They absolutely should be resealed..all the o-ring and gaskets need to be cleaned and resiliconed (watchmakers silicone, not the stuff you buy off the store shelf)...just one gasket damaged or dry and brittle and your watch may leak.

How to change a battery


If watch expensive, take it to Shop to get it changed , if watch waterproof, it needs to be changed at a shop, as when battery changed , shop checks that the watch is still 100% waterproof.

W to changebattery #65041g


Changing the battery on most watches is fairly straightforward and needs only the usual tiny screwdriver, insulated tweezers and a large measure of patience and good eyesight.
The main problem is usually opening the case and in the case of a quality watch that is guaranteed waterproof it really should be returned to the manufacturer for battery fitting and pressure testing. If testing isn't carried out after the case has been opened the watch realistically then becomes merely water resistant rather than waterproof.

Usually it is the back of the watch case that must be opened and in the case of ordinary non-waterproof and non-water resistant types it is a simple matter to prise the back off with a thin blade and then refit it with finger pressure.
Water-resistant watch cases that have a priseable back often need the back pressing back on with force supplied either by a purpose-made press or a large bench vice. In both cases adapters are needed to prevent damage to the case and the crystal.

A lot of watches have a back that unscrews and strictly a dedicated key, wrench or spanner is needed for this task. I have managed to overcome this problem a number of times by pressing other tools "that look as if they might do the job" into service. I cannot say what it was I used as I wandered around my workshop just trying things. I think the last time a particular circlip plier did the trick.

Simpler to take the watch and have someone else replace the battery I think.

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,

Is an Omega seamaster copy waterproof? (And this is not a Chinese cheap copy either. It appears very convincing.)


Generally it is safe to assume that copies are not waterproof although they be water resistant. Genuine omegas are sealed and compressed which is why a battery change at an authorised dealer (who will end the watch to omega) is approx £40.

Can I replace the battery on my Michele watch anywhere?


It's too expensive to change it on proper service or mall... you can purchase battery for amazon and change it at home, take a look here: Rayovac Batteries Lasts as Long Costs Less. I hope this helped. Cheers
