A few watch companies...Bulova being one of them used to give a 10 year warranty but I dont know of any batteries that actually last 10 years! The average life of a 1.5 volt silver oxide battery is 2-3 years (sometimes a smidge longer) depending on the age and condition of the watch. A 3 volt lithium battery will get on average 3-4 years.

Im guessing that your battery is probably dead! :-)

My son gave me a Anne Kline watch a year ago but it has stopped running. I changed the battery twice but it still runs some and than stop. What do I need to do?


Watch might need a superior or best quality battery that hasn't been in stock for long...

Few modern watches need a new battery every year and most in my experience will last at least a couple of years so the watch is probably faulty and it is a shame you didn't return it while it was under warranty.
A decent jeweller/horologist should be able to check this and advise you.

Ive got a Casio 2735 wva-105h watch that Ive had since 2004. Its Been 10 years and still havent needed to change the battery yet and still fully functional. Is it Solar or anything like that? How is i


Hi Paul

Yes this has a battery, it sounds like you are one of the lucky ones that hasnt needed to change it yet, there life span is approximatley 10 to 15 years before they need changing, so either yours is in the 15 year catagory or its comming up for a change...hope that helps

I have a Blue Angels Eco drive. Havent worn it more than few times in 4 years. Now i want to use it and it is dead. how to get it up and running?


I had the same issue. Solution is quite simple. You will need to buy a PAnasonic li-ion battery model MT920 (google it) have it opened and disconnect the battery and put the new one. There is a actual pin connector in the battery and it needs to be plugged in into the slot where the battery goes in. it is easy. The watch will work again and just remember to keep it under light conditions to fully load it. take care. Luiz

Does not run. does this watch have a battery in it?


There are two types power sources for watches. Automatic and battery.
Automatic needs to be either wound by the crown (winder on the side) or wound by the movement of the wrist while it is worn.
The battery powered is self explanatory.

Since you didn't include the model it's difficult to say for sure because Relic makes both automatics and battery powered watches. Although I can tell you is most automatics will clearly labeled. If your watch say automatic somewhere on the face or back you need to contact Relic for service because your watch has a 12 year warranty.

To prevent violating your warranty a jeweler should be the one who replaces the battery if it is battery power.
I included the link to Relic watches below for info on the warranty and instructions.
Hope this helps.

Hello: Watch stops , will not work unless


Most watch company's offer a 2 year warranty on the movement and it sounds like a problem with the movement. I recommend taking it back to the point of purchase with reciept if they can't look it up and most company's will remedy the problem at no cost to you (when it is that new).

Watch stopped running when not worn for days. turned crown 20 times per Raymond Weil manual, did not work.


Make sure you are turning the crown clockwise and stop winding when you feel the tension increase. Also, try wearing it for a day even if it is not runninr; the motion may be enough to get it going if it is an automatic.
There may be something more wrong with your watch.
If the RW is less than 2 years old you should be covered, they have one of the best warranties in the business.
If it needs repair and is older than 2 years, I would still send it to the RW repair center in NY to see what they can do.

Prague 49011G, automatic wind watch - stopped ticking


I also have a Prague automatic watch (not the same model) which I purchased in 10/06 and have had it repaired twice. If you purchased the watch new, a little white warranty paper should have accompanied it. If not, you might be out of luck. Anyhow, each Prague has a two year warranty. My warranty instructed me to send the original receipt, a check for $10 (for return shipping) and the watch to Croton Repair; 195 Anderson Avenue; Moonachie, NJ 07074. There of course is no phone number to call them. Make the check out to Croton Repair. The warranty also says they do not guarantee they will fix the watch, but they guarantee they'll send you the watch back if it cannot be repaired. It took about 5 weeks and my watch came back repaired. Unfortunately about 6 months later it broke again, same exact problem (no long self-winds, ticks or keeps time, my watch also has a diamond at each hour, two of which fell out)... I've seen a lot of the issues people are posting seem to be the automatic watches not working. Probably duds, the inner workings seem to be very sensitive.
