Battery life varies usually from two to five years depending on the type of the watch, its dimensions and the amount of energy required by the different functions. If your watch has a seconds hand and it begins to jump in four-second intervals, the battery of your Hamilton watch needs to be replaced. This is an end of life indicator.
We recommend that you take your watch to an authorized Hamilton Service Center or Hamilton retailer to have your watch battery replaced as they have the necessary tools and testing equipment to carry out the work to Hamilton’s high quality standards.
A mechanical movement is a micromechanical high precision instrument that takes its energy from a mainspring which is placed in the movement barrel. This mainspring is charged either by an oscillating weight that winds the watch mainspring as you move (automatic) or by hand (manual winding).
If you do not wear your automatic / mechanical watch for a few days, it will stop working and will need to be reset.
Quartz movements take their energy from a battery and a synthetic quartz regulates them.
All Hamilton movements are produced according to the strict quality standards of the Swatch Group.
