Thank you for contacting FixYa.
If you have a good quality scuba dive watch that needs to be repaired, such as needing a battery replacement, it can be tempting to do it yourself. After all, don't you just need a screwdriver, a battery and rubber gasket (possibly)?
Well, yes. But if you do it yourself, you run the risk of voiding the warranty.
So if you change it yourself and the watch later floods, you are out of luck. So check your warranty information carefully before you attempt to do anything yourself or have someone other than the manufacturer/authorized dealer do the work.
If the manufacturer changes the batteries or does any other dive watch repair, they will normally retest the watch and certify that it is still water resistant to whatever level applies.
This is not to say that a qualified watch repair shop can't do the job. It's your decision but at least it will be an informed one.
So the long and short of dive watch repair - if it's a good dive watch, you'll probably want the manufacturer/authorized dealer to handle it if you don't want to void the warranty. A cheap dive watch? Probably not worth the bother.

My aqualung duplex alternates flashing seconds then "ER"in the lower display window, I've reset it as the manual instructs, after pushing the stem back in it beeps twice then starts the same...


This watch needs to be sent back to the factory to get the movement replaced. I am doing this for the second time in 4 years. Citizen Europe states it's a defective design. The watch goes into dive mode with sweat, humidity and washing your hands. The water sensor tells the computer it's gone diving but the pressure sensor isn't telling it the same thing which causes a fault with the computer. I was told to cover the water sensor with WAX by the factory repair facility. WAX on a $400 dive watch. Great. They shold have used the pressure sensor to initiate dive mode. Customer Service said it wasn't defective, so it was designed to need this part everytime the battery has to bre replace.

I have a Techno Marine diving watch. It just stopped. How do I best replace the battery. Myself? Or do I need to send it somewhere? Cebron


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
NEVER attempt to replace a battery on a diving watch yourself. It will break the seal.
You will need to send back to Technomarine or take to a registered Technomarine service center.

Arm on the case broke off


mcdevito75 here, I hope you have a warantee with the watch, even if you don"t contact Luminox watch with this problem, Hold onto that broken piece off the watch. Problem is the case is 1 solid piece, the watch company will want to see the broken case and piece offf the watch, hopefully they might figire a defect in the case cause the piece to break off and replace the case for you for FREE, I doubt it BUT, you never know.

How to remove back to replace battery


take it to a reputable jeweler who can water test after the cell is replaced...if the gasket gets damaged with the caseback off the watch it will no longer be water resistant and will most definately rust if exposed to water

Divers watch needs refurbished & repair.

This is a link to the Movado Group service centers, they make ESQ watches. It appears your watch has had water seep inside the case. It could be the seals around the caseback or crown. Whether repair is worth it, is up to you. I have had Casio dive watches I have sent into repair because I liked them, not for the value of the watch. In general ESQ makes a nice watch and if you like it, why not see what repair would cost. However, if this is a moisture problem, more than just visible corrosion has probably occured and the movement could compromised, if that is the case the costs of repair might outweigh just purchasing another watch. Good luck and I hope you found this helpful,
