Good-quality watches with good quality batteries fitted by jewellers don't do that.
I once had a jeweller put a new battery in my watch (trouble-free for 20 years) and a week later it stopped. I took it back, and then a week or two later it stopped again. I forget how many times this happened before I made a key to take the back off myself. The problem was apparent immediately: someone couldn't be bothered unscrewing the battery clip, so they just bent it out of the way to remove the battery. Each new battery was just popping out from under the bent clip.
