There are electronic watches that do not work with a conventional battery and need a change of solar or kinetic accumulator. Brands such as Seiko, Citizen and Casio, among others, contribute directly to caring for the environment by creating rechargeable watches with solar panels or with the natural movement of the wrist. We do not need to be in the sun or moving all day so that we can use these watches normally. A single full charge will be enough for the watch to be stored in a drawer for several months without stopping working.

When do I know that I need a change of solar or kinetic accumulator?

When a watch with a battery stops or the second hand moves in jumps of two or more seconds, it is because the battery voltage is low. But first we have to make sure if the accumulator is damaged or simply discharged.
To do this, look at your watch:

If it is solar charging, put it under a light source for several hours to charge it.

If the watch is self-winding, hold it in your hand and rock the watch in regular movements from right to left about thirty times.

Finally, if after doing these checks, you notice that it continues to stop or that the second hand moves in steps of two or three seconds and the watch is more than seven years old, it is time to replace the old battery with a new one and recycle the old one.

If it is a charging system and not a battery, why do you have to replace it?

The accumulator of a watch acts like the battery of a mobile phone: it charges and as it is used it discharges. These charging cycles in the batteries are not infinite, so after a few years we have to change the accumulator of the watch for a new one. It must be taken into account that watches with accumulators, unlike those with conventional batteries, go through the workshop more sporadically, therefore it is highly recommended to do a general inspection of the watch to ensure its hermeticism.
Hands to work with the change of accumulator

To begin with, we do a visual examination of the watch to see its general condition. In this case, the first thing we can see is how deteriorated the glass is, so we are going to change it.

Once the movement is separated from the armis, we observe the accumulated dirt. This dirt is normal for a watch used daily.

Next, we continue to disassemble the pushers of the case to be able to clean it in depth and then be able to lubricate them correctly.

Now that we have everything disassembled, while we change the accumulator, we introduce it into the ultrasonic machine, which, with the vibration action and exclusive cleaning products for watchmaking, removes all traces of dirt.

Here is the movement of this Citizen with the old accumulator removed, and the new one ready to be mounted. Of course we recycle the old accumulator. Although visually it looks like a conventional battery, internally it is composed of a completely different rechargeable structure and externally they have fixed connections that vary depending on the watch model for which it is manufactured.

Now once assembled and the buttons lubricated, we will place the new glass and proceed to put its new sealing gaskets.

Finally we close it in the press, we put it in the vacuum gauge to check that the watch passes the hermetic test and we take out the ticket for the client.

After all the work, this is how it turned out:

In conclusion, these watches are respectful of the environment, they do not require a frequent battery change like a conventional watch. That is why you should not forget to check it at each accumulator change.

If you have a watch that needs a change of solar or kinetic accumulator, but you don’t know how much it might cost or how you can do it, leave me your message below, I’ll receive it right away and we’ll talk about it.
