  1. Hi there, I have this old Rado Florence Leather Band Dress Watch that I would like to replace the battery on. I used to have this done by Watch Repair people but now it seems to be outrageously expensive. Can somebody give me instructions on how to do it. I've replaced batteries on press in back caps and screw in caps but not really sure with this one. Thank you and sure would appreciate the help. Here's a pic.
  2. Got quite a peculiar one at the moment, and it's something that I've never personally encountered before. The clients watch is an Armani AR5905; he thought he needed a new battery and so here I am, Upon taking the case-back off and placing a new battery in, I heard the circuit do the all so familiar whirring noise like it was springing back to life, however when I flipped it over it wasn't ticking. So I pulled the battery out and again put it back in, but what I noticed was that the whirring noise was only happening when the battery was halfway seated and thus not making full c
  3. Dear all, It's my first post here, please excuse if I post to the wrong sub-forum. I own a small collection of quartz and automatic watches and at least do most of the usual service myself. A friend of mine gave me an old watch she likes and asked me if I can change the battery. She told me it's around 25 years old and cheap but she likes the dial. It was a present by a french bank she worked for. All my watches are either press or screw down backs and I have never seen a watch like this. It seems that the only possible way to open the watch is the small plastic notch on th
  4. Hello to all, My name is Ash (from NZ). Im a watch enthusiast and trying to learn more about Horology. I have been picking odd watch repair jobs here and there and self-learning. Firstly, thanks a lot to Mark Lovick for uploading fantastic videos on youtube that are so simple to follow. Keep up the great work Question - is there a way to diagnose quartz watch circuit using those test probes (that have an LED inbuilt) or perhaps using a multi-meter? For some watch movements such as Myota 2035, it makes sense to replace the whole movement. In other cases, it make sense to rep
  5. I need to replace the battery for my late grandfather's Omega Constellation Perpetual Calendar (1551/861). I have probably spent 6 hours searching the internet to identify which battery I need, and I have been completely unsuccessful. Would anybody happen to know what battery I would need, or at least where on the internet I might be able to identify this information? Thank you so very much.
  6. Hi Watchmakers/repairers, I live in New Zealand, am new to this forum, and my main experience with watches is changing batteries for my & my wife’s watches, and as you will see, I don’t know the technical terms, etc. My wife has a Lorus women’s quartz watch with V501-X201 written on the back (see photos attached from after I took it apart, removed the crown+stem, then reattached it after taking the main workings out of the case). In recent years the batteries (Maxell SR626SW (AKA 377) meant to be 1.55V) have been failing after only a few months, then I’d take them out, check
  7. I received this watch as a gift and for some reason it's no longer working. Is that plastic casing a space for another battery or is that other battery (small) defective? Thanks for the help.
  8. Hello all, With my success (through this forum's help) on my classic Rado, I've decided to try another battery replacement on what I believe is a more complicated watch. I've not worn this watch for decades due to outrageous price for battery replacement. However, with this forum I hope I can get some help on how to do this properly. There are four screws on each corner of the backing. I believe the screws are holding the top case with the glass or crystal thus access is through the crystal. However, if this is the case how do you remove the winder's crown to access the back of the moveme
  9. A quick step-by-step tutorial on how to replace the battery on a TAG Heuer Aquaracer. This watch belongs to a good friend, and it is in need of a battery replacement. Step 1: Remove the screw on case back. The tools I am using are a three-pins Jaxa case opener and a case holder. At first, I try to open the case-back just with the watch mounted on the case holder. But the case-back is very tightly screwed on (this is a diver watch with 300m waterproof). In the end, I secure the the case holder on a mounted bench vice to free both of my hands to open the case-back. I also find that us
