Watch Battery Replacement
Batteries Plus Bulbs is your source for a huge selection of watch batteries and expert installation services. Having replaced over 8 million watch batteries and counting, our team of trained associates has the knowledge, ability and tools to properly open your watch, test the existing battery and install a new cell to get it working again.
Before installing a new watch battery, we want to make sure everything else on the watch is in working order. Something as simple as the stem being pulled out may be the source of a watch not keeping time. We want to make sure that a new battery will solve the problem.
Each Batteries Plus Bulbs store is equipped with the tools to open and properly close fashion, chronograph, sports, quartz, and digital wrist watches. Whether you have a screw-off back, pressure fit snap-off back, hinged-back or bezel style case, we can help.

How long do watch batteries last?
Not all fine watches use batteries, but when they do, they should last for at least 2 years. However, just like cars or any other piece of machinery, there are several factors that affect the life of your battery:
- Whether your watch is digital or analog.
- The size of the battery.
- The functions your watch offers and how often you use them.
- How often you use the chronograph function (leaving it running will cause the battery life to decrease rapidly).
- Your watch being exposed to extreme temperatures for a prolonged period of time.
How do you fix a watch that stopped ticking?
We'll inspect your watch to determine whether a dead battery is causing the problem. If your battery needs replacing, we'll use our tools to properly open your watch, remove the dead battery and replace it with a new cell.
