What if something goes wrong with the movement. Can it be repaired or do they have to swap a new one into the watch much like computer engineers exchange motherboards and the like and how much would a replacement movement say, in an X-33 cost?
I have quartz watches that are 17 years old...no maintenance, just batt changes. My friend Lynn always has my change her battery in a 22 year old watch. Sure some individual parts can be replaced. John Wilson.
Thanks for taking the time to come back to me guys.
Wow John, you have researched the X-33!!!
Well, the option of not having to replace the whole thing does give me great encouragement. I'd just hate to have the thing die on me two days after the warranty runs out. I gather that quartz are also more gentle on certain parts of a watch.
