Should I pull the crown out of my watch to save battery life?
ANSWER: One of the benefits of a quartz watch is its extreme accuracy. If you put it away for a month , when you use it again it will still be on time. Pulling the crown out means you’ll have to reset the watch. also pulling the crown out opens the watch to dust and moisture, 2 things that will make a watch run poorly. Since a battery lasts for 1-2 years and only runs about $7.00 to replace, we don’t recommend pulling out the crown to save the battery.
