How long do your watch batteries last?
At Excel Watch Repair, we're dedicated to using high-quality batteries. These ensure your timepiece is running efficiently for longer. We only use Renata batteries, a Swiss battery manufacturing company known for quality and high standards. After battery replacement, we'll proceed to seal it back up and water test it. Ideally, a professionally installed battery will last you from one to two years.
Most watch manufacturers recommend that you replace the watch battery every one to two years. However, batteries have a different life span depending on how old the watch is. As a watch ages, the watch will lose some efficiency and need more power to operate. We offer a warranty for 1 or 5 years depending on which battery service package you select.
Doesn't my watch remain water resistant forever?
No. Opening the watch often compromises its water resistance. This is why you should ensure only a professional opens and fixes your watch. Your watch's resistance to water lowers as the watch ages. External factors can cause the gaskets inside of the case, crystal and in the crown of the watch to deteriorate. This highlights the importance of water testing the watch after each repair. Excel Watch Repair will perform a water pressure test on every water resistant watch we receive unless otherwise instructed.
Do you offer pressure testing and resealing?
Yes! Water resistant watches are re-sealed back to the manufacturers specification and also pressure tested, resealing will insure your watch is resistant from any type of dust and moisture. Excel Watch Repair is equipped with the latest technology and tools to ensure your watch gets the proper care and protection it needs to run like new. If your watch does not pass the pressure test, you will be notified by one of our specialists and provided a detailed explanation.
Do you have a warranty on your watch batteries?
Yes, all watch battery service comes with a 1 year warranty or a 5 year warranty depending on what battery package service you select. If your watch stops during this period (and the battery is the cause) we will email you a prepaid label and replace it for you, free of charge.
