Timex SSQ reviving possible?

Recommended Posts

A while ago i have bumped into a Timex SSQ and fell in love with it. I love the shape and form of the watch, so i am wearing it on my wrist. But ... not functioning... "your watch is dead" , people are telling me. As i am not an expert in watches i did open the inside of the Timex to see what was going on. Immediately - of course - i saw the corrosion damaged by the battery cell. 
Well, my question is: 

- is it repairable?
- Does anyone know to point me in the right direction?
- Does it need a new module? 
- Any suggestions will be helpfull: i'm not going to throw my Timex SSQ away :)

After i opened the watch, i carefully closed it again. Better be looked by a person who really knows what he's talking about.

But i took pictures, so i you can see what i saw. 


Well, hope somebody can help me ! 


Tilburg, the Netherlands.

I'm afraid that the cell looks to have leaked and the movement is ruined.  You might be able to find a working watch for spares and swap the movement

Do new LCD module replacement exist?

I saw a website  - strikesandspares - that provides new LED modules for old LED watches. So i was wondering if the same goes for LCD watches.

Must have been another thread, but I remember someone suggested strikesandspares.eu, they specialize in led modules and repairs.

Or are LED and LCD modules interchangeable? Thinking about it: can a LED module be placed in a watch-case that was meant for LCD?
