Tissot T Touch Expert Battery Replacement & calibration

Dear Friends
Hi From Greece.Today i will post and explain how can we replace the Battery on Tissot Touch Expert.You can DIY and the level is Easy.
If you see another one video in my youtube channel about the change battery from Tissot Sea Touch you can see the practice for the repla ememt is same because the movements is really the same.
Many emails ask me to make a video from Tissot Touch Expert and I make it my friends.
The First you must see if the hands is calibrated.
For the example of my video the batt indicator is in warning condition in my Display,But there are many watches loose the calibration without this batt warning.
How can See if the battery is on the end without batt warning.
1)We press the Compass function and if this function dont work means the batt is on the end.And Why that?because the compass function needs more energy from the other Functions.
2)We push the middle button to activate the touch and touch the center of glass until the Opt.We push the middle button again to enter to Options.We Touch again the center until we see the function Sleep and we leave it for 10 sec to activate the sleep mode.
When the Sleep mode activated the display stop working and the hands show exactly 12 o clock.If one hand is not at the 12 o clock,then the Hands need calibration.
Please see The next video.




The Battery Replacement on Tissot Touch Expert

This is the most carefully step on replacememt of the battery.
And you must carefull with the cleaning of the case and the Gasket too.Because many watchmaker play only on the target to replace the battery and close the watch and give it to the customer.
On Everytime you open the watch you must clean with clear Benzin all the parts of the back case and leave it 3 minutes open.
For this Reason first clean the watch and then replace the battery.
When you finish the clean,replace or GHANGE the Gasket again with basylone silicone.(Read a previous post for this Silicone).
And Now is the time of Battery.
The watch have same movement with the Sea Touch and take the same Battery also.The battery is the Cr 2032 and personally i use only Maxwell on 3V lithium Batteries.(I will make a post about the batteries in the next days).
Replace the battery and dont touch any button until close the case.
And why the that.Because when push any button the watch will activate without the sensors.
Please continue and close the clean back case and install all the screws and you are ready.
Please enjoy the next video from my Youtube channell

The third part is the Reset and the Hands calibration or Synchro


In this part the watch must reset like a sea touch video.
You are going to the sleep mode
Middle button>activate the touch>touch the center>and touch until the sleep mode.
When you activate the sleep mode push the + button for 6 sec and the then the compass function.
The display is in the Factory reset and show if all the sensors working and the battery Level and in the last the reset.
When you finish with that you can synchro the hands
The syncronization start again from the middle button for Touch activation and touch the glass center until the mode 24h Cm.
In this Mode push the middle button for 5 sec and you are in synchro.
With + or – button you can set the minutes hand at 12 o clock.
When you finish with the minutes hand touch the center of Glass and now you can set the hours hand with + or -button to the 12 o clock.
When you do that push the middle button again the watch is Ready

image

The dial surface is more bigger from the other Touch series and this make it from my opinion because the movement need real solar energy to charge the ML2016 capacitor.One of the new function of the watch is the capacitor level.And Continue with Matterial.The Solar Touch made from Titanium and PVD on bezel.( Physical Vapor Deposition).The Weigth of the watch with the bracelet is 122 gr.

of around 30° per second.

The New function is the Azimuth reading.The Azimuth is a real good tool for the people who need a real compass for Driving the Right Way.

The Center function is more reach from previous Tissot T Touch series.
If you activate the button of the touch
And press the center of the glass you can see:

Time 2
And battery level.
The level of the battery or charge indicator in 3 position battery drained or flat means the capacitor is empty
1/3 means is charged 33%

16 minutes from inside the home.

And 5 hours of charge under fluorescent light doors.

The last function of centre is the options
In the options you can see:
The swap is the mode you can switch from time 1 to time 2 when you are travel in other country or another geo zone.
Sync is the synchro from other Tissot touch series models.
Units is like previous models
Alarm weekend days selection is new
Beep on or off is the same with the previous version
And GEO
Is something new.For this you need the map in manual
image

In the first you must select hemisphere.
Example.I am from Greece I choose North in the display nor.
The other is the local climate.
Other example for my place.I choose Mediterranean in the display is MEd.
The other symbol is tRo tropical, POL polar,Dry,

The other mode is ECO
ECO is like screensaver in monitor.
You can choose yes or no or auto.
With this mode you can save the battery in the night if the watch is not operated for 1 hour when the time 1 (swap time 1) is between 22:00 and 5:00
The watch deactivated and the analogue indicates the time 1
If you choose in ECO no the watch never switches back to energy saving mode.
