Torrevieja Forum - Information coming soon!
I think that is exactly what has happened although the jewellers in Habaneras didn’t make any comment, in Fact I offered to buy a new battery but she said it wasn’t necessary.
Thank you. I did go to the jeweller at Playa Flamenca and unfortunately he is unable to do it and says I have to take to a rotary dealer as the hand is broken We walked round Torrevieja and Zenia Boulevard and the jewelers have never heard of rotary so don’t Think it is a common make in Spain. Thanks for the link and I will ask my son to take it back to UK next week and send it off for me.TVTechnology wrote: ↑Mon Oct 22, 2018 4:34 pmDepends how well you want it fixed - if it needs new hands or mechanism, then more than just a battery change and may need someone who can actually service a watch properly - most jewellers can do a battery swap and link removal.
I found the online service centre form for the UK, if you want sent off and done properly. https://sav.rotarywatches.com/ I do actually have the tools myself, but they are not the greatest and would not want to damage a heirloom. It shouldn't be that difficult to get the back off for the battery, usually a 2 minute job - the issue is more if you want to make sure is water resistant (which will depend on the type of watch) as the jewellers don't usually pressure test them, they need to go off to a service centre. If the hands are not moving then either the first new battery was a dud, or you may need a replacement mechanism (it won't be too much as Quartz, not expensive automatic), which at that point, maybe better dealing with a proper watch repairer or service centre to get you the correct parts.
Also - which may be of interest, if you send back to official service centre you may be able to get the watch tidied up a bit - I recently sent an old watch off to a service centre - new bezel (scratched to bits), polished the strap buckle to remove scratches and a pressure test to boot. Reassuringly expensive, but i'll get almost a brand new 25-year-old watch. May be useful if old watch and you want to bring back to life a little?
