Avoid Ray-O-Vac batteries like the plague! It's not just their watch batteries that leak; I've had regular C and D sized Ray-O-Vac batteries leak too.

Gary

Unfortunately, I don't think the repair shop that used the Ray-O-Vac batteries said what kind they were using. I'll keep a closer eye on this in the future.

I don't think I've ever seen a watch battery leak. I didn't know it was possible. Wow. I have some older watches and some newer ones too----sitting around with dead batteries in them. I'd better take a closer look.

I always get recommended Renata batteries. Apparently they're Swiss and used in most Swiss-made quartz watches. Still, I prefer Seiko batteries for a Seiko watch.

Gary

Today I shipped the watch to the Seiko service center in New Jersey. They offer a free written estimate of the needed repairs.

Gary:
Whatever happened with the repair?

Gary

Angelo,

They repaired it, but there were problems that required a subsequent repair. During this process they caused some cosmetic damage to the watch dial, which is a shame.

Angelo

Wow, the damage is a bummer. They should have done something to compensate you for that---reducing the cost of the repairs for example.

Gary

Yes, they should have. I'll think twice before sending watches to Seiko for repair in the future.
