STEP 5

Test the batteries.

See the battery tester for operating instructions.

IMPORTANT:

If the watch has two batteries and only one tests “replace”, replace both batteries. If both test “good”, there is something wrong with the watch. Refer it to your watchmaker.

Install the New Batteries . IMPORTANT:

Be sure to test new batteries before installing. For tester settings, follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Install the new Star Struck battery(s) with the same side up as the one(s) you replaced (8A). Remember, the watch won’t work if the batteries are put in wrong.
