    Default Changing watch batteries ...

    Hi,

    Can anyone point to me reliable shops which can help to change batteries for my Tissot watches? Looking for those which are centrally located.

    Really hate to be ripped off and to a greater extent, got leaky, short-life batteries which could damage the time-pieces.

    Thanks in advance!

    There's a watch shop on first floor of Funan, opposite Mcdonalds. Think i paid $20 to get my battery changed. Don't think it's the cheapest around, but this shop seems reputable enough. They sell Tissot watches by the way.

    I go Tai Wah too. Honest owner, will tell u if the watch can or cannot be repaired or is it worth repairing so as not to waste customer time and money. Battery prices are reasonable as well. Go try it.

    Please look carefully that they don't give you Sanyu (山油) battery.
