Familiar watch! We just had our DST returned last weekend, so...
avatar November 02, 2019 01:31PM
I had a handful of quartz watches already worn this week and "turned back the clock", so to speak. But when I looked at two watches I figured had to wear, first the blue Bosch needed a new battery after 2,5 year (a tiny 364) I thought that was not bad, But then I saw my customs extra e-Bay purchase also out of juice, I got angry, that man had been lying for the 2nd time: First offered e-Bay shipping (with customs benefits) and also said, batteries were recently renewed! Angry It was a struggle to replace 2(!!) batteries NOT EASY! A 371 and a 364. When to the Gym with my MR- G200:

After that I struggled to do the replacement, everything but the light button working, found out another functions doesn't work either, so something is blocking contact! Have to open the thing again! Strapped it on and after that the Bosch with it's little Miyota quartz was a piece of cake.

So many hobbies, so little money...
