Watch Battery Replacement

Don't let a dead battery sideline your favorite quartz watches! At Sangamon Watches in Springfield Illinois, we offer quick and convenient battery replacements to keep your quartz movement watch running smoothly. But how often do you really need that battery replaced?

Understanding Your Quartz Watch Battery:

Unlike mechanical watches that rely on a wound spring for power, quartz watches utilize a small battery to create an electrical current. This current pulsates a tiny quartz crystal, causing it to vibrate at a precise frequency – that's what keeps your watch ticking accurately.

How Long Does a Battery Last?

The lifespan of a quartz watch battery depends on several factors, including the size and functionality of the watch. A simple timepiece might hold a charge for 2-3 years, while feature-rich watches with chronographs or luminous dials may require replacements every 1-2 years.

Signs Your Battery Needs Replacing:

A dead battery is the most obvious sign, but there can be subtle clues before it completely dies. These can include:

  • The watch starts losing time significantly.
  • The second hand movement becomes jerky or stops altogether.
  • Chronograph or alarm features malfunction.
