    I broke my daughter's Omega watch trying to replace the battery [emoji24]

    I already managed to replace it twice, but everytime I forgot how to do it and would just watch the video in YouTube. This time I couldn't find that video anymore and I tried to force it pop out and the gold strap holding it snapped!

    Worse is while I was trying to figure out how to put it back, it flew and I can't find it anymore.

    Anyone here know if this is still fixable by a watch repair shop? Not by Omega ha, that's very expensive.

    Try bringing it to Mang Andy at Makati Cinema Square. He's the go to guy for Swiss watches. Most likely it's his son who's there now since Mang Andy stays at home near Mayon most of the time. His shop is still there though.

    Thanks, tagal na nitong si Mang Andy of MCS ah, I read about him at a watch forum I searched when this same watch stopped when I had the battery changed, na damage siguro nung matanda. But because malayo ako sa MCS, I found a repair shop at Festival Alabang who replaced the mechanism for 6.5k. But the guy who fixed this is no longer there as they claim he's already too old and has shaky hands.

    It may be worth the trip to MCS if only to eat at Aida's after having the watch repaired. Or if you wanna go all the way to Mayon to Mang Andy's home, malapit na ang Jonas for the original pares

    Were you able to check out his shop? Just came from there awhile back. Mang Andy was there. Was regulating one of my watches and i accidentally hit the hairspring. Hindi ko na kaya if need magremove ng parts. So I left it and had another serviced para one trip lang. Of course lunch at Aida's Chicken.

    of course, that is how it usually is: "things are not always as easy as they appear to be..."

What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
