Default Help with my Citizen Cosmotron

Need some help with my Transistorized Citizen Cosmotron.

During a battery change I lost one of the battery retaining clip screws (not insurmountable) and snapped off the other in the watch (that's the big problem).

I don't have the tools/knowledge to extract the broken screw and am hesitant to drop off my (kinda unique) baby to just any watchmaker. After all it's a transistorized freakin' watch! I'm sure it's a relatively easy job for a skilled craftsman, but my forte is wooden furniture, not itsy bitsy, teeny weeny, watch screws.

Advice? Directions?

Thanks in advance!

Here's where the broken screw is (circled in red)

"Oh! The bitter thought to scan
All the loneliness of man:-
Nature, by magnetic laws,
Circle unto circle draws,
But they only touch when met,
Never mingle -- strangers yet"

Strangers Yet

Seiko Kid (Rob) just received a nice endorsement for some recent work he did on a digital timepiece for another forum member. You might PM him for advice.

Good luck with it.
