Home battery replacement
« on: March 22, 2017, 07:16:59 PM »
So, how much can I mess up if I get the tool to open the watch properly. We have two places locally (that isn't the small hole in the wall kind of place) and one of them only referred me to the other place that had me pay 34$ for a battery replacement on my Seamaster, that's not including pressure testing it (that would have been a 51$ total). Maybe I'm wrong but these prices seem quite unreasonable? So, how bad could I potentially mess it up if I did it myself?

Well you could, at best remove any residual water resistance, at worst smurf the movement completely

It's easy if you know how - and then, it's easy to mess up the entire works if you make a mistake.

Tip: View some online instructions.

Hmm.  I take my Omega Seamaster in.  I'm pretty confident with G shock services but not with my Omega. 

I think I last paid about the same ( $50-$75 ) for a battery change and testing. 

Edit.  The store also sent it out for service.  They didn't do it in house.

Fair enough, I guess it's the way to go then.
