  Armitron MD0346-R(T)-2 Battery

   Change the battery when the watch becomes slow, the readout darkens or does not appear, or the backlight fails. Before removing the old battery, be sure to denote its polarity so that the new battery is installed in exactly the same way. Replace with one (1) CR2025 or equivalent only.
   This watch contains precise electronic components and should only be opened by a qualified watch technician. However, it is not necessary to return your watch to the manufacturer for battery replacement. It is recommended that you bring your timepiece to a local jeweler.
Need clarification as to whether it is a CR2016 or CR2025??? This watch has apparently been out for a few years -but- finding info specific to it is a bear. Most of the info has 'other' model numbers on it. May be for this watch also but it is not stated so.
     Ok. I called Armitron and they said it is the CR2025.

How it works
A battery powers a piece of quartz shaped like a tuning fork. An electrical charge from the battery causes the quartz to vibrate, creating a steady frequency used to count or measure time at an extremely accurate pace.

    This WebPage was created just for fun -and- cause I found Info on this watch hard to find. A number of people were already complaining about that. Then there are those that have lost the instructions (like I so oftern do ... they're small and tiny!!). Anyway, if you can benifit ... great. If not ... well Hello and thanks for stopping by.
