Battery / Movement for a Zeitner Aquagraph

Question

Hi.  I'm new to the forum.  I have a modest collection of watches that we've bought over the years.  One is a Zeitner Aquagraph that was opened up to replace the battery, which was subsequently lost before the replacement battery was ordered.  The movement appears to have the name Ronda on it and looks gold plated.  What I need to know is what size battery this takes and if that's not the problem, is the movement worth replacing?   Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

We need to see the movement or for you to get the number off of it. If it has a black frame the number will be on the frame, otherwise it will be in tiny numbers on the plate. Most of them are from the 500 family and use a 371 battery. Very common battery for Ronda’s.

Thanks.  definitely 715.  I've seen these movements on ebay for about £5 or £6.  Is that right, are they that cheap?  I saw the same watch sell for about £25, so it's obviously not worth spending a lot on, but I'd rather repair it even if I spend a disproportionate amount of time on it.  I assume it's not difficult to remove the wider?      Thanks again.

    • Lol that's the problem JohnHutchins....I do not want to have to take apart this watch just to replace a capacitor, especially with those annoying/fragile plastic gears. Not worth the effort for a $60 job. I feel like Citizen made it like this in order to force customers to send their watch in for a $200 service that takes 6 months (in which they will just rip the stem out and replace the entire movement). Shame. You might be right though, Pip, maybe there's been some sort of manufacturing flaw or unseated piece that is preventing the stem from coming out. Shit does happen.
    • Maybe you have a broken or unseated piece meaning the stem removal lever doesn’t move into position when you pull the stem out. Shit happens! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
    • A vintage Dundee lady tonight. I doubt if this is the smallest Timex watch ever made, but it is certainly fairly dinky. Serviced and polished, but the strap that was on it is done, and I have no 10mm straps, so I'll need to get one. I'm unsure of the age, if any of the experts know, do tell.  Other than a very light crop of green fungus on the strap pins (fresh pins fitted) and the dead strap it was fairly tidy and polished up rather nicely. It is managing a fairly respectable swing of 265 degrees and sitting slightly fast at +70 at the moment, so I'll let it settle overnight and finish it up tomorrow.
    • Seems like you are getting to the point where you have to make a decision - do I disassemble the watch completely in order to get the movement out of the case?   
    • Pip - yeah I've also taken a look at the diagram, but thats the assembly from the underside of the movement. And if you look at the dashes, the set lever ends up being set into a place farther up towards the center, which can't be reached from the dial side. This thing is a straight up anomaly.
