush charger for my Seiko kinetic watch with 5M43movement. It was a real fun to find out how quickly it can charge uptothe maximum level (indicating 30secs). I searched on the internet where the inducing coil exists for my watch and I found it sits on 10’oclock to 8o’clock position.
    Just put the watch parallel to the coil post in the middle of the Oral-B charger unit as close as possible to that inducing coil inside the watch.

  4. John, can you post a picture on how you place the Seiko Kinetic on that toothbrush charger? Thanks.

  5. I’m going to try my wife’s Philips SonicCare on my Seiko Kinetics, any advice on watch placement and do you have an update on the amt of time to leave it charging for? most of my watches are near dead charge, Thanks!
