Watches - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues


Unlikely to be a CR2032. They are HUGE, size of a quarter. I wrote this Tip.

Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!

Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

Without model, difficult to find directions using the internet.

Perhaps you could contact a retail store to see if they can assist.

Take your Tissot to a jeweler who will open it, identify the battery type, and perhaps install a new one.

You have selected a wonderful watch... Heuer and TAG/Heuer should be gently wound by the motion of the human wrist and the falling of a centrally pivoting weight (there is no ideal direction).

AUTO-WIND function is NOT at all unique to your watch...

After a couple of CHEAPER "winders" failed me... and after I figured about 4 watches was more than enough to keep wound... I found the greatest BASIC watch winder... to run year over year (efficiently and quietly)

MTE watch winder (their very basic WTS-4).

Good luck: I WILL try to include the URL (see page 6)

Take your watch to a jeweler to have the battery identified and perhaps replaced.

You'll just have to find the manual somewhere. That's a chronometer, not just a watch. Much more complicated than a watch. Perhaps you should get a simpler watch.

https://picclick.co.uk/Pulsar-Ana-Digi-Gold-Tone-Watch-V031-5080-302636375150.html

Watch for sale dated November 1985.

Mens Pulsar Ana Digi Watch v031-5080 - Gold Tone - Spares or Repairs

Super condition gold tone ana digi watch
Build date Nov 1985 (see code on photos)

Very light wear, nice clean crystal, case and original Pulsar strap - see photos

Worked perfectly up until a few months ago - then 'had a moment', started flashing, then died and refused to fire up again - this watch is currently not working

Battery swapped out for a brand new Renata (incl) but still no joy

Watch has not been wet nor has there been any battery leakage - so unsure of the fix - or the reason for its inop

As such being sold as spares or repairs - if you have a spare movement to drop in then you would have very desirable, rare Pular (by Seiko) ana digi watch - a really nice clean piece from the '80's

Too good just to leave in a drawer so one for the collector, restorer/repairer or those looking for a very clean cased donor watch to drop in a working mech

Thanks and happy bidding
