My watch lens is getting blurd since i replace the battery.. why its getting blurd? Cnt see the dgital numbers.. pls help me to solve it!! Any idea?

Sounds like when they replaced the battery they tore the rubber gasket between the watch and the back plate. This allowed moisture to get in the watch and cloud the lens. Take it to a watch repair shop and they can fix this for you.

How to get moisture out of a watch

Ive heard people say many times to put cell phones in a bowl of dry white rice to remove moisture from them,so Im sure it would work for a watch as well. Just make sure to leave the watch in the rice over night,and make sure to have none of the watch showing in the rice---it will need to pull moisture from within the tiny parts.

Water (vapor) under the crystal

Water condensation on the inside of your watch crystal means that moisture has entered your watch, most likely through the hole in which the setting crown/stem is fitted, or, possibly, through the door of your battery compartment. It's usually easier for water to enter a watch then to leave it again. Water inside a watch can quickly corrode delicate parts, causing erratic timekeeping and premature failure of the watch, so you'll want to get it out of your watch as quickly as possible.

Fortunately, it's not that difficult to get moisture out of a Swatch. Pull the crown out into the time setting position and remove the back battery hatch. Then, turn the watch face down and leave it in the sun for a few hours. If you're worried about dust and/or rain getting into your watch, leave it inside a parked car that's in the sun--that will actually speed up the drying process, as car interiors, with the windows closed, quickly heat up far beyond outside ambient temperatures (except in winter). If it's dark outside, you can accelerate the drying process by using a hair dryer set to low / medium heat and heating the crystal gently until the moisture has evaporated. You don't want to heat the crystal too much or else it may start to melt or crack.

Once the water is out of the watch, close up the battery compartment and update the time/date for your watch. You should be good to go, as long as you try to keep your watch dry when doing things like washing hands and the like. If you had been doing so, it's also time to stop wearing your watch when you shower, wash your car, or engage in other activities where the watch is exposed to a lot of water.

Is there a rubber gasket inside battery cover

Yes. In your watch, as with most wristwatches that have a snap-fit case back, there's a thin neoprene gasket that sits either in a groove cast into the watch case or around the part of the case back that snaps into the watch case. Either way, the gasket is designed to further reduce the amount of moisture that can wick in between the tiny gap between the case back and the watch body.

As a matter of procedure, for maximum water resistance, this gasket is supposed to be changed every time the watch is opened (for example, when the battery is replaced). As a practical matter, however, I have often reused a gasket if it has not been distorted from pressure or mis-installation (lots of these gaskets end up crimped or pinched when they slip out of position as the case back is pressed into place). Does it provide reduced water resistance? Possibly, though moisture more often enters a watch fastest through the opening for the stem used to set the time. Leaving the back gasket out entirely, however, definitely creates an easy path for sweat and moisture to enter a watch.

Hi, i was caught in a thunder shower and since then i have moisture cloud under my face dial of the watch.please guide me to remove the moisture cloud . a.jarrahian

Best thing to do is remove the back and let it air dry for a few hours or until the cloud is gone, but it means your back or stem gasket needs replacing. You can use a hair dryer to speed the process. Keep an eye on the heat.

How much should it cost to change the battery in my Tag Heuer Aquaracer waterproof watch?

That depends on where you are and on if a professional watchmaker is doing it (so the job is done right) or if you are taking it to a watch breaker at the mall or local jeweler.

A watchmaker will not only change the battery but will make sure the watch is resealed again which could require new gaskets. A watch breaker doesn't care about such things and will charge almost nothing but your watch will not be guaranteed to be water resistant from one of those people.

Water resistance is important. Everyone perspires and that moisture will get inside a watch if it is not sealed. It may not seem like a lot of moisture to you but honestly, the parts inside a watch cannot stand moisture. They corrode and rust within a few days even with the smallest amount of moisture. Once rust starts it cannot be stopped by drying the watch out. The parts with rust damage normally have to be replaced.

Now on a $10 watch no one will care about water resistance or for that matter replacing the battery most times. But on an expensive watch such as yours this is important because having to replace the parts of the movement is expensive and so you can expect to pay more for a professional battery change.

Hope this helps,
