Replace A Shinola Runwell Battery

When you choose to use Watch Gnome’s Shinola watch battery replacement service, you get the following white glove service:

  1. Initial watch inspection including the band, case, face, clasp and screws. We make sure everything is in proper starting condition before we even get started!
  2. Next, we carefully remove the case back via unscrewing the 4 holding screws. This process must be done with the correct size screw driver and very carefully. While overall Shinola watches are extremely durable, improper removal of these screws could accidentally strip them or damage your case back.
  3. Once the case back is open, we remove the retaining clip and do an internal inspection. We check to make sure there is no corrision, loose parts or damage to the watch coil. Then we carefully move the battery retaining arm and remove the battery.
  4. Next, we replace the battery with a brand new, factory sealed Energizer battery and carefully replace the battery retaining arm. Then we ensure that the watch is keeping proper time over a 20-30 minute period.
  5. Finally, we replace the plastic retaining clip, inspect the gasket and replace if necessary and securely reseal the watch case.
  6. We set the watch to your local time zone and send it back to you!
