Why are watch batteries so hard to find?

SPONSORED

 

Have you searched high and low to find a new battery for your watch, to no avail?

Getting a new battery for your watch is not as easy as it used to be. Many corporate owned big box stores no longer sell watch batteries. And many that do sell inferior quality batteries that don’t last, or they won’t install the battery for you.

Some that do install watch batteries haven’t invested in properly training their sales clerks or providing them with the proper specialized tools needed for battery replacement. Consequently, they often end up breaking or scratching the watch crystal, scratching the case back, or worse, damaging the watch movement inside. Many can’t even put the watch back together again,

Because many stores don't want to be responsible for damages, they no longer carry watch batteries.

In other cases, the jewelers that are trained in watch repair and have the proper tools have retired and younger jewelers may not have the interest in handling watch batteries, so they send them out for repair, where you have no idea what condition in which your watch will be returned to you, if at all, or what kind of battery will be installed.

Ordering a battery online is always chancy. Do you know what kind you need, and is it a quality battery? And you have to have a specialized tool to open your watch to install the battery, increasing your chances of damaging your watch.
