Lucien Piccard Battery Replacement

Hi
How does one change the battery on a 14K Lucien Piccard watch. I have heard that the crystal has to be removed and that you cannot service them yourselves.
Thanks

    How to change battery on this watch? I have the same problem. I guess you have to remove the crystal and how does the movement come out? Does the stem split apart on this watch or does the movement tip out?

The arrows you are seeing are for sizing the band. I cannot find 26311SS in my data base, but I have a good idea what you need to do. The curved piece is a safty that goes over the clasp. Take something like a round toothpick and with the curved piece going to the right like this: ( put the toothpick under the far lefthand side, in the middle and see if you can pry it up ,( I say use a tooth pick so not to scratch up your watch) it should flip over to the right.Check and see if there are any spring loaded buttons on either side of the clasp, if there is push them in ,and lift to your left If there is no buttons just pry up towards your left. If this dosn't work PLEASE let me know, and I will find the exact watch and we can go from there. Good luck!!

You may have arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet,make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
Don't forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: Replacing Batteries on Sealed Watches

Who ever told you that story about throwing it away should not be in the business of repairing watches. I have the same problem and googled Lucienpiccardusa.com. They do lifetime battery replacement and some general servicing according to your warrenty. From what I read on their web site you only pay for the shipping charges.

Hope this helps you. JFG

Go to the web site "lucienpiccardusa.com/"

From the menu on the left select "customer care".

Scroll down the page until you find "instruction downloads"

Choose "three stage movement instructs"

If this is not quite what you need, you could email them.

I received a lucien piccard vd53 watch and can't get it to run.What do I do to start it??


I see your watch has a Seiko VD53 Quartz Chronograph Movement. Several possibilities come to mind - the watch may have a small plastic spacer under the crown which is there to stop the battery running flat before the watch is sold. If that's the case then simply remove the spacer and press the crown in. Possibly, the battery is flat and will need replacing, or you've received a faulty watch - either way (and I interpret your using the word 'received' as meaning that it was a gift to you) you should tactfully point this out to the giver. They wouldn't want to have wasted their money, and hopefully they've kept the receipt.

Value for 28116BK


about $100.

Lucien Piccard is a brand with distant Swiss heritage, which now has the same address as Invicta, SWI group, Stuhrling/Akribos and World of Watches. Asian manufacture and always a deep "discount" from list price. This isn't to say that they don't have some great looking watches, only intended as a bit of background to the company.

Changed power cell and watch still not running


Movements become "dry" over time and must be serviced.

Another common problem we see is that there is oil or battery acid (from a previously leaking battery) inhibiting proper connection between the contacts and the battery.

The quartz and the circuit itself may also go bad on a movement at any time.

If it is under warranty, you may send it back directly to Lucien Piccard.

I recommend you visit your local Certified Master Horologist for what is usually a free diagnostic. They can test the battery, the connection, the movement, and usually repair, service, or replace the movement for you. They will also generally give a free estimate.
