    Question What battery does the Precisionist use?

    Specifically, the 98B142. I know it is Lithium, but anyone know the exact model?

    Thanks!
    A $20 plastic quartz watch keeps better time than most fine mechanical watches, but anyone comparing the two is missing the point entirely.

    The best info I could find are the following pics (Found here: http://www.bestofwatch.com/forums/vi...c.php?p=22#p22):

    For this model Precisionist (96B127):



    Battery is a 90 mAh 3.0 Volt (http://data.energizer.com/PDFs/cr2016.pdf) CR2016:



    Pic of the 8-Jewel movement:



    I have no reason to suspect that ALL models of the Precisionist don't use the same battery.

    What do you expect in a watch that retails for $225 (Bulova Mens Claremont Precisionist - Stainless Steel - Black Dial and Strap 96B127)?

    I've opened up a lot of watches selling for a lot more that use plastic spacers.

    I know most use watches use plastic spacers. I just didn't know the movement was that small in this watch.

    Technological advancement, I presume, only goes towards reducing the sizes of the movements. At the same time, fashion only makes the watches grow bigger. So I guess there is no other way but to let plastic spacers rejoice. And, thanks gaijin.

    Err...always a good idea to put a link to where you find pictures, info, good thing I had watermarked them, eh...so here you go : Bulova Precisionist Movement Pictures and Info – P102, 8 jewels BestofWatch

    So has the battery in your precisionist run out already? They should be good for 3 years normally, but with many Precionists running at +60spy after a year, including mine, it's probably not a good idea to take what Bulova say at face value

    Thanks for the link. Proper credit and link added to my post above.

    FYI: I found the images through a Google image search: Precisionist images - Google Search

    Always glad to give full and proper photo credits
