A worn-out, or broken battery should be replaced immediately so that potential leakage and consequent damage to the movement of the second and minute hands is reduced. When it comes to noticeably slowing batteries, quick replacement is vital.
Watch batteries have the capacity to power your watch for roughly two to five years, depending on the make, the size of the watch, and the different features that the watch offers that require battery-based energy to regularly function. For example, if a seconds hand begins to move in 4-second steps, the battery should be changed by a Qualified Technician.
|This can happen to your watch!|
Battery operating watch users might think that battery replacement is a quick fix, but in actuality watch battery replacement is far more complex.
A full watch battery replacement includes:
1.) Separation of the moving parts from the case.
2.) Exchanging all worn-out gaskets (O-rings) because they have a tendency to deteriorate separately due to factors such as UV rays and chlorine exposure.
3.) The old, weakened battery is replaced with a new leak-proof button-type silver oxide battery cell.
4.) This is followed by a series of tests to check for movement consumption, coil resistance and pulse generation.
5.) To ensure maximum ease of use with your newly energized watch the case and the metal bracelet are cleaned in our ultrasound machine, and steamed under high pressure to eliminate any debris or grime.
6.) Once the cleaning and coil checks are complete the moving parts are placed securely inside the watch case.
7.) The replacement is finally concluded by a water resistance test using a pressurized tank and electronic leakage detector.
