Your watch has lifetime warranty - not the battery. Battery should be replaced as soon as it goes flat. Do not leave flat battery in watch - it may leak and destroy the movement. Pop in your nearest watch repair shop and ask to replace battery. Rate me please.
Movements become "dry" over time and must be serviced.
Another common problem we see is that there is oil or battery acid (from a previously leaking battery) inhibiting proper connection between the contacts and the battery.
The quartz and the circuit itself may also go bad on a movement at any time.
If it is under warranty, you may send it back directly to Lucien Piccard.
I recommend you visit your local Certified Master Horologist for what is usually a free diagnostic. They can test the battery, the connection, the movement, and usually repair, service, or replace the movement for you. They will also generally give a free estimate.
If this watch is several year old, it could be that the power cell is defective, and won't hold a charge. I have been also told by a Citizen Tech, that they will sometimes "hangup" or lock up, and may just need a quick jolt. This doesn't happen often, but Citizen has the equipment to test and supply this jolt to sort of kick start the movement again. They would also replace the battery while it was open. You can sometimes place it into direct sunlight for 15-30 minutes, but no longer...unless you want to melt the insides...lol.
Most Geniune Citizens have a five year warranty. Keep that mind too. Thanks.
If they have replaced that many watches in that short period, I'm going to say that it isn't the watch.
Timex watches are equipped with some of the largest and strongest batteries in the industry and have some of the best reserve potentials. Have you ever replaced a battery and did it make a difference?
Do you use a magnetic bracelet or work around strong magnetic fields - either of which can deplete a battery - generally in about four months? If so, put the bracelet and watch on opposite wrists. This is usually not a problem with a digital watch. I suspect it's because the magnet makes the analog movement work harder and depletes the battery faster.
And some people just can't wear a certain watch. My mother is one of them. There is something electrical or magnetic about my mother that keeps her from wearing a mechanical watch. When I was a kid, the only watch she could wear was a green plastic Davy Crockett watch.
And 50 years ago, my left handed brother gave me his hand-me-down Timex when it quit working for him. I put it on my left wrist and got several more years of wear out of the watch. I think he wore out the movement on one side wearing it on his right wrist and I wore out the jewels on the other side wearing it on my left wrist.
The only way to find out what model of Omega you actually own is to open it. This should have been done by whoever you already brought it to. Omega only prints their model #'s on the movement inside the watch. If you open the watch, look on the movement, you'll know what model you own.
