Swatch batteries should be replaced by removing battery cover on the back. If there is no such a cover, it can be done by taking out watch glass. The latter should be done by watch repairer, for it takes a lot of specialized tools and skill.

My Swatch Irony watch has recently been running slow. I thought it might be a low battery, but after a replacement, it still loses time (a few minutes each day). Any ideas?


Thank you for contacting Fixya,<br /> I would have the battery checked again. Sometimes batteries in stores can be past the extended life of battery. Otherwise could be a number of issues. Has it been around water? Dropped? Could need cleaning. In cases of most watches, like Swatch, the cost to have repaired may exceed the watch. <br /> You can contact Swatch at:<br /> <a href="http://www.swatch.com/zz_en/shop.html">http://www.swatch.com/zz_en/shop.html</a>

Swatch Irony Battery replacement will not work


mcdevito75 here, I am thinking your watch ran fine before the battery change. It sounds like the new battery is not makeing good enough contact, you can try, removeing the battery and cleaning the contacts in the watch carefully with a Q tip, dip the Q tip in anything containing alcohol cologne, rubbing alcohol, perfume wet the Q tip good, then sqeeze most out of the Q tip as not too saturate the battery contacts, also clean the battery itself, the oil on your fingers could give it a poor contact on the watch. The stop watch section doesn"t take as much battery power as the second hand. You may also be able to jump start your watch also, You"ll need a needle and a magnifier glass, With the back off your watch, right in the middle of the movement, just below where the stem (winder) goes, you"ll just see part of a little gear, this is the hour hand gear, see if you can gently move that gear just a fraction, place the needle between the teeth of the gear and try to move it as gentle as possible then se if the gear will move on it"s own., be very carefull with the movement. Swatch watches are collectables. If you don"t feel comfortable doing the above, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for help.

My swatch model is swatch irony YSS112G. It stops working and when i took it to swatch shop the assistant told me its due to the mechanical problem since a new battery was restored. i was told that it was...


mcdevito75 here, Once any Quatrz mechanism goes, it"s ususlly gone. New replacement Quartz mechanisms are sold but just the mechanism itself could cost $30.00---$70.00 then the labor to have it installed, A Swatch watch is a COLLECTABLE item, it may be worth the expense of a new Quartz Mechanism, spaek with the watch shop about details.

Put in new battery and it does not run.


It is because some 317 batteries have their negative terminal plate flashed a little bit into the positive side plate and some are a bit thicker thus the negative plate of the skin swatch touches the side of the battery. sometimes battery cove/lid cannot be closet when the battery is a minute thick. renata battery is just right for the skin swatch.

Hye...my watch swatch stop functioning even i already changed the battery.


Could be Following Reason

1, Watch movement required overhaul
2, Circuit or coil warn out
3, Battery connection are not on right place
4, Test new battery to check its strength

If watch has only battery cover on the back and does not has backcase
like most of swatch watches are then watch can not be overhaul.
hope this information is helpful
