  1. Aerospace Evo EOL Indicator

    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...

  5. GW-M5610BC looses charge - change battery?

    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...

    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...

    Seiko
    Hello ;=) I'm not sure where to post this. I bought a solar Pulsar PX3047X1 , it was a display model.

  10. Seiko Kinetics - converting to regular quartz - using regular non-rechargeable batteries

    Seiko
    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...
  11. Solar Watch in a Big Rotation

    Public Forum
    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...

    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...
  13. Fitting an MT 920 into a Citizen E768 Perpetual

    Seiko
    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...

    Suunto
    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...
  16. Coin battery capacity compared - for all of us NON-SOLAR guys out there :)

    Casio G-Shock
    My DW-5000SL has entered its 8th year on its factory battery, and although it doesn't show any signs of weakness, I decided to check if there is any difference between manufacturers when it comes to capacity to be ready when the time comes to replace it!! After some research I decided to make a...

    Watchmaking, How To's and Technical Resources
    Hello all, I have inherited a Seiko watch with a 7N43C calibre movement. The day and date used to change, as expected, sometime between about midnight and 2a.m. However, since I had the battery replaced, the date changes around 4a.m. and the day finishes changing around 7a.m. The lad who...

    Public Forum
    Want to see what people are wearing. Do you prefer a hand wind/automatic what has to be wound every day or so? Do you prefer a quartz / battery powered watch? Or do you prefer a solar/kinetic/spring movement? I'm not into autos or hand wind as I don't have that much time to spend on a watch...
