Thank you for contacting FixYa.
First of all, unless it is stamped or it is in the manual, I cant tell you what size battery, nor can a watchmaker unless they take measurements of the watch area.
You have a nice watch. My BEST advice is to take to an authorized Geneve watch dealer or to send direct to them (contact them first).

Best regards. Jewel

Received a watch last Christmas. Have replaced the battery several in this past year???? Last time I replaced....watched & stopped running in last than 2 weeks??

Two things spring to mind.

Most likely is that it needs a lithium battery which are more powerful and have a longer life. Someone is replacing is with a standard silver oxide battery.

It is has a leakage drain fault and needs to go back under warranty.

I have a Gucci watch which cost £630.00 and the battery lasted 17 months, is that the usual life span for a battery

it can be--their is no definite life span of a battery because everything has a different draw of power a simple watch can last years while more complex such as date/stop watch /backlight etc will draw and kill battery quicker

My watch lens is getting blurd since i replace the battery.. why its getting blurd? Cnt see the dgital numbers.. pls help me to solve it!! Any idea?

Sounds like when they replaced the battery they tore the rubber gasket between the watch and the back plate. This allowed moisture to get in the watch and cloud the lens. Take it to a watch repair shop and they can fix this for you.

What is the battery life like on the Martian passport?

Depending on what you are using the watch for it will have different battery life. Using the talk feature you should get around 2 hours, on standby about 7 days, the analog watch has a seperate battery that should last 2 years and charging the watch takes 2 hours to get a full charge.

I bought this watch 1.5 years back.I have started using that.It worked properly.For the last few months I didn't wear it.Now the watch is not working. So the problem is in the battery ?

On average, I've found that analog wristwatches that use a silver oxide (or alkaline) battery last about a year after a fresh battery has been installed. Digital watches, because they have no moving parts, will typically last longer on a set of batteries if you're not using the alarm or backlight function. Watches that use lithium batteries generally last two years or more between battery changes.

Based on your model watch, I would guess that your battery has run down too far to power the movement. A fresh battery will probably fix your watch. Hint: in the future, if you aren't going to wear your watch for a while, pull the stem out into the "set" position. That will stop the movement and extend the life of your battery. When you want to wear the watch, simply set the time (and date, if you have a date window) and push the stem back in.

Is there a rubber gasket inside battery cover

Yes. In your watch, as with most wristwatches that have a snap-fit case back, there's a thin neoprene gasket that sits either in a groove cast into the watch case or around the part of the case back that snaps into the watch case. Either way, the gasket is designed to further reduce the amount of moisture that can wick in between the tiny gap between the case back and the watch body.

As a matter of procedure, for maximum water resistance, this gasket is supposed to be changed every time the watch is opened (for example, when the battery is replaced). As a practical matter, however, I have often reused a gasket if it has not been distorted from pressure or mis-installation (lots of these gaskets end up crimped or pinched when they slip out of position as the case back is pressed into place). Does it provide reduced water resistance? Possibly, though moisture more often enters a watch fastest through the opening for the stem used to set the time. Leaving the back gasket out entirely, however, definitely creates an easy path for sweat and moisture to enter a watch.

I have a one year old berenger atomic time watch that has stopped working last week. May I perhaps need to get a new battery/ What does radio controlled watch mean? Thanks

I would try replacing the battery in your watch to see if it comes back to life. So-called "atomic watches" have tiny radio receivers in them that periodically listen for the official atomic time being broadcast via WWVB in Colorado. However, as you might imagine, it takes a lot more power to operate a radio receiver than it does to power a typical quartz wristwatch, and even with larger-capacity or double batteries, it's been my experience that these watches burn through batteries more quickly than traditional "set them yourself" watches.
An additional factor is that a watch that cannot find the WWVB signal will scan for long periods of time before putting its radio receiver into hibernate mode. So, if your watch has been stored in a basement, an interior room in a large building, or some other place where a radio signal can't penetrate, that would also shorten the watch's battery life.

How long should a watch battery last? I bought my

It is hard to say how long a battery should last without knowing the details of the model.

If it is just a timepiece without any additional functions, then a battery should last at least one year and often will run for two or three.

If there are other functions e.g stop watch, back light, memory, alarm etc., then the life of the battery will depend upon the extent to which these functions are used. How long is a piece of string?

If you think that the battery failing, then take it back to the supplier and ask for a replacement, (if you have the receipt).

Moisture in the face plate

You HAVE to bring your watch to watch repair shop as the moisture in watch can dissapear for an eye, but it will still there and can affect your watch to function properly.
Do not try to dry out watch yourself as the temperature changes can affect the watch as well.
Find your nearest watch repair shop as quick as you can because that moisture is shortening your watch life very quickly.
Don't forget to rate, please.
