Dug out a couple watches for batteries...............
« on: May 07, 2020, 08:56:51 AM »
With all of this being pretty much confined to my home and shop and having run out of things to inventory I decided to go through my accumulation of battery operated watches and maybe replace some batteries and fire up a couple.Here are some that I have got working again:
The first three pictures show a watch that has a protective cover that can be deployed by pulling up on the open mark which raises the whole assembly and allows it to be flipped over to expose the watch and then re-fastened.
The last one is marked Freestyle and has a day;date,and 24 hour register.
All cheap watches but fine for banging around in the shop.

A couple more for battery replacement:
A Fossil Speedway chronograph.I originally bought this at a yard sale for $2! Cost more for the battery to repair it.
Another is a Diesel 1306.Nice watch that I had to make 3 links for it in order for it to fit my wrist.

I was into Gshocks but realized tending to batteries was something I was not into.  I gave nearly all away but a couple.  The ones I kept were solar and one that has been amazing battery wise. 

Nice watches BTW.

Never saw a watch like that first one! Very cool!

Since I discovered Tough Solars, I pretty much stopped looking at other battery models. Automatic and manual winding are ok for me, too. I just hate having to replace batteries on watches...
