Battery for a Ladies Pulsar Quartz, V783-x003


Recommended Posts

My wife owns 2 of the Ladies Pulsar Quartz,model V783-X003 watches and neither is working. Would someone know where I can 1) obtain manual? Digital is fine, and 2)anyone know what battery this model takes?

This model has a screw down watch back with notches.  I’d rather get the batteries first beforeopenimg the case back

It might be a good idea to open up the case back and have a look at the condition inside first. If the old battery has leaked until it's a mess inside, then you will have to make the difficult decision of whether it's worth repairing.

Good luck.

Hello HectorLooi,

Im glad you posted this recommendation, and I followed up by opening the case back on both watches.  The watch with  number 3D0440 had a Seiko battery in it and it was the SR621SW.  I opened the other watch which had case number 270330 and I was surprised that the battery installed was a Renata 377.  

So I ordered the Energizer 364/363 on Amazon and the package came about an hour and a half ago.  After eating supper I replaced both batteries and both watches are working again!  The diameter of the SR621SW, the Enegizer 364/363 and the Renata 377 are all the same, but the thicknesses vary.  The SR621SW and the Energizer 364/363 show thickness of 2.15 mm, but the Renata 377 2.6 mm.  I'm not sure if that varies but I'm glad to get a close replacement for the SR621SW that has the same thickness.

All three batteries spec sheets show 1.55 for Voltage.

I've now repaired a total of 7 watchs (all electronic) since joining Watch Repair talk.  Two may be beyond repair.  I took my Dad's WW2 Jaeger-LeCoultre E159 P478 Military Circa 1945 watch to an authorized seller and repair place near my house.  It's now in Switzerland being repaired.  It think that would have been "A Bridge Too Far" given my lack of knowledge, but these forums a great with helpful people. 

I have a third watch that's my wife's (a Seiko 1NO1-0CS0, case # 471682) to do and the battery will arrive Wednesday.

Thanks HectorLooi!

    • Ladies and gents, I found the most awesome old gold watch chain!  It has spring links!  I am always so careful with my antique pocket watches, and still fear to drop them, even while on a chain. I've re-staffed a number of balance wheels that no doubt suffered a similar fate. But this chain has lessened that fear somewhat.  So my "watch of today" was my beautiful Elgin 339 clipped to this chain.
    • For me, there’s no binary yes/no answer to this. It really is a matter of feel, experience, inspection under magnification, the age of the movement and what a replacement costs vs invested effort to “revive” it that all play a role determining the answer above. For an Omega 56x series reverser wheel you’ll spend more time trying to revive a reverser (which, by the way is also much more serviceable, but also harder and more expensive to find a replacement for) than you would an a Sellita SW200 where replacements are cheap and easy to find.
    • That's what I did after my Pearl machine stopped working. I've run about 5 watches through it so far and get results as expected. One interesting note is that their customer service says the machine comes with a 2 year warranty but that is not indicated on the website and when asked via email they are unable to provide a copy of the warranty, which I believe runs counter to US federal law 🤷‍♂️  Luckily for me the service center they use for repairs is local to me so if I ever do need to have it serviced I won't have to ship it in its HUGE box.
    • @JohnR725I live in a “3rd world” country (South Africa) and even here you can’t make a middle class living charging $120 to service a watch. I make many times that spending that same amount of time in my day job. But quote the average someone $200 to service their inherited vintage Omega (that stopped working 20 years ago) and you’re told you’re effing mad. This is why watchmaking is dead as a profession in modern times; everyone wants that cool mechanical watch, no one considers what it costs to maintain it. A wrist watch is no longer an essential tool, it’s novelty jewellery. So I do it as a hobby, a make a few videos and I fix broken things. If this hobby can make a little money to at least contribute to its vast expenses then that’s a bonus. I have many other hobbies that are just money pits, so there’s at least that. Speaking of making videos: there’s a lot of criticism being levelled at YouTube watchmakers, either because they don’t show enough detail, or that they talk too much, or that they’re hacks, or whatever other negative thing you can imagine. But these YouTube watchmakers have done more to expose watchmaking to the average Joe than what any of the professional watchmaking institutions have ever done. Professional watchmakers scoff at these “hacks” in their comment sections but fail to see how these YouTubers create interest in the average Joe and turn them into enthusiasts. Anyway, enough rambling from me…
    • This Suizo 1950s AS1361N 10 micron gold plated Automatic got an outing today. It is a gents watch, but is quite a diminutive piece (as was typical for the time). It is also very well engineered. The plating has a few wear marks, but other than that it is looking pretty good for its age. There is one minor discrepancy though. The dial states 25 jewels but the rotor says 21 jewels. Oh well, I guess nobody's perfect. It got a new crystal as the old one had resisted my best polishing efforts, but still wasn't up to scratch. I also treated it to a period correct 17mm dark green leather band from a job lot of 1950s or 1960s straps I picket up recently.  Before you ask, no, I am not responsible for all of those scratches on the rotor, they were there long before I got my hands on it. Suizo is almost certainly a Achille Hirsch brand.
