Ah - Must have got lucky with the last one then.
NNNNnnooooooooooo
Back in stock. Hot.
Basic looks, but a good brand and a good price.
Be aware though, that once the battery runs out, it'll cost £120-£150 for a new one, plus re-sealed.

No. When you add it to the basket you get a message saying not in stock.
yep says in stock in basket then when you click pay it says "The following sku(s) 6805698 are out of stock and has to be removed"

Just had a battery change and re-seal on my Tissot for £39.95 at Ernest Jones, are different models different prices?

Any reputable Tissot outlet will send a Tissot watch needing a new battery to Switzerland for replacement and re-sealing, to maintain the warranty. Yours cleary wasn't.

How long does a typical battery last?
Unless you are going to use for swimming, you can get the batteries replaced for a few quid, as they don't need resealing, which Imo is a massive con.

I've got a tag link sl, f1 and a grande chronograph and refuse to pay the ridiculous amounts goldsmiths want.

when my wife's tag stopped functioning properly after a mere 2 years they wanted £245 for servicing it.

I took them to small claims court under eu legislation and they paid me the £245 repair fee.

Don't think I'd agree with this, had a Tag a few years back, shrinked on paying the near £100 battery replacement charge, put it into a local jeweller, paid around £25, watch never worked correctly or remained watertight again - and I don't do anything other than very rarely swimming and a shower daily. Eventually sold it for spare or repair, got pennies back for a £1,200 watch. I'd pay the extra for the non battery model if I was to buy another in the future.
Automatic watches have their detractors (accuracy +/-5 sec per day >>> +/- 30 sec per day is useless if you have to have precise accuracy), they are more expensive and some (Swatch, for instance), use cheap metals, springs and !plastic! in the movement for built in obsolescence (last week, I was wearing a 40 year old Citizen) and they tend to be more expensive new.
But, there is no battery....

Mind you, they still like to be serviced every few years.

So are you saying Ernest Jones arent a reputable outlet?
My comment should have read "not for swimming ".

I don't go to the local pool with my tag on, so don't need the specialist sealing, which I think is a massive con.

The showers are what killed it.
