Prevention Is Better Than Cure
that’s why we always maintain our high standards while performing a standard battery reseal, watch battery replacement on watches. Each watch undergoes the same meticulous procedure to prevent any potential damages or blockages. The following are the steps we take in our watch battery reseals:
Clean the case back before opening the watch to remove any dirt trapped between the grooves. Which if left and opened, can end up inside of the watch, causing a blockage or damage the mechanism.
Remove the gasket and thoroughly clean it along with the watch casing edges and the internal mechanism, ensuring no dirt or dust causes any harm to the internal mechanism.
Inspect the gasket thoroughly and promptly replace it if any imperfections are found. If the gasket is still in good condition, apply a coating of special watchmaker’s silicone grease to create a protective barrier that prevents any contaminants from entering the watch.
Carefully remove the old battery and check for any acid leaks that could potentially harm the quartz movement. Clean any acid residue or crystalized particles that may have formed.
Fit a new battery, inspect its movement and clean it, before securing the case-back on again.
Perform a pressure test to ensure the watch is resealed perfectly and is back to the manufacturer’s recommended standards.
Take special care in setting the correct time and date and test all its features like the stopwatch or alarms.
Finally, perform a quality control test before getting the RWR approval, indicating that it is fit to be returned to the customer.
