At a glance the brand looks like Citroen. So no thanks.

Buying a watch is easy. Its the maintenance thatcost money. I went to ernest Jones 2 days ago about changing battery on a Hugo BOSS watch i bought from them 2yrs ago. They said l have to send it off and and it will cost me £40!!! I said i only paid £65 for it on sale. I need to get battery replacement kit as i have a few and about 6 of them have dead batteries. If a salesman in certain shops can do it then how hard can it be. Right?

Quoted £450 to service my Omega!
Not everyone can afford big name watches. These are fine if you are on a budget, make a nice gift.

Deffo buy the kit it has saved us an absolute fortune. I just love watches and have a fair few, and always forget to stop the battery if I am not going to wear one for a while, so quite often need to change batteries. I bought two different tools off Ebay for a few quid and they work a treat.
you can usually buy the watch batteries from the poundshop
This definitely isn't for me, however is definitely a good deal.
An update is coming out for these with Google assistant built in
Three horrible watches, in one horrible box...pass.

I know, what's all this waffle about changing batteries?

I believe mine (an 8500 Si14 Planet Ocean) only needs servicing every 10 years, which is nice.

Have a look on eBay. I managed to get my Seiko serviced for £50 by a watch maker. You send it to them. Obviously trust is a big factor but the feedback was good enough for me. Saved me £100 and had it back in 10 days

Many Omegas are around that too though.
You'd be better putting the £20 toward one watch...

Some jewellery shops do lifetime batteries, you pay slightly more but they replace it for free every time you need a new one. I think mine was £8 or £12 for a lifetime one. Obviously will be more if it is waterproof and need to be reseated and pressure tested.

You could (I think you still can) use Tesco clubcard points in Goldsmiths and this includes servicing It was x3 when I last had my Oris serviced

You beat me to it.
If you have a watch that costs more to service than your car, then you need to give your head a shake. This shake can be performed before or after addressing the other multitude of issues you must have.
I don't see watches as a necessaty but as a fashion accessory. In the old days before mobile phones were invented, I couldn't do without wearing one. But ever since mobile phones were introduced I have long thrown away my watches.

I've not wore a watch since the early 90's. I'd still rather wear the Casio than those three. Heat for Casio at £6

Check out your local market, we got a guy on our market here who charges just £3:00 and gives you a one guarantee, and he does most watches.

+1 If you dont already, apply silicone grease to to the seal on the back when you change battery, stops water getting in.

All mechanicals have to be serviced every 4-5 years: fully disassembled, lubed assembled, parts changed if needed. Its worth it in a long run.

Strong words, have to be! No, it's a manufactures recommendation.

Since most manufactures for mid / high-end watches only offer a 2-4 year warranty missing a service date won't affect the warranty.

When they start gaining or losing time, or they aren't holding their charge. That's the time for a service. It's not a car, the breaks stop working if you miss a service date. Or it will break down and leave you stranded on the side of the road.

It's a bit like the old argument. About it being better to keep on a automatic winder when not wearing them. Bollocks let them run down, it stops the serviceable parts from wearing.

£450, that sound like a Omega service price for a non-chronograph watch. You can find reputable horologist's who will do it cheaper.
