Enjoy your visit here. Watch batteries generally last about 5 years unless you use the chronograph features in a watch. They drain the battery much faster.

How long will a new battery last in my quartz watch (not Kinetic)?

Battery life is dependent on use. Multi-function quartz watches use battery power rapidly when utilized daily. One to two years is the average battery life, but some may work for three years if the watch has only to power analogue hands. Battery changes will be needed more often as your watch gets older. This is due both to the oil degrading inside the watch and the gaskets drying and cracking (letting in contaminants that land in the oil and produce more friction).

Friction is the enemy of all watches! As the oil looses its viscosity (slipperiness), it places a strain on the gears in the train and the motor, and this will drains the battery at a faster rate than when the watch was 'new.' The solution is easy. Have a complete service. Worst-case scenario - you will need a new movement,but the cost of this is usually less than a new watch.

This will also depend on the "freshness" of the battery installed in your watch. Some batteries are "old stock" and already demonstrate a load voltage below 1.5 volts, which indicates the battery is not suitable for service, and has "expired."
