First you have to check if the battery is on full power, as sometimes even brand new batteries are underpowered. Good battery should have 1.54 - 1.57 Volts of charge.
If battery is ok and watch still not working - get the battery out and clean (scrape) all battery related contacts with steel needle untill they are shiny. Use the dust blower to get rid of cmall dirt particles.
Replace the battery. Now the watch should work.
If the watch doesn't work after cleaning contacts, then this is mechanical fault and you will need watchmakers help.
Do not forget to rate, please.

This is my 2nd watch in 4 months and it died again? What can i do to get a watch that works.


I know how frustrating that is, I have to use pocket watches as I have medical devices that emit magnetic charges kills watches and batteries within a few hours. Always had issues as my body has always had strong electrical impulses. Avoid the battery models or try bands that keep the watch body from contacting your skin. Good luck

Watch working fine, however digital panel will not come up. Looking to repair or replace


You may send it back if you have a receipt ,lol,but here is an easier way for you:)
Of all things, you should always just try replacing the battery in your digital watch. These are really inexpensive and most watch stores will install your battery for you for free if you need help, but the process is very simple too. Most watches contain instructions on the back of the watch for replacing the battery. You opening the back panel carefully and review what is inside. You should see a battery that is small and round and metallic in color. Very carefully remove this battery and push the new battery into the exact same position, as the old one and it should fit into place. You should then replace the back panel and try out your watch. There are many good watches that were tossed away due to just a dead battery.
If your digital watch has gotten wet, try opening it up and removing the battery and airing it out. Use a really soft Q-tip to get at areas where there might be sensitive material that can damage easily. Try to dry up as much of the liquid with the Q-tip as possible and let the watch sit unused for a good while. Most digital watches will work if you get to the wet damage quickly enough and dry it up.

Do I need to buy a battery for my new watch?


Most watches with mechanical movements are shipped with the battery disconnected (with the crown extended). Watches with an LCD display that is on will have been drawing the battery down. The original factory supplied battery will not last as long as a brand new battery because of this - but you should get a fair amount of life out of it.

If you're concerned, you can always opt to purchase a new battery and have it installed when buying the watch. Ask to be sure that if installed - the warranty is not voided. Some places will tell you if the watch is opened to replace a battery it will no longer be considered waterproof. If that's the case *RUN* and find a reputable dealer to purchase from instead. If they will install - make sure the sales slip indicates that THEY installed a battery for you. Then go home and wet the watch or put an a glass of water to be sure the seal it good. You should get that type of sales slip whenever someone installs a battery in your watch.

I had same problem at watch makers and the put the old battery back for the digital secnods count and it started working. I guess the moral of the story is don't replace the digital seconds battery.

I Have a problem with my Technomarine ABS05. There is changed a battery by someone. but the watch doesnt work. I removed the back and some oil came out. where can i find that sort of oil? How can I change...


Hi,

Oil should not come out of a watch. There just isn't that much oil in a watch to have it dripping out.

Are you sure it wasn't water? I can see where moisture could have gotten inside the watch if it was not sealed properly after the battery change.

The fast mall battery change places, jewelers and mart stores do not hire people that are trained to change batteries properly. We have a love hate relationship with those places. We love them because they keep us in business with all the watches they damage. We hate that they are in the business of replacing batteries in the first place because of how many watches they damage.

If you had one of those cheap battery stores replace the battery most likely they did not reseal your watch and it got water inside. This water will cause the problems you have now with your watch.

You will need to have a qualified watchmaker repair your watch.

Hope this helps,

Seiko flightmaster fitted new battery watch wont work atall


Most likely the watch was damaged when the battery was installed. Quartz watches have fragile parts in them. The coils for instance are made of wire thinner than the hair on your head. It takes almost nothing to damage these wires and the coil. Dirt is a big problem. Since a quartz watch has no force behind the gear train the smallest particle of dirt can stop a quartz watch.

Either your watch will need a cleaning or damaged parts will need replacing.

A qualified watchmaker can do this work and get your watch back in working order for you.

Hope this helps,
