Question about Swiss Army Watches

Open Question

When the battery was replaced in my Swiss Army watch the repair shop didn't replace the little insulator under the battery, causing it to only run for a few hours. Where can I purchase this insulator?

Did you have the battery checked to see if it was bad a first? Take it to a Reputable watchrepair , and ask them to CHECK your battery NOT replace it. Alot of times your watch will have a mechanical problem which will make your watch look like it is o.k. once you replace the battery but, two weeks later the watch stops again because the battery has lost enough power to now stop the watch again. Also your watch may have a electrical problem which a battery will not solve the problem. The coil (the orange straight piece in the movement), or the curcit board could be bad. Always have the store check your battery because, if you ask them to change your battety they will no matter if your original battery is good or not.

SOURCE: Watch going in reverse

There is no difference in watch batteries as they are produced by the certain standards. That means you have replaced the right battery.
The simplest solution would be re-replacing the battery. Just take the battery out and leave the watch without battery for 5 minutes, then put the battery back. Make sure the battery is fitted the right way (the + side usually facing up).
If this doesn;t help - let me know.

Rate, please.

SOURCE: How to remove the back cover of the swiss army

The back will either have a small slot on one edge to pry it off or indentations around the perimeter for a case wrench to unscrew it. Specialized tools are used to avoid scratching the case. You best bet is to take it to a watch shop and let them do it. Most places charge between $3 - $8 to properly do it without damaging the case and they should also change the gasket to maintain water resistance if so equipped. Once you have it open you risk damaging the movement as you change the battery. It's not that it's a tricky procedure but you can easily damage something that will cost a LOT more than $8 to fix if you don't have experience.

How do you open back to change battery?


Swiss Army watches require a special tool. You will need to call your local jewelers and ask if they do Swiss Army watches as not every jeweler has the tool to do it.
Good luck

The second hand jumps forward every 5 seconds but the watch still keeps time OK.


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.

Connect metal strap to watch


If it brok at the hinge where the strap connects to the watch itself, then you might just need to replace the clip that slides in. Its a little metal tube with a spring in it. You should be able to find them at any retail shop. If all else fails, take it to a shop or jeweler.
