I have all mine done at the little jewellers at the top of ecclesall rd. Near the old gilders, opposite side of the road at the very start of the shops.

If you're anywhere near Woodseats, take it to Garratts the Jewellers at the corner of The Dale.

You beat me to it! I wear a Fossil watch for everyday use (not as cool as yours flash Harry!)

It is a nice watch and is water resistent down to 50 metres under water. It stoped today and I thought about taking the back off it myself to change the battery. A friend of mine told me not to do it, as I may damage the seel.

Therefore I would also like to know the answer to your OP.

By the way, I wear a Raymond Wiel at the weekend!

That's three votes for Garratts then

btw, if anyone's interested, you get the best prices for gold there too, from what I've been told *wishes she had some gold* *feels she's lost a game of Dungeon Master*

I wouldn't worry too much about going out of your way, any watch battery place would do it. It's not like it needs to be pressure tested or needs any special tools. If the worst comes to the worst, it's no biggy - even Chinese auto movements are ten a penny.

Didn't think I would see watch snobs on SF

To guarantee it remains water resistant it may have to sent back to the manufacturer or an approved repairer.

In my wife's case this took 6 weeks!

Send it off and use a cheaper watch for the hols.

The OP went on holiday a long time ago, check the dates

It's only worth sending back to the manufacturer if it's a decent brand and worth doing - sadly, hilfiger (like other fashion brands) really is not...
