  1. Casio G-Shock
    So…I haven’t read anything in this forum about this, but does anyone use the Power Save test feature to manually turn PS on?? What am I talking about? While browsing shockbase.org by member @xkonx , I saw among the hidden screens listed there is a test for Power Save, in the same functionality...

    Am I mistaken, or does Power Save only exist in solar powered G-Shocks? Why in the world would that be? Think about it....the reason we buy a solar watch (presumably) is to change the cell less. So for non-solar pieces, why don't they all have the Power Save feature too? My family has three...
  3. Seiko
    Hello, I’m new to posting but figured this is the best place for informed advice. I have a Seiko Perpetual Calendar 8F33-0029 that was my fathers work watch. The battery died years ago and all of the watch makers and repair shops in my area have told me they will not change the battery and set...
  4. Casio G-Shock
    I found this Casiotron 04-507 and for some reason, I think the high estimated shipping, it wasn't crowded by watchers on ebay. I ended up getting it for about $37 before shipping and about $66 after shipping! I'm thrilled with that! It came on this Casio bracelet that had the end links filed...
  5. Suunto
    Hello, I am owner of Suunto Traverse Alpha Stealth. This may sound weird, but now, in 2022, I still prefer classical, tactical Suunto like Traverse and Core, in favor of new models. However, after some time of use, I have noticed some performance drop in battery life, and I was wondering have...
  6. Longines
    Hi all, I tried to search and see if there was any video posted here on WUS that show what the Longines VHP end-of-life battery indicator looks like, but did not find anything. This specific watch was purchase on March 7, 2019 from a authorized distributor, and the EOL indicator started on...

    Hi My lunar pilot was bought new 2 years ago. It is running fine and I very rarely use the chrono, once every other month. How long does the battery last on these? While on the subject, any specific things to know when replacing one? (Wish they had made a solar version of this movement...)...

    I got this M800 a few weeks ago and I've loved it overall but I've had some doubts about the battery. There's a lot of details and I'm not exactly certain the battery was bad but I decided to change it anyhow. It's a ten year old watch and I can't be sure whether or how many times the battery...
  9. Seiko
    Hi all, I have replaced the battery and when using tweezers to reset the battery there was a buzz and the green hand started moving rapidly around the dial. I then took the tweezers away and nothing is moving. Now cannot even replicate the rapid green hand movement. Any suggestions or help would...

    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 🙂
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. Breitling
    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...
  16. Watchmaking
    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...
  19. 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...
  20. Frédérique Constant - Ateliers deMonaco - Alpina
    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...
