I hv not visited the other shop. Tekka is now closed for renovation.
Nice. I have gone past the shop before but never went in. Didn't know they sell watch repair tools. Do they have caseback opener and crystal press? Want to try out battery and crystal change myself

Tried once to change the batteries for a Casio Sea Pathfinder. Messed it up and had to bring it to a watch shop who also messed it up and watch was a total loss. For the next Sea Pathfinder, I had the batteries changed by Mr Goh at K2 who did a good job.

The collection grew as I have not sold any of the Japanese watches I bought. They don't fetch much in the resale market and I don't need to sell them to fund the next purchase which isn't that costly compared to Rolex, Patek etc.
Now if I had only kept the Pateks I sold. Sigh.

My favourite watch.
And Orient is my favourite Japanese brand.
I was impressed when I saw the power reserve increased by just wearing the watch.

Yes they do, look for Roland. You will need a set of screwdriver and pincher too. Most useful.

Shiba Inus. They are the reason that I started wearing one of my Japanese watch as a daily beater.
They are K series i.e. local bred.
This pic brings my Japanese stuff to a conclusion if I'm too lazy to post a pic of the Shiba Inu figurines from Japan.

you can either wait for Tekka to open or go to carousell and look for user vincent2008. He sells watch tools and conduct watch repair class.
