    The ETA-ESA 955.412 dates around 1990 and takes a 371 battery. Get a good make like Renata.

    It's worth trying the quickset moves suggested by Roy, but it's possible there is no quick set mechanism at all. I have one watch where the date just goes back a day if you turn the hands backwards.
    Could you post pictures of your watch, including the movement if you can get the back off safely? There's been some discussion of Remex on here in the past and it would be interesting to see a 60s example.
  3. spinynorman's post in Carled US Module Red Led watch? was marked as the answer   
    I know next to nothing about LED watches, but since you mentioned Gruen, I had a look for theirs. I found one module pictured with batteries, but the photo is small. I read the battery number as AG ... 19, 18 or 13, of which AG13 is the only one that registers. The equivalent of that is SR1154, I think, and I also saw a similar module with a Vinnic 1154.

    Boley lists part numbers for G900 movements. There's a code for the stem, but not the crown.

    I've got two. It's the idea that they might need servicing that caused a deep shudder. I think they're the preserve of @Balaton1109's fabled watchmaker.
    Here are mine, just to keep you company. First, a 237B in an Orefa, which I believe to be French, though there's some room for doubt.
    And then a P62 from a Zand, which is indisputably French.
    What can I tell you - they both run like tractors.

    You could probably find out using a multimeter, or a cheap quartz tester to check for a pulse. But it sounds like this is a nice watch and I wouldn't want to be messing with it myself. If I were you I'd find a repairer who knows about old quartz.

    It's very easy to insert a photo from an external website, just right click on the image, select "Open image in new tab" and paste the URL from that into your post here.

    At the risk of being thought a girlie swot, is this what you're looking for?
    Beautiful watch, btw. Hope you can get it sorted.

    Look locally for a watchmaker (not a jeweller or heel bar) and take it to them. They'll be able to tell you if fixing it is possible.
