One of the most common faults with watches comes when the battery simply reaches the end of its working life. In most modern watches, batteries last for around two years, so being proactive and replacing on a regular basis will ensure you never reach the stage where you go to put your watch on one morning and it’s not working.
Our watch technicians can very quickly replace an old or faulty battery, getting your watch back up and running again in no time. During this process (subject to the case being free of defects and for watches where we can obtain original parts) we will replace the gaskets as required and carry out a pressure test to the appropriate pressure rating of the watch. We will also provide a 12 month warranty on water resistance but please see chart below for guidance on pressure rating expectations. The movement will not be examined in detail during a simple battery replacement but we will advise if there is an obvious fault which prevents the watch from running with a fresh battery.
