Seiko watch batteries

How long does it take to change the battery for a Seiko?

We fit batteries, reseal and pressure test Seiko watches and have them back on your wrist in 30 minutes or less.

How long will the battery last after fitting in my Seiko and is it guaranteed?

The resulting years each cell (battery) will last depends on the size/capacity, the circuit of the Seiko movement and potential push-back from the rest of the movement. What we guarantee is that you will get a minimum of 18 months before the next replacement even if your Seiko watch use the smallest cell size. This is down to our proficiency in battery fitting that achieves the greatest retaining of energy in the cells, and aided by our carefully chosen battery brand for use in Seiko and other watches.

Will my Seiko still be watertight afterwards?

Yes, our on-site reseal and pressure test covers all water resistance depths that Seiko watches are rated to. You will have peace of mind your repair is compliant with manufacturers’ standards and our equipment is accredited by Seiko for the repair procedure.

Should I get my Seiko serviced instead?

This depends on which service you’re after; if you’ve been advised your Seiko is due a partial service when the battery is running low then that is advised and that is actually the service we provide with every battery, reseal and pressure test. If it’s a full service that you’re after then we do provide these, though we would wait till we determine issues with your Seiko watch’s movement before advising that repair. Our on-site Seiko full services are often completed same day so you can still benefit from our quick turnaround time.

What if my Seiko is Kinetic or Solar powered?

These rechargeable type quartz movements use a capacitor instead of a regular cell. We professionally repair these watches and keep most capacitors in stock. Prices are far below the cost of sending away and our workshop local to Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire is conveniently located for quick turnarounds.
