Take it to a watch shopor jewelry store and they should be able to do it for about $8. If you do it yourself you'll need some specilaized tools to asvoid damaging the watch and a new gasket for the caseback to keep it water resistant. The old gasket cannot be reused even if it looks ok. Once the gasket has been compressed it will leak if reused.

If I send you my watch to repair how do I know I will get it back?

Because I know I will, I wouldn't do that...I'd feel bad. I have extra batteries for that long as you accept a small percentage...of failure...I'll always send the watch back..with a new battery. I'm just helping the general populous...if things are tight financially. I recommend a trained professional to replace that battery. If you have the money go to a trained-expert watch shop..get a quote...if it's too much $ send to me.

I need to replace the battery in my parsifal watch. The battery was replaced last year so maybe there is something wrong with the watch? What type of battery does this watch require as I'd like to...

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:

After I had the battery replaced the watch is being slow

If your watch is an electronic radio controlled type , then it may be set to the wrong time zone.

Try pressing the mode button to reach the time zone setting and use other buttons to change the city.

Changing the battery

Take it to a reputable watch repair shop and let them change it for you! If you try to change that battery yourself and the crystal breaks or something goes wrong then you will have to send it back to Tissot for repair! They dont sell parts!
