Are these watches hard to fix?
JaRe
Far from being an expert on these early digi's. It all depends really on the the condition inside. All mine and I have around 12 always have shown some degree of corrosion , not battery leakage that is. Corrosion can vary, however mostly can be clean up . Battery leakage is the killer and if its bad there's not much hope to fix. It helps to spare donor watches for parts and thats what I have. LCD screens are really tough to source. Others will know a lot more than I do. Fault finding is not my strong point. Cheers T.

The reason I was asking was because I found this at a flea market real cheap in good cosmetics condition. The LCD looks stained and not sure about the circuit. I have not got around to sending it to my watchmaker who is presently really full with work. Does not look like a case of a battry change only though.
Thanks for your reply.
