And also

and I guess this is an important also.


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?


Just wondering of course pals


Be seein' ya soon :)

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.

I do not have an Omega quartz; but, I do have other quartzes that have lasted over 20 years. Seems they can go on forever with regular battery changes.

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.


Thanks again pals


Be well now :)
