Your quartz watch does not work anymore ? Don't worry, we'll explain how to do this so that you can postpone your watch very quickly. First of all, it is important to remember that unlike automatic watches for men where the automatic watches for women, quartz watches have a battery. The battery of your quartz watch is an important part of your watch, it is this that will give the energy necessary for its operation. However, the life of a battery is not unlimited, which is why you have to change it approximately every two years.
If you are not a professional, we advise you to go at a watchmaker forchange the battery. Indeed, it is child's play for a watchmaker while this manipulation can be a real headache for novices and it requires a few tools that you will not necessarily have.
Some of you may still want to take the challenge and change the battery in your watch on your own!
We are here to help you carry out this manipulation in the best possible conditions. However if your watch is a waterproof watch We strongly recommend that you do not change the battery in your watch at home because you will not be able to test the water resistance of your watch once the battery has been changed.
First, you must determine if your watch has a clipped caseback or a screwed caseback because the method for changing the watch battery will differ slightly:
Once the case is open, take a tweezer (or tweezers) and remove the plastic casing ring then change the battery of your watch with a similar battery in all respects (component, size, voltage). There are 3 types of batteries: silver oxide batteries, alkaline batteries and lithium batteries.
Finally, there are different sizes of watch batteries: the diameter of a battery is between 5mm and 20mm and the thickness is between 1 and 6mm.
If swapping a silver oxide battery and an alkaline battery on your watch does not present a major danger for the latter, it should be noted that you absolutely must not put a lithium battery on a watch that is not designed to house this type of battery. This could irreversibly damage your watch. In order not to be mistaken on the type of model, refer to the battery correspondence table.
Once the battery has been changed, replace the fitting ring by positioning the notch in the strapping at the level of the stem of the crown.
Keep in mind that changing the watch battery at home can affect the water resistance of the watch and that you can deteriorate the movement of the watch with improper handling. If you're not sure, we can't recommend that you go directly to your watchmaker.
