    actually, using a hammer is a bad way to remove the pin and collar from a bracelet... esp when these are available for cheap...

    I would have to respectfully disagree as the above shown tool is not good enough to remove pins if the pins are tight, in brand new watches especially from my experience. when it it too tight, the pin of the tool might slip and scratch the bracelet. but to each his own at the end of the day.

    that one is a borrowed pic. i bought mine in shenzhen for RMB10 in 2009 to use on omega and seiko watches. you can buy them on ebay or locally as part of a basic watch enthusiast kit (with hammer, tweezers, spring bar removal tool, 2 types of case back opener, watch holder, etc).

    i bought a similar kit for ~$20 many years ago (i think 2005). try looking in the garage forums here... i think someone's selling it.

    Default Repair of watch?

    Hi,

    I've got an old mechanical watch from the 60's and was wondering where in singapore I can get it fixed? I heard about some old guy with a push cart in chinatown, is he still around?

    Regards.

    you can consider approaching HJ watch or Chuan Watch for assistance.

    alternatively, you can walk around people's park complex and look for shop that offers servicing, they may be able to help

    Default Just try reputable watch shop...

    It cost me less than $800 to service/repair/polish my old man air-king from reputable watch shop which I bought for him in ~2012... The crown got clicking sound and the winding stem cannot wind. One joker in lucky plaza (I think, the one beside CK tang), quote me 1.2k to the same thing. Emailed/called chuan and they quote me less than $900 before seeing the watch. But as I never interact with them physically and too cumbersome to go kallang area, decided to check it out at reputable shop for my ease, I think can get even lower quote for the everything but just too lazy to go around asking so just settle for the reputable shop,
