    Pluton battery life?

    Had my AD replace the battery in my Pluton at the end of February and yesterday it's dead, that's only six months. I've had the watch since new and it's never happened before.

    I may be squealing before I'm hurt 'cause I don't know that it's chronic and I haven't taken it back to the AD yet but I just wondered if anybody had any thoughts or experiences.

    Thanks

    This sounds like he supplied old stock. A battery should last anywhere up to 4 years. Six months is far too soon for a it to fail. Take it back.

    The caliber 51, which is fitted to your watch, should run for about 2 years on a 392 type battery.

    One reason for low battery performance could be contaminated contacts; maybe you might want to ask the shop to clean and adjust the contacts when fitting the next battery.


    That will give you hopefully better battery performance next time.

    The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.

    6 months is deffinately too short.

    However it is very important to remember that the Pluton is multifunctional with a very high consumption operating light and alarm. The battery life will be very dependant on how the watch is used.

    I would say that if you can get two years out of the 392 you are doing well.
