BATTERIES

If you wish the battery in your watch changed CORRECTLY, then you have come to the right place!

I have seen many "butchered" watches because of inept "repair people" trying to put batteries in watches because they did not know what they were doing. I have seen scraped, scratched, and gouged cases. I have seen broken crystals. I have seen watches ruined because the old case gasket, or no case gasket, was put in when the back was put back on and water got in (you are also supposed to test water resistant watches for water resistance every time the case is opened and closed). I have seen broken stems and bent case tubes from people hitting the watch case to close it (the local drug store does batteries for $2, they put the watch on the counter and smack it to close it, needless to say some people end up getting a new watch). I have seen many watches that had poor battery life, mainly because someone used a finger to put in the battery (you are not supposed to touch them with your fingers, it cuts the life in half). In other words, some people just should not be doing the work, especially if they don't know what they are doing to start with. AWCI is now giving training on battery changes to people like watch kiosks and jewelers, to make sure they know the proper way to do the work. Now, I'm not saying no one else out there knows how to put a watch battery in, but I would make sure they know what they are doing. Make sure they use a new case gasket, plastic tweezers and a buff stick to put in the battery, and a case press to close the case (not a rubber hammer or their fist on the watch case). Have the proper openers for a watch case and water resistance test equipment are also essential. My battery overhaul package is a little more comprehensive than most "battery changes", but then I feel you get what you pay for in the end.

This package includes:

Please follow all the steps under shipping below and include a check/MO for $35. There is also no need to get this work approved before sending the watch. My shipping address is at the bottom of this page. Thank you!
