A little help with a battery for a watch?
Posted by: DP
Date: November 10, 2023 05:18PM
I was given one of these:

[www.amazon.com]

The person doesn’t want to bother getting a new battery so she said that if I wanted to get a battery I could have it but for the life of me I can’t find out what battery it uses. Searches show sites that will replace it or show batteries for John Deere tractors!

I guess a question posed as, “What battery is used in a Penguin OP-3010 watch?” is somehow not understandable...

Take it to a jeweler, have them open it up, and see what it needs?

The two options are...

Open the back of the watch and pull out the battery to match it.

(Get the appropriate tool if you don't already have it. Do not try to open the back of a nice watch without the right tool.)

Or...

Do what 99% of the population does in that situation and bring it to a jeweler for a replacement. Nice thing about that: They'll warranty the new battery, and if you need the watch cleaned or want the glass/crystal-polished, they can take care of that stuff, too.

Also, if the watch is “water resistant” you have to have a special tool to reseat the seal.
Ask me how I know that. smiling smiley

"Defending your own life when in immediate danger to me is a basic right of each person. " Lemon Drop 11/17/2023 03:10 pm

Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) Private citizens have the right under the Second Amendment to possess an ordinary type of weapon and use it for lawful, historically established situations such as self-defense in a home, even when there is no relationship to a local militia.

"The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept, and wording of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every major commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification, indicates that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner." Right to Keep and Bear Arms: Report of the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, Ninety-seventh Congress, Second Session. U.S. Government Printing Office. 1982. Digitized September 30, 2008.

From the NYSRPA v Bruen "Today, we decline to adopt that two-part approach. . . . Despite the popularity of this two-step approach, it is one step too many. Step one of the predominant framework is broadly consistent with Heller, which demands a test rooted in the Second Amendment's text, as informed by history."

Sorry, I wasn't clear. There was no battery in it. I was given the watch because the owner didn't want to mess with it.

I'll check it out in the morning. Thx, all.

Ask me how I know tha

Ha! But I won't be wearing it in the water. I have my 1994 TAG Heuer for that...

Looking at the web site it appears they sell general clothing items and accessories, this is not a watch company. Who knows who made the watch for them.

Take it to a shop and they can figure it out or try different batteries until they find one that fits.

Or there may be a marking on the inside.

When you figure out the size, you can get them on eBay or Amazon.

You might be able to measure the battery space to figure out the size of the battery.

I thought that might be the case but the only printing inside is “no jewels”, “unadjusted”, and “Miyota Co
2036 Japan”, which I will investigate.

Lots of batteries in that size that fits the space.

Has anyone here used watchgnome.com for battery replacements? They advertise that thy will do it, inspect and reseal a watch sent into them. Rates are $24 if you send it and includes shipping back or $34 and they will send you a padded watch box to send it in. Shipping both ways included with that payment - [watchgnome.com].

I have an old Seiko I may get cleaned and renew the battery in it.

Nice find.

I'm a bit wary of ordering batteries from AMZ.

There's almost always complaints of counterfeits, but I've been lucky so far.
