Fixing a broken battery contact


norm

Question

I'm thinking maybe a difficult task for an amateur? I guess the little contact would need soldering back in place? Not sure if there's another fix? Maybe one for the jeweler, if not too costly.

Thanks for any thoughts anyone might have :thumbs_up:

Be VERY careful not to damage the coil when replacing the circuit!

Yes indeed, personally if I was doing the repair for myself I’d change the circuit but if I was doing it for a friend I’d replace the movement, just for peace of mind and confident that I could guarantee it for 12 months, but that’s just me. Don’t know the skill level of the op ?

Thanks for your answers there, Andy & John, most helpful. I'm very much at beginner level; only just started out with watch repairs. I am working on my own watches, so if anything didn't quite work out I wouldn't be damaging anyone else's timepiece. Not sure if I'm going for changing the movement or the circuit board yet.

I'II post back with the results once I have some, thanks again :)

Just an update. I went for changing the circuit board - with success! It was a little bit fiddly, for my first attempt. But with some patience (and the odd profanity) I got there :thumbsup:

Thanks once again for your answers, was a great help :)
