Thread: Assistance please with TAG battery change

    Assistance please with TAG battery change

    Iíve had this TAG for over 15 years and it gets worn to the gym and when Iím hiking.

    Battery has gone. TAG want to service it for £££, and it doesnít warrant it. One of the ďWatch repair boothsĒ in the Arndale want £75 and I never like the look of those places

    Anyone on here capable/willing to assist. Iím willing to pay a reasonable fee/postage etc.

    Assistance please with TAG battery change

    Donít you fancy having a go yourself? Iíve just done a Tag Chronograph with the most basic tool kit. Itís really easy. I even reset all the hands back to zero after a quick google. Battery cost me around £1.50 off Amazon, silicone grease about £3.00. Honestly itís so easy.

    This one I did...



    Please feel free to ask any questions

    Haha. You donít know me.
    My efforts at DIY - visit B&Q, get wrong kit so go back to B&Q, botch job, swear, make it worse .... ring a man who knows what heís doing.

    So now we just ring the man who knows !

    Not true. My wifeís watch is a TAG and quartz. Movement servicing may be different but battery change and seal is no problem for him if you donít want to do it yourself.

    If you're happy to post the watch then there are a number of independents on here who could help.

    Duncan (the watch bloke) will sort it with new seals, battery and pressure test for not very much.

    As an aside, you've done tremendously well to get 15 years out of a watch battery

    I`ll help with this one, should be a quickie unless it needs servicing, which is quite possible after 15years.

    Officially I`m taking no jobs on for the next several months owing to other commitments/activities (house move-related). I`m also having minor knee surgery next week, hopefully it won't set me back too much, and if it's successful I`ll start running again.

    £5 at The Old Watch Shop in Southport, but you'll have to make an appointment.

    I know, blatant profiteering.
