Battery Change on TAG Heuer Link Quartz - ETA 955.112 movement
I find that as watchnerds we tend to neglect quartz movements, even though they power the vast majority of watches out there, and there aren't really all that much information on them either. Previously I quickly posted about the ETA G01.211 as fitted to a CK watch and the response has been better than expected, confirming that people out there do want to know about quartz movements. So, here is a post on another popular and widely used ETA quartz movement, as fitted to a TAG Heuer Link watch.
|The watch in question, and brand new battery ready to go|
|All the tools I need to conduct the battery change...|
|"Friction ball" used to open the case back. This way I won't leave nasty scratches/gouges on the case back in case I slip. BUT, the downside is that it doesn't have enough 'torque' to really fully tighten the case back|
|The ETA 955.112 is relatively svelte, so it looks small in the case, needing a fairly thick plastic casing ring|
|Movement is ETA stamped, but nothing else|
|395 battery fitted|
Other than that the watch should be good for another 4-5 years before needing the next battery change.
