I picked up an NOS Seiko Kinetic, my first and only kinetic. If it's working properly, how long should it have to be 'moved' in order to gain a full charge?

I can’t quite read the movement calibre but it seems to be 5M42 which only had about 7 days power reserve and would take about 1400 swings of the rotor to fully charge it. Try it, but that old capacitor is possibly dead or close to it. It was problematic anyway and there are replacement Li-ion cells that are easily installed which effectively upgrade it to 5M6X calibre which will provide 6 months power reserve.
