For some reason I have it in my head I need to send our two Luminox watches back to Luminox to have the batteries replaced. Maybe it's in the papers that came with the one new watch. I need to dig those out. Maybe I read it somewhere else.
I was at a local jeweler this afternoon and he was wearing a Luminox so I mentioned bringing mine in for battery replacement and even he said they're supposed to be sent to Luminox due them being gas filled (??), and for warranty purposes. I'd never heard the gas filled statement before, warranty yes, and if a watch is still in warranty I'm sure that's why it's suggested to send back for battery replacement.
Warranty isn't an issue. Both watches are well out of warranty.
Is there any reason why I shouldn't get the battery replaced locally?
The battery in both watches lasted close to five years. Does Luminox use some special super battery? If so, that would be the only reason I would consider sending in the watches..
