In line with government advice, we will now be operating with a skeleton staff to deal with emergencies.
If you have repairs you can continue to send these to us, rest assured they will be stored in a safe place and processed in due course.
There will inevitably be delays to our usual services for which we sincerely apologise, however as soon as restrictions are lifted, we will be back to normal operations.
A quartz timepiece has a 1.55 Volt silver-oxide battery that is specially designed for watches. It will last approximately 12 – 18 months under normal use.
The seconds hand on many models will start to move haltingly in 4-second increments when the battery is almost exhausted, signalling the need to have it replaced. Battery replacement: It is important to use only the replacement battery recommended by SWICO. Take or send your watch brands Authorized Service Centre to have battery changed.
