The watch movement deters which battery the watch needs it is very important you do not put a battery in that doesn't suit the watch as it can short out the circuit however you can get the correct size in a gold seal quality which should not leak, also the older the watch, the more demanding the watch becomes on the battery as the movement components start to experience wear and tear

Your watch is draining the charge on the battery. It is possible that you have a bad coil or circuit block that is causing the battery to die. An acceptable battery should last you at least 9 months to a year. You need to send your watch in to the manufacturer to have them fix the motor.
mcdevito75 Here, Your Ann Klien watch may take a 364 or 371 battery, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area, the $15.00 cost is worth it as you would have to remove the back of the watch then un screw the hold for the battery, your time and effort really isn"t worth it, plus the new battery will last a year maybe even longer.
mcdevito75 here, Battery usually lasts 1 year and longer, even if you did change the battery yourself now, you"d forget for a year or even longer next time battery needeed to be changed, I know I did. Add to this you can easily destroy your watch with in-correct handleing. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this battery change $10--$15.00 and peace of mind.
Thank you for contacting FixYa.
First of all, unless it is stamped or it is in the manual, I cant tell you what size battery, nor can a watchmaker unless they take measurements of the watch area.
You have a nice watch. My BEST advice is to take to an authorized Geneve watch dealer or to send direct to them (contact them first). http://www.raymond-weil.com/EN/Swiss-Watch-Company/After-Sale-Service.html
Let me be honest with you. Dont. If you dont know what your are doing to change a battery, you will do more harm then good. And once that happens, you will lose your RW warranty.
My best solution is to take to a certified local RW dealer and if you dont know who is in your area, check this link: http://www.raymond-weil.com/EN/RW-Geneva/Contact-Us.html
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.
If anyone opted out to replace battery in their own watch and do not know what type and size of battery is correct for replacement, just open your watch case back and reed and memorize all the writings on battery your watch allready has in it. All you can do now is to buy exactly the same replacement battery and you will never get it wrong. All that matters is the combination of letters and numbers on battery. Make is not important, so, it can be made by Casio, Maxell, Citizen, Ronda - you name it. Just make sure you are not buying some of those cheap, unknown maker batteries, as they usualy lasts for about few weeks and then they are gone. Choose well known makers name and the battery will power your watch for 2-7 years, depending on each particular watch movement model. In case if you lost your original watch battery, check your watch instruction manual. If you lost both - battery and manual - then there is no other way, but to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help. In your particular case I do not see the reason why you should find the battery, because any decent watchmaker has many different batteries in stock. All you have to do is to find your closest watch repair shop and ask watchmaker to replace the battery. No need at all to send it to Luminox, as this job can be done at any watch workshop with the same precision and quality. In addition you will save money for shipping and pay less for battery itself. Rate me, plz.
All battery driven watches are sensitive, not just the Chase-Durer. Even the cheap ones, as the movement can be damaged or destroyed by the static electricity (touch of the bare finger). Extra care is not needed to replace your watch battery, just you have to follow some simple, but very basic rules. If you are ready to do it yourself- let me know and I'll guide you throgh all the steps (by asking me questions on this site). Ifyou are not, then I'll let you know the best place to do that at nearest shop possible.
The phrase, "Fabrique en Chine", is French for, "Fabricated (made) in China".
Your watch, like many of the low cost watches that are sold all over the world is made in China. They have many hundreds of these watch factories turning these products out by the millions, and badging them with all kinds of names on them.
Enjoy the watch while it keeps time. When it breaks, it's time for a new one.
I go through low cost watches like crazy. The longest I can have an average watch before busting it is about 3 to 6 months. I found the best make for keeping time and lasting the longest was the Timex. I sometimes manage to get more than a year out of this make. Either I am slowing down, or their watches are very strong!
