After I had the battery replaced the watch is being slow
I had it send to Sydney for the replacement and since it came back, the time is always behind. After complaining to the company, they told me that they would have to do a service for more than $650..... I already paid 150 for the battery... any suggestions?

Of all things, you should always just try replacing the battery in your digital watch. These are really inexpensive and most watch stores will install your battery for you for free if you need help, but the process is very simple too. Most watches contain instructions on the back of the watch for replacing the battery. You opening the back panel carefully and review what is inside. You should see a battery that is small and round and metallic in color. Very carefully remove this battery and push the new battery into the exact same position, as the old one and it should fit into place. You should then replace the back panel and try out your watch. There are many good watches that were tossed away due to just a dead battery.
If your digital watch has gotten wet, try opening it up and removing the battery and airing it out. Use a really soft Q-tip to get at areas where there might be sensitive material that can damage easily. Try to dry up as much of the liquid with the Q-tip as possible and let the watch sit unused for a good while. Most digital watches will work if you get to the wet damage quickly enough and dry it up.
Because I know I will, I wouldn't do that...I'd feel bad. I have extra batteries for that watch...as long as you accept a small percentage...of failure...I'll always send the watch back..with a new battery. I'm just helping the general populous...if things are tight financially. I recommend a trained professional to replace that battery. If you have the money go to a trained-expert watch shop..get a quote...if it's too much $ send to me.
who set set it these have a 5yr guarantee so send it back to citizen ,it may need a new capacitor this is like a battery but it stores the power from solar panel on the face of your watch these always need replacing at sometime within the 5yrs. because it can cause the functions of the watch to malfunction. if you not got the guarantee try a good repairer they may be cheaper then sending bk without guarantee
if you are in the sydney or the melbourn or pearth area there are several watch dealers avaiable for you just look up the watch maker and the model of the watch and look for local dealer ok ?

This usually means the battery is dying. Usually the backs on these are very tight, and the back has to be taken off to replace the battery. You might be able to get the back off without damaging the watch, but you probably will not get it back on without breaking the crystal. Best thing to do is take it to a reputable watch repair place or jewelry shop and have them replace the battery for you. Before they begin, make sure they are willing to replace the crystal for free for you if they break it!
Your watch is need to clean an replaced the old oil in gear shafting that is the common problem of a watch when the old oil is sticky already thats makes the gear moves slowly and your watch is always late . If ever your watch was already clean and replaced new oil and still working slowly then the problem is in the circuit board is near to run out its needs to replaced whole circuit board so its better again. I know this because im a technician in Rolex service center before. Feel free to ask whatever the result.
