Watch battery replacement
The most commonly required watch repair is worth getting right.
We repair all watches in our Aberdeen City centre workshop and we are committed to getting the most out of every battery fitted.
Our batteries are guaranteed for 18 months when they are included in any watch repair we complete. Every watch repair by us is guaranteed and the lifetime of the battery is assured to be optimal for your watch with our expert care.
A concern for some watch repairers and providers of professional watch servicing is the potential for an aged watch battery to leak its harmful contents into the watch.
If this happens the watch's circuit is always the first hit and replacing circuits unnecessarily is not a watch repair we want to see.
This can be caused by a depleted watch battery being left unchanged for too long, though our experience in repairs has shown that the manufacturer of the battery is a big contributor.
We've carefully researched the manufacturers of batteries available to fit into your watches and chosen Murata (Sony) who are proven to be safest against leaking. We've been using them for over 10 years in our watch repairs and we know their extra long lifetime batteries help us provide the most professional watch services in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire.
As an added benefit of our 18 month guarantee, if your watch “winds up” needing a full service and still has a guarantee on the battery, we will deduct the amount you paid for our battery from the cost of the full service. This is because a full service to a quartz watch will include a renewed battery and our customers should not need to pay for anything twice in the same guarantee period. Whether you’ve received this price reduction or not, we will replace the battery in every watch service as we’d like to see watches come back as infrequently as possible.
