Sad watch question

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by convoy_cock, May 22, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What batteries do G10 watches take. Just found one in the bottom of a suitcase in the house, but the battery housing - she is empty - and I want to see if it goes.

    Cheers

    Stick it in eBay for 10p - bet it goes then!
     
  3. I would hazard a guess and say it takes G10 watch batteries.
     
  4. Good point, also have a G10 for men that needs new batteries!
     
  5. Go to poundland and buy the assorted set of batteries. It has at least 10 different sizes of watch and calculator sized batteries and if one of those doesn't fit, sell her.
     
  6. Gents,

    Thanks very much for the replies, except for the one from the poster with the wacky Simpsons avatar.

    I was going to put "please don't say it takes G10 batteries", but assumed that no-one would be enough of a lame c-unt on this site, to make that particular joke.

    I bet you were giggling like a schoolkid while you typed it, you jocular hero, you.
     
  7. Mine says V395 on it. Quick look at the equivalent types suggests any of these should work:
    SR926SW, SR57, SR927, SB-AP/DP, 280-48, LA, V395, D395, 610, 395, GP395, S926E

    Sorry for the lack of sarcastic or humerous elements to my post. But hopefully any Monty Python fans will enjoy my avatar - That Larch

    This is a seriously sad thread here :lol:
     
  9. Why don't you just take it to a jewellers and let them worry about finding the right size of battery?
     
  10. Cheers for the steer GS. My old watch is now up and working and is right at least twice a day.
     
  11. Convoy. Please tell me this is a wind up - in every sense.
