Watch Batteries

Having served the local community for over 40 years, Nettletons Jewellers have lots of experiencing servicing watches, replacing batteries, changing straps and carrying out general maintenance on luxury watches and time pieces.

During this time, we have seen all sorts of watches, and our portfolio contains some of the most luxurious watch brands available. From Tag Heuer to Cartier, Raymond Weil or BOSS we’ve seen a wide range of styles and models. There is seldom a watch that we have not seen before; meaning you can rest assured that your watch is in good hands and your battery replacement will be carried out efficiently. If you need a Tag Heuer watch battery, Cartier watch battery or a watch battery for any other brand for that matter, Nettletons Jewellers is the place to come. Based in the historic market town of Clitheroe, our shop is conveniently placed near the a59 and access from Lancashire, Yorkshire, Merseyside and beyond making a visit remarkably easy.

If your quartz piece has stopped working without any obvious cause, its source of power may well be the issue; occasionally watches can require a service as opposed to a battery, we will advise you of this once we have tested your watch.

If you are unsure of the work your watch requires, Nettleton’s experienced experts are on-hand to help you. We can examine your watch before recommending the next steps.

Battery and re seal- Pressure testing and water resistance

Water resistant watches are manufactured and tested in such a way that they can withstand contact with water, be it in the shower or deep under water. Watches have different levels of water resistance, if you refer to the case back of your watch this will advise you on the amount of pressure under water you watch can with stand.

Supposing that you use your watch in water we recommend that you have your watch resealed and pressure tested whilst having the battery changed.

How long will a battery replacement take?

We replace watch batteries in-store as a while-you-wait service; we stock an array of watch batteries allowing us to change your watch battery quickly and efficiently. However, please be aware that should your watch need re-sealing to ensure it is water resistant, can take up to two weeks.

How long should a watch battery last?

We use both Renata and Rayovac watch batteries which are a high-quality Swiss made watch batteries recommended by many professionals in the watch industry. All of our watch battery replacements come with a 12 month guarantee, should your battery stop within this time frame we will replace it for you.

Nonetheless, if there is an underlying fault and your watch requires a service, this is not covered within the warranty. Simply call into the shop, and our watch expert will be able to test your battery and advise you on the condition of your time piece and give a professional opinion whether your watch needs a service.

What size watch battery do I need?

The size of watch batteries varies dependent upon the watch itself, not only this but the code for the required battery size differs dependent upon the brand of watch battery. For this reason we recommend you visit us in store and allow our watch specialist to assess your watch to find the correct size watch battery.

How much is a watch battery replacement?

Each timepiece is individual and requires different levels of care and intricacy, particularly with more prestigious timepieces; for this reason we are unable to recommend a set price for a battery replacement. However, we specialise in providing the right battery at the right price. Call into our shop in Clitheroe and meet our experienced team, or give contact us with your query to receive further information. We will get your watch back up and running again as it should.
