Hello Everyone,

I'm new to these pages and hope I'm posting in the right place. In 1983 I bought a Seiko quartz Chronograph 7A38 7289. I must have replaced the battery at least once. I just really can't remember. Anyway, I would like to get it going again and I would like to do it myself. I have the tool and the basic knowledge of removing the back. But, because it's so old, am I putting the watch in jeopardy? It's been sitting silent for nearly thirty years. Any advice would be appreciated. By the way, I'm very fond of what you've done here. Nice site.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

If it is that old you really do need to take the back off because the battery may have leaked and caused major damage or you could be lucky but you really need to remove the back.
