I have a Seiko perpetual calender watch and my battery died. I phoned watch repair at Macy's in Northgate and they told me 1 week and $50 to replace the battery because it had to be sent out. Alex quoted me $30 and did it overnight. (The battery for this particular Seiko IS more expensive than others and re-setting the calender is complicated.) Alex is very knowledgeable about different brands and types of watches, letting us know that kinetic powered watches are not a panacea. Their capacitors need upgrading after about 5 years. Alex is located in the Fred Meyer in Ballard.
