Did you have the battery checked to see if it was bad a first? Take it to a Reputable watchrepair , and ask them to CHECK your battery NOT replace it. Alot of times your watch will have a mechanical problem which will make your watch look like it is o.k. once you replace the battery but, two weeks later the watch stops again because the battery has lost enough power to now stop the watch again. Also your watch may have a electrical problem which a battery will not solve the problem. The coil (the orange straight piece in the movement), or the curcit board could be bad. Always have the store check your battery because, if you ask them to change your battety they will no matter if your original battery is good or not.

Does the Swiss Army Wenger Alpine 72558 Wrist Watch take a battery?


Yes, it has a Swiss Quartz movement, so a battery is what makes your watch work. Need a new battery? Take it an authorized dealer or other business that has the right tool to open the case. It's not worth ruining an expensive watch just to save a couple of dollars to change the battery.

How do you open back to change battery?


Swiss Army watches require a special tool. You will need to call your local jewelers and ask if they do Swiss Army watches as not every jeweler has the tool to do it.
Good luck

The second hand jumps forward every 5 seconds but the watch still keeps time OK.


You need to replace battery.
Q/A from swiss army website.
Q. How do I know when the battery needs changing?
A. In select models, the battery end-of-life indicator signals that the battery should be replaced within two or three days. When the battery is low, the second hand stands still for 2-4 seconds, and then speeds up to the correct time. This indication will last for approximately one week, and then the timepiece hands stand still.

I am trying to replace the battery in my watch; I've put the new battery in, but the watch has not restarted. What should I do next


I've had the exact same problem on my Wenger Standard Issue. I tried installing a new battery, with the result being a watch that didn't move. Then it sat for 13 years. I decided to give it one last try. I installed a new battery and, again, no movement. This may sound stupid, but I pulled the stem out, installed the battery and pushed in the stem. Works fine now.

Swiss army stopped, im stressing..


If it's a quartz (battery powered) watch test the voltage of the battery. If below 1.5v then replace with new. Ensure battery contacts make good contact with the battery and are free of corrosion/rust/contamination of any sort. Check operating manual for any specifics regarding battery replacement proceedure.
