This morning was the time for a movement exchange in a Skagen watch from Whittlesey, near Peterborough.
The customer suggested the watch was stopped and was no longer working. After checking the battery hadn't come loose I confirmed the watch was no longer working.
The best solution is a movement exchange. By doing this a like for like movement is replaced into the watch. Extending the like of the piece for the customer.
I also gave the glass a quick polish to remove superficial scratches.
The glass in the removing tool. This glass is plexiglass.
The part on the left is the new movement. The part on the right is the old movement. As you can see, they're a like for like replacement.
