anyone knows where to get one locally?
i tried hour glass.but the one they carry doesnt really appeal to me. and it's expensive.it's near $300.

i'm sick and tired of having to wind my watches whenever i need to wear them.

thanks;)

problem is, i'm also tired of waiting for battery replacements from agents.

eg, tag heuer takes 2 weeks!(YES 2 WEEKS) to get a batt changed if you send to their agent.
not to mention it cost about 30-45 for a bloody batt!

Get this: its a Casio lol O i'm not saying you spent your money wrongly, just that it makes one wonder how come something so branded as a Tag has such a poor life spend because you think with the prices they command, they'd better be long lasters.

i sent it back to agent at wisma.that's what they told me.

when i did it at sincere, they told me my watch is spoilt.then when i brought it back to tag heuer, they told me it's NOT spoilt.they just forgot to press a button.:dunno::embrass:

one thing you have to realise when you send outside to non autho-agents.they do not do vacuum sealing for you.they change, they cap back.once you have moisture or air inside, that's it.especially if your watch has those luminous hour markings, they will turn black over time.

dunnoe. it was years ago when i last saw the ads...dun even know if the line is still around. I did think it was innovative and a good idea though...still do but i think there might have been some inherent design flaws that they might have missed as well.

Seiko's Kinetic is basically a upgraded version of automatic. Automatic need to shake shake, Kinetic, less shake shake = same power. However, all automatics even when worn everyday is very prone to slowing. For me, I would rather go and change batt. If the 2 weeks you gonna wait, in the meantime, go and get another watch to wear first loor.
