Question about Timex 27191 Wristwatch
I have an old Micky Mouse Timex Electric watch. It has not had a battery in it for many years. I took it to a local jewlery store they put a new battery in it and it won't work. They said it can't be fixed. It is a nice keepsake piece and I would like to know if truly can not be fixed.
It is quite hard to fix your warch as it was left for a prolonged time with an old battery in it. This usually causes contact oxidization and sometimes an integrated circuit shortcut. I'm sure that that the movement in your Timex can be replaced as manufacturers usualy keep producing updated versions. Find the decent watchmaker in your area and ask for movement replacement, not repairs.
Expect to pay GB 20 - 30, as movement prices vary and watchmakers job is very skillfull and takes alot of time and patience, respectively it isn't cheap.
Probably the watch itself do not cost that much, but you are paying for very skilled work and at the very end you will get back your precios watch in a nice working order- all this depends on how much you like it.
And the last thing: Don't be fooled by name 'movement replacement', as except this,watchmaker must clean and polish case and bracelet (glass as well if it is made of plastic). New battery is a must as well as testing for correct timekeeping.
Hope this will help.
P.S. Next time you decide to leave your watch without attention for years- take the battery out. Then it will be safe even for 100 years.
