if it's a water proof watch or water resistant then yes it might use pressure instead of an O-Ring to seal the watch from letting water inside of it. And if thats the case the watch let water in like a sponge in the current state it is in. If i were you and the watch was that important to me, i would take and send it in. Watch battery's need replacing what every 5-8 years? Over that amount of time the price really isn't too steep.
Not to cast aspersions but it might cost 30% or more of the watch price to replace the battery :)
But yes, you can pop the back off and carefully remove the tiny button cell inside and purchase a comparable battery. I've only seen a couple of Merona watches but both of them had backs that popped off with a Watchmaker's knife.
Well, I go to a jewelry shop called fast fix and purchased a "forever battery " most obvious answer is that the battery is simply dead. Second, there may be debris in the clockwork, which will also kill the battery. Good thing about the forever battery method is that they will clean out the watch for free usually, which saves on them replacing the battery.
I have the same problem with my t touch one, the first model with round push button, after take it to a battery replacement and service, and ask a tissot representative store, I receive two answers and both says that I have to change the movement... means ... the machine, and if is under warranty will be free, is maybe 6 or more years old so no more warranty, sad but true, I let it be. I will not spend at least 400 USD. to do it, so, try to enjoy the rest of functions left and a nice looking watch.
These babies are notorious for going down the tubes with a battery change. I bet if you get it back it won't work with a new battery. Twice I have replaced batteries and the watch didn't work when I finished. One of them was my own watch, I think $450 is about half the price of a new watch and that is sad. Cool watch just not very long life
A replacement watch band may cost as little as $10 and a replacement battery may cost as little as $2. However, if you do not have the right tools or do not feel comfortable performing this service by yourself, expect to pay $5-10 to have your battery changed by a professional. Band replacement may or may not be included in the band purchase price. Retail prices for most metal bands are higher than the price for lower-end leather bands, but premium leather bands may cost upwards of $20.
For the most reasonable price, try looking for a watch kiosk at your favorite shopping mall. Some Walmart jewelry counters will also provide this service. A full-service jewelery store should also be able to provide this service, though at a higher price.
It is best to go to a watchmaker for this issue. If the battery was improperly installed, it can damage the movement or contacts, which will mean the movement must be replaced. We see this issue often. Another common problem is that the oils from the installer's fingers may be causing a bad connection if the battery and the contacts are not properly cleaned. We would use the Pulse test to see if the watch has current, if so, the movement is bad mechanically, it must be replaced. If it has no current, we would check and clean all connections and replace the battery. If there is still no current (using Pulse diagnostic) then the movement is bad and it must be replaced.
