Your H. Goose watch is always on your wrist, and it goes wherever you do. In fact, with your busy schedule you depend on your Saluda Field Watch to be on time, and because it’s battery powered, it is always on time... except for when the battery runs out.
The bad news is batteries are like whiskey bottles, when one’s empty, you just have to get another. But like taking smooth, mellow sips can keep the whiskey flowing longer, there are two easy steps you can take to extend your watch’s battery life.
If you’re like most watch fanatics, you might have read about removing the battery as a way of extending its life. H. Goose doesn’t recommend doing this, because it is very difficult to access the battery without a special tool. Chances are high you’ll damage your watch instead.
Many experts suggest cleaning the contact straps touching the positive and negative sides of the battery when you replace it. But again, you need to know what you’re doing so as not to damage your timepiece. Better yet, send your Saluda Field Watch back to us so we can professionally service and clean it. You won’t have to fuss with the details, and you’ll have peace of mind in knowing your watch will enjoy a longer life.
By following these simple steps, you’ll be able to extend your battery life and continue to benefit from the convenience of your Saluda Field Watch for years with little to no maintenance. In a quartz watch, new batteries can last up to five years before being replaced. H. Goose watch movements are rated at 5+ years. However, it’s important that you don’t try to use the same battery for too long and risk leakage, which could damage the other components.
H. Goose makes quality watches designed to take abuse, so there’s nothing weak about them. (Trust us, we’ve put them to the test!) They’re meant to be worn in the woods, at a restaurant, and in the field. If you look after yours, it will serve you for years to come.
