In the mean time do not try to wind the watch or set the date or time as this may cause damage to the watch.
If your battery operated watch stops telling time. We will first inspect the movement and the battery functionality as sometimes the battery itself is not the sole problem. Based on our watchmakers findings we will inform you of the service that is needed to properly repair your timepiece.
