Things to Consider When Replacing Watch Battery

Watch battery replacement can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes depending on watches and a lot of people think of it as 'I'll just find any watch repair store offering lower prices to have my watch battery replaced.' Sure, who doesn't like paying lower prices? But have you taken a moment to think about following?

  • Is my watch being shipped off to somewhere?

  • How experienced is the technician replacing my watch battery or fixing my watch?

  • Will they put in a new gasket?

  • Will they do water pressure test?

If you have a brand watch like Tag Heuer, Rolex, Ebel, Cartier, Tiffany, Piaget, or Michelle Diamond, you should definitely be asking those questions before you hand off your $15k watch to someone at a store.

Some customers ask us why we charge more than the kiosks down the aisle inside the Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland. And we tell them that their watch is simply in better hands and better protected with us at Jewelry Corner.

One, we have our own master technician, Mr.Han, on-site who has over 30 years of experience handling brand watches and jewelry. All the work is done inside our store without shipping your precious watch to off-site.

Two, we provide one-year warranty. If for any reason the battery dies within one year, bring it back and we'll replace it for free.

Three, we provide a new gasket as part of battery replacement. Using an old gasket or not replacing with a new one when your watch is opened sometimes allows water to sip in over a period of time. We have seen a plenty of customers who went for lower priced battery replacement only to have their watch damaged six month or one year later.

Four, we do a thorough water pressure testing to ensure that your watch is protected from water.

Lastly, our watch batteries have shorter shelf-life because we do so many of it throughout the year. Less time sitting on shelf means more time in your watch. Take a look at this post and check out how many batteries we replaced in last two years.

We know how important and precious your watch can be to you. So protect it with our premium watch battery replacement service and let us help you maintain and keep it forever.
