Replacing Batteries on Sealed Watches

I recently purchased a Lucien Piccard Ladies 18K gold swiss made watch, model 23170 (on ebay). When I tried to have the battery replaced at one of the local malls, I was told by a representative that the watch was sealed and there was no way to open it and replace the battery. He said "it's the type of watch you buy and when the battery dies you throw it away." Why would lucien piccard manufacture a watch made of 18K gold (swiss made) only to be thrown away? This makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever. Is there any advice you can offer me? Thank you. J

Who ever told you that story about throwing it away should not be in the business of repairing watches. I have the same problem and googled Lucienpiccardusa.com. They do lifetime battery replacement and some general servicing according to your warrenty. From what I read on their web site you only pay for the shipping charges.

Hope this helps you. JFG

Whats the value serial number 980512 lucien piccard


Probably not what you paid for it, sad to say. So many were made, and with the recession and the advent of a reliable timepiece in everyone's pocket anyway, the collector's market for elegant wristwatches has declined somewhat. It also varies dramatically depending on what kind of market you're selling in. Pawnbrokers, jewelers, and watch collectors all have different ideas of how to determine a piece's value. Condition and provenance also play a large part of any appraisal. I wouldn't accept less than $250 if I were you, but I wouldn't expect more than $500. In the long run, your best bet to have it keep its' value would be to keep it until it can be classified as vintage or an antique. Once most of the other Lucien Piccard watches that were made at the same time as it was have failed, been melted for gold or lost, the value will start to go up again, and if you or your family can keep it for a VERY long time indeed, then it's definitely possible to make a profit on a watch.

I have a lucien piccard watch, purchased probably in the 70's. Would it be water resistant?


Yes, I think that your Lucien Piccard Watch is water resistant until now as long that the gasket of the caseback is still intact. and for you to find out that the gasket of your watch is still intact then, you should bring your watch to the expert to check your watch gasket. i hope i solve your problem.

What is this Lucien Piccard model called s/n 36595 I have had this watch for over 30 years, recently cleaned and still keeps perfect time. I have not seen another watch similar in looks to this.


It is called a good watch. The serial number is meaningless I am afraid. I have no idea what watch you have from the info you gave. Other than it sounds like "a good watch"

Replace battery


Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.
