I have a gold cased version of the above pictured watch. it consumes batteries at the rate of about 1 every 3-4 months. also it will stop after being worn for about 5 minutes. It was serviced a couple of years ago. Several people have looked at it and can find nothing wrong. Very frustrating. Can anybody help at all?
