Precisionist battery change?

Recommended Posts

Do I need a watch specialist or can I just take the back off and throw another one in?   What will it cost roughly to have it done for me?   Couldn’t beleive when I saw the hands weren’t moving.   I stared at it for a while thinking my eyes had gone.   Thank you

I've changed a few of mine mate, and they are just as easy as any other quartz battery change, so don't get ripped off if you have to get it done by someone else.  The obvious other tip would be, don't take it to Timpsons, but I think that is common knowledge around here :laugh:

Be careful, there is usually a little arm which holds the battery in place try not to bend anything and do it in a clean environment. You can get a pack of 10 batteries for a couple of quid the only issue it won't be guaranteed water resistant.

Don’t buy cheap packets of batteries. They don’t have a very long shelf life. I’ve just checked my battery stock and found some that were out of date by over a year. And they were good quality Swiss made Renata ones

Yeah, mine are all Renata. I generally find the price difference is nothing than buying one or a pack. So I know I've got them if someone comes along needing a Ferness battery. My aunts given me five, Sod's law, they all take 371's which I don't have lol!

I've found them easier to change than other quartz batteries, their large size reduces the chance of a fumble. :yes:
