sounds like it. Lots of sellers only guarantee batteries for 12months, you never know how long it's been sat on a shelf ticking away.

It is only a year since you bought it...how long since the battery was installed...we will never know....other times some batteries just don't last..it happens.

I upgraded my C6's to the atomic reactor version so I don't have to worry about batteries running out. Will last for centuries plus it glows nicely in the dark. :lol:

I wonder... people seemed to find it acceptable to wear slightly radioactive lume in their watches so why not a reactor? How small can one be made? And as you pointed out will have good lume. May have been said in jest but think you have something. last a life time with no battery change.

Not sure if its true, but a colleague at work told me that if you get a new battery at Timsons they give you a card which gives you free replacements for the life time of the watch.
