Orient LED with 2 small metal discs that form battery contac

Post16 Jan 2017, 19:42

Good afternoon,
I recently acquired an Orient LED ("Touch") that was disassembled.
There is a Ziploc bag of parts containing:
--two small metal discs ("discs"), each the diameter of a 357 battery, with apparent battery contacts on one side (upward prongs);
--what appears to be a single clear plastic spacer, which fits perfectly around a 357 battery. the battery fits nicely inside the green module with this spacer, but there was only one included.
My questions:
1. are the discs supposed to lay on the upward side of each battery, with the prongs pressing against the battery, once batteries are installed?
2. should there be two plastic spacers, one for each battery?
I've heard of spacers being required for Pulsar P2/3, but never for Orient.
It definitely takes the 357 batteries though.
Any thoughts appreciated.
*****************EDIT: After comparing the "spacers" to P2/3 spacers, it appears the spacer that came with the Orient is much thinner, about the thickness of 0.5 mm. More like a plastic "sleeve". Any idea what this is for, and why only a single one? Perhaps it is to prevent batteries from touching.
***********FURTHER EDIT: After cogitating on this question, it appears there can be only 2 practical purposes for such a plastic "sleeve" on a battery: 1)to prevent inadvertent contact with another battery or side of module battery cut-out; 2)to mitigate potential corrosion damage, in event of battery leakage. The sleeve does cover the negative contact side of battery somewhat, with approx. 4mm aperture. It covers the battery "seam".

Good evening,
Thank you!!
That is everything.
It appears I am missing a "Cell cover".
Also, I do not have any "Cell seats".
Perhaps I can source these items from somewhere.

This is exciting.

You're welcome :-)
The watch does work without the fancy bits though. With some fiddling you can place the batteries. The cell holder (the metal springy bit with the screw) is necessary of course.

That battery cover on the negative side up looks very dodgy, looks to me like with the right (wrong in this case) battery style it could short the battery, unless I'm seeing it wrong?

I thought the covers were plastic? :scratch:

I know but it sure helps when you own three of them.
You have to pick up what all the bits are for along the way, cos you don't have access to the pic above.
Thanks Dutch better late than never. :ha: :Prost: :Prost:
Also watches turning up with differing amounts of each little bit can get really confusing. :scratch: :bang:
