    Hi, I bought a Raymond Weil off ebay as working. When it arrived it wasn't working. Took it to a watch repair guy who tested it my placing on what looked like a weighing scales and said that the battery wasn't working. Quoted £49.50 for a new battery. Does this all sound legit to you? It's the...

    Hi, just bought a Raymond Weil ladies watch off ebay. Sold as working but it isn't. Took to a watch repair guy who placed it on a machine and said the watch wasn't working. Quoted £49.50 for a new one. Does this sound right? It's my first decent watch since I decided to start collecting. Thanks 🙂
  4. Casio G-Shock
    I have a Casio G-lide (GLX-5600). I put in a new battery a few weeks ago and since then it's unusable. Watch is counting time again, but none of the buttons work anymore. I think it's because I haven't done an AC reset but for some reason I can't seem to pull it off. I have watched every video I...
  5. Casio G-Shock
    Hi everyone, Been searching through the forums and found various answers to possible issues I’m having but no luck - unless I am searching the wrong issue. My GG1000 went flat over a year ago, I brought several batteries for the replacement and all “went flat” as soon as I put them in, I...

    Hi all, I recently purchased an Aerospace Evo from a fellow WUS member. He said the battery was changed 2019 and should still be good for another 2 years and I have no reason to doubt him. Nevertheless, I was reading the manual thoroughly and when I got to the section explaining the EOL...

    Hi, I see that some have posted similar questions and received help. I have an everyday quartz wearer, an Laco Absolute 880203. It is time to replace the battery, but I cannot figure out how to open the caseback. I'd like to do this myself (shops are closed due to the pandemic). I have a cheap...

    Hi, I have two Aevig Corvid stealth black watches with dead batteries. One just came out of the box today (I was saving it for a special event for my son, he is off to Basic training next week and needed a watch). I have searched the web and cannot find any information on the replacement...
  10. Casio G-Shock
    Hello! I have a G-Shock GW-M5610BC that I use on a daily base and love very much. However, lately it's making some trouble: although the battery indicator is on high all the time, the watch turns off and just shows a blinking "CHG" symbol about a once or twice a week. From my experience, this...

    I just ordered a preowned Alpina AlpinerX and although the seller says it was working when shipped, it arrived with what seems to be a dead battery. I called the nearest authorized Alpina repair center and they quoted me $95 plus shipping to replace the battery and the insulator. When I asked...

    Hello ;=) I'm not sure where to post this. I bought a solar Pulsar PX3047X1 , it was a display model. After receiving the watch i saw that the second hand was moving twice instead of once per second. Not a good sign :( I then put the watch under light at night , for 2 or 3 nights maybe (crown...

    I found a women's watch that I bought several years ago in my house and put in a new battery. It worked for almost a week and then stopped. It re-started a few hours later. I like this watch and hope there is nothing wrong with it. Someone mentioned maybe something is dirty inside? Your...

    Hi there! I'm not really sure if I should post this here or in the technical section, but since I had this same question and I'm guessing others out there may have it too, I reckon it has a bit more visibility here. As with many others, I own a couple Seiko Kinetics. 5M42, 5J22, 7L22. And as...

    What would be the consensus, of a solar watch in a big rotation; so that, it would be sitting, getting fully discharged, sometimes even for months; then charged, used for a few days, then back into into sitting, for an undetermined amount of time. Figure, used maybe two to three times per...
  17. Casio G-Shock
    Hi, I have a 9-10 year old G-2300 (module 2184) that has been battered and beaten on four continents. About six years ago I left it in a dark drawer for probably over a year. It charged right up. About a year ago, it started to reset itself to the year 2000 and wipe all the other alarm...

    I already have a whoop-de-doo, radio controlled eco-drive perpetual, but I could not leave this dirt-cheap E768 on a table at Pasadena's Rose Bowl flea market. (Where abandoned timepieces go to die.) Yeah the crystal has some scratches, but I thought it would make an effective knock-around...

    I was trying to replace the battery on my wife's integral - it looks identical to picture attached (but it's not the same) When I opened it, I tried to push the battery up and the gold clip came flying off. I replaced the battery but the gold clip isn't in place, so the watch does not work. Do...

    Ladies and Gents: In anticipation of reviving and selling off my Core and Vector, battery replacements are required. I've already bought a dielectric gel and 2032s, so my question now is: Is there a video and/or instruction that you recommend for this procedure? I was thinking along the lines...
