I have been wondering what is best for storing Qtz movement watches. Leave them running or stop the movements to preserve battery life. I have several venoms. I wonder how long the battery life is for the venoms. I would imagine having the batteries changed out might be a major concern. I hate to disturb the o-rings and mess up the water resistance of these watches. Any and all comments are welcomed.

For me when it is time to change the battery a watchmaker will get it done in no time and your watch will be water resistant like it was when you bought it!

Invicta can replace the battery and check the water resistance after but its probably pricey. Try to give them a call for a quote. You should be fine going local to a real watch tech not the kiosk at your local mall.

How damaging is it if you replace them yourself? How important is the WR to the function? I had intended to change mine myself when the time(s) came. That was why I got a case back opener. Would that shorten the life of the watch? I don't wear them in the water except for a possible dunking while doing dishes.

Its not damaging if its done properly. Sometimes people don't oil the gasket and they pinch/stretch the caseback gasket when they tighten it. Sometimes they reuse gaskets that are damaged instead of replacing it. I change mine myself but if a person needs to maintain the WR they should go through the manufacturer who can change the battery and properly test the WR.
