Replace Your Own Watch Batteries



I bought an inexpensive watch tool kit from Amazon, plus a huge bunch of batteries. I've never attempted changing my own before, but in my area, replacements are expensive ($10-15 each). I just changed three batteries and the total was $5. I'm thrilled and will save a bundle w/my collection.

  • This is such a GREAT idea! Thanks! Also, what I do with my watches, since I have several different ones, is to pull out the 'wind' stem on the watch when it's not in use. That keeps the battery from making contact and it will last longer. So I just have to reset the watch whenever I wear it, but it really does make the battery last longer. - by JOYINHIM

  • works great but watch those lithium batteries-the more you touch them you drain them. - by DAISYLADY

    I did the same thing. I was surprised by how easy it is to change the batteries and so much cheaper. - by FOXY52
