The right way to replace your watch battery
Always make sure a Watchmaker works on your watch.
Most watches these days are water resistant. After opening your watch you break the seal, meaning your watch is no longer water resistant, dust proof or sealed from moisture. That’s why most manufacturers these days recommend that you send the watch back to them for even a simple watch battery replacement. You must ensure your watch is sealed back correctly, gaskets replaced or lubricated, watch is pressure tested to the recommended depth, and your watch is cleaned inside and outside around the case back.
Unfortunately these days many places offer to replace your watch battery for a very low price only for in-store traffic. What consumers are finding out is that this is the most irresponsible way to replace your watch battery, or in general opening a watch (how would you know that your watch is sealed correctly) and it will cost you much more in the long run. We see this everyday in our repair centers. Please learn more about your watch or contact your watch manufacturer for battery replacement requirements.

When you replace your watch battery you have to open the watch and that breaks the seal. So it’s important to seal your watch back to avoid moisture or water damage and that’s way many responsible stores or department stores say we have to ship your watch out. The worst thing you can do is open the watch and close it back without making sure the watch is sealed properly, that’s why many people these days get foggy glass or water inside their watch without knowing the reason behind it.
Every watch we open we make sure it’s sealed back correctly to avoid damaging your watch. We also follow the manufacturer’s guide lines with the necessary steps.

This is a battery end-of-life indicator. Watches with this feature have electronic circuits that detect when the battery voltage is getting low. Their circuitry makes the second hand move forward erratically to alert the wearer that it is time to replace the battery. Installing a new battery should restore the watch’s life so the second hand will advance normally again.
What should I do? Using the chronograph function often or leaving it running constantly will shorten battery life considerably. It is important to understand that more battery power will be required to enable all of the functions other than basic timekeeping. In fact, if left running for extended periods of time, electronic chronograph/stopwatch functions on some watches will stop running automatically. To conserve battery power, it is best to stop the chronograph function when the need for timing is completed.
This is a somewhat common problem, indicating the electronic circuitry may have a defect. One of the factors causing this to happen can be explained using the principles of basic physics. Expansion occurs when there is an increase in temperature. In this case, the electronic circuit may have a bad contact or defect within. When the watch is off the wrist and at room temperature, all of the contact points and circuits function properly. However, when the watch is being worn, your body temperature might cause a slight expansion. The alarm worked fine until the battery was changed. Can this be fixed? Several factors can cause this problem. The most common explanation is that the alarm contact spring is not in the correct position. This can sometimes be an easy fix.
