    CR2032/DL2032 battery

    Got a question

    Got myself a new Duracell battery for my Core. On the packing , it says "DL32032/CR2032/ECR2032" but on the battery its stamped DL2032.
    I bought a wrong one , didn't i?

    I dont think so. Check the voltage and size... but its likely the same thing just a different manufacturer.

    I see it all the time with my G Shocks and Swatches.

    2032 refers to the battery size, 20mm in diameter, 3.2mm in height. CR seems to be the standard name but different manufacturers put different letters on the front. If I recall DL is duracell and ECR is energizer.

    So Don't worry they are all the same thing.

    You're good to go. The dimensions are standard by class, just different brands / manufacturers, as jzmtl explains. It's the same version that I use in mine and I get them from whichever drugstore has them on sale.

    Do you always lubricate the seal around the battery cover when you change the battery? I know it can't hurt , but is it really necessary?

    Yes. Clean all the dead skin and junk off of it, then lightly lubricate the seal. The lubrication helps maintain the life of the o-ring, once it dries out it can crack and then the watch will leak. Don't get crazy while lubricating, just a small amount will do wonders.

    Be sure to use a silicone based lubricant. NOT a patroleum base.

    NO Vaseline, but plumbers silicon grease or dielectric grease will work fine.

    I use either Danco Plumbers Silicon Grease or Permatex Dieletric grease.

    Walmart should have it. Dialectric grease is used with trailer hitch plugs a lot. Radio Shack might have it. Any automotive store carries it.
