Top 20 La Crosse XG-55 Wrist Watch Questions & Answers


If your numbers dim when you push any button, it's probably a battery. If your numbers are off or very faint same problem, battery. Those watches take a 1.50 V cell because of the light, and multi functions. Any decent jewelry store should be able to have you in and out in 10 minutes or sooner.

Good luck, gabe.

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for
the small cost saving in doing it yourself.

No we don't touch with a metal there is no need to do that :

Try shorting the battery case to the watch chassis (using a pair of tweezers perhaps).

This seems to be a standard instruction and I think this resets the watch.

When you change the battery on this watch you have to short the circuit board. You need a fine pair of tweezers and you need to look on the circuit board for an arrow or bare spot, put 1 end of the tweezers on that place on the circuit board and the other on the battery at the same time. that should do the trick if the battery was installed correctly and the battery is good.

altitude changes depending on pressure; because you are along ocean, you experience it more than usual.
M problem is that temperature remains higher than normal one (30°C), can you solve it ?

You will need to take this watch in to a local Certified Master Horologist. It will have to be opened and reset from the inside by shorting the appropriate contacts on the movement. It may also require a battery to operate properly, if it has not been replaced in the past 1-2 years.

If you wear this watch in the water, you need to have it pressure tested to ensure its resistance after the procedure. This is properly done with a pressure testing machine that usually is found at Horologist / Watchmaker shops only.

Tip & How-To about Watches
Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!

Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

Good enough to tell the time, but George is a Walmart brand isn't it?. The specs say it has a Japanese Quartz movement, so the same as Seiko. Therefore, it will keep good time.

sadly this is one of the hardest watch repairs so the problem is in two parts part one is it even possible to repair the break depends on where the break actually is and 2 the tougher part is finding a jewler that is any kind of craftsman most jewelers today are just salesmen not jewlers at all so the first step is finding an old world jewler good luch and I hope it can be saved!
