Re: Wittnauer litium longlife battery?
A large battery is still used to achieve a long change interval. The Seiko
8F32 is supposed to be good for ten years using a Seiko CR 2412 battery.
On a side note, earlier Seiko perpetual calendar watches could be set using
external buttons. This recent model requires the user to open the watch and
touch various tabs with a jumper wire.
