    Any suggestions on where to send a Seiko solar watch who’s battery no longer recharges.

    A couple ideas come to mind. Back to where it was purchased or the Seiko service center. Go on line for the service center.

    They aren't that difficult to replace but the batteries are more expensive than normal quartz watch batteries. I just replaced one in my Citizen solar watch at a cost of $35 thru eBay.

    The little cells used in solar watches don't like been completely discharged and have been know to give up the ghost when this happens. Let the watch charge up for several days to be certain of it and if it's still in limp mode you look like investigating getting a replacement cell for it.

    Agreed!

    I had a Casio Solar that didn't get much natural light and it went completely dead several months ago so I put it on the window sill all day and nothing. I thought it was history. So I left it on the window sill and the next day all of a sudden it came to life and has worked perfect since.
