Be alert....I have Gucci watches & have taken them to various places with the batteries replaced - no problem....

My sport watch stopped after about a year since the last battery replacement (l only wear watches on international travel).....

We took it to a place by our local Big C.....This guy was better equipped than some of the others....Right away he started about this being a "special" battery - cost, 800B.....

I have 3 Gucci watches, all batteries have been replaced in LOS with no mention of "special" & cost about 200-400B.....

He then put on this big show & pronounced the watch had a problem pointing to the circuit board indicating that in 3 days & 3500B he could have it fixed ASAP.....

In the US if there was a problem the watch had to be sent to L.A. or N.Y. involving weeks and the cost he quoted wouldn't cover a band repair....I declined & have been meaning to take it elsewhere for a look see.....Since I rarely wear a watch I haven't yet....

That being said, I found the Seiko shop at Airport Plaza to be reliable - 2 trips drop/pick up....

The only reason I tried this other at Hang Dong Big C is my wife took one of her watches in & I took mine too.....

I don't know if the guy was legit, but I know the price, location, and time frame wasn't......

Update - took my watch to the booth at Tesco Lotus on Hang Dong Rd....I had used them before.....

Was given the choice of a 2 or 3 year battery (#371).....

She installed the new battery, air cleaned the inside + wiped down/cleaned the watch band, & set the time and date.....

The watch is purring along like new - cost 350B.....

Draw your own conclusions about the first guy we went to at Big C, Mae Hia....
