If you have a decently large watch collection, and/or would just like to save some money on watch repairs, you should learn how to do basic repairs such as battery changing, link removing, back cover opening and strap changing on your own so you don’t have to pay the high prices most jewelers charge.
I decided to go this route after needing batteries replaced in four watches and replacing one band. I ended up spending over $80 when I could have purchased all the batteries for well less than $10 and the band was a simple $20 band.
A watch repair tool kit like this one is perfect for those who are interested in watch repair: changing batteries, bands and minor repairs on watches. Not only do you save money, but I actually enjoyed performing the work on my watches.
This watch repair tool kit contains 12 different tools that works with most watches. It includes 5 screwdrivers, 2 pin pushers, a brass hammer with metal handle, a spring bar remover, a case opener, a screw type link remover, a plastic block to hold watch bands in plast and a compact zippered leather carrying case.
If you would rather a simpler kit, there are more than a few other cheaper watch repair kits.
