Full Answer

People who do not have a local outlet for getting battery watches replaced may find outlets through online sites. Of course, this means sending the watch through the post and hoping it does not sustain any other damage during the shipping and handling process. However, this also means allowing a trained professional to replace the battery properly and efficiently.

Whether working with a local service center or another authorized dealer, this dealer must offer quality service as well as a warranty to make sure the battery works for at least a specified amount of time. Some of these services also require a form that must be submitted with the watch in order to guarantee services. When using a non-local service, checking for reviews and credentials helps determine the best service to fix the watch. Otherwise, people with experience working with Swiss Army watches may replace their own batteries with no worries of damaging their watches.
