Watch Battery Replacement

It has become harder and harder to find a reliable, inexpensive place to replace a watch battery. Many large jewelers and retail stores with jewelry departments no longer offer watch battery replacement services. In fact, they usually refer their customers to The Jewelry Center!

Watch Brands We Service

Our Swiss-trained repair experts have years of experience properly handling and servicing luxury timepieces to everyday favorites. We service all brands including Armitron, Casio, Citizen, Fossil, Gucci, Invicta, Movado, Michael Kors, Nixon, Ohsen, Omega, Seiko, Skagen, Swiss Army, Timex, and many more! No smart watches. See the full list of brands we repair.

Why Choose Us for Battery Replacement Services?

We’ve been replacing dead batteries for decades, and we have seen it all. Our repair specialists have worked on all watch brands, both common and uncommon. We even keep the thousands of coin cells in glass jars around the store to show guests how many we’ve changed over the years! If you don’t want to risk damaging your watch while trying to remove the battery, just bring it (or mail it) to the experts instead. Our watch battery replacement costs less than a kit, and it comes with the peace of mind that your watches will be properly taken care of. 

How Long Does The Battery Replacement Service Take?

If you bring your watches in store, we replace them while you wait! If you mail in your watches, the entire process takes about a week. Usually we change the batteries as soon as we receive them in the store. Then we monitor them overnight to make sure they are functioning correctly, and ship them back the next day. We are closed on Sundays and Mondays, so the wait mostly depends on when we receive the watches and the time it takes to mail. We aim to provide the fastest turnaround time you’ll find, both in-store or online!

In Store Watch Battery Installations

If you stop in to one of our Southeastern Wisconsin locations, our experienced watchmakers will replace your batteries while you wait. The entire process takes just a few minutes. Bring in one, or bring in one hundred! The price on our watch battery replacements start at $3.99.

Because we’re not located in a mall, parking around our stores is always available. If you are in a hurry, you will be able to run in and out in no time! No appointment is necessary to replace a battery, so feel free to stop in at any time.

Watch Repair by Mail

Who Replaces My Watch Battery?

When you bring or mail us your watches, our on-site jewelry repair experts will be the ones handling and servicing your timepieces. Our team is experienced and trained to handle all brands of watches (excluding smart watches). We change thousands of batteries every year, and some days we replace over 100 batteries!

Do You Provide Other Watch Repair Services?

Absolutely, if you have a broken timepiece that needs a watch repair, our repair experts can fix it. If you would like to have a watch pressure tested to test its water resistance, we have just the tools to do so. All of our repairs and replacements are done in-house, and your jewelry will not leave our store or be shipped out to another party. We pride ourselves on providing quality repairs at the best price.

When Do I Get My Watch Back After a Battery Replacement?

If you stop into one of our stores, we change batteries out while you wait. Usually the whole process just takes a few minutes depending on the amount of watches you would like serviced. If you are mailing in your watches, the entire process from start to finish takes about a week. Most of the time we are able to change the batteries as soon as we receive them in the mail. Then we ship them back that same day. So the wait generally depends on the time it takes to mail.
