The battery died in my everyday watch a while ago, but it was lockdown and so I couldn't travel to the next town where there is a jeweller who fixes watches. Even if I had disregarded the rules and driven there, the shop wouldn't have been open.
I have therefore been wearing my best watch, which though much nicer than the everyday watch has a couple of problems. It was a special gift from my daughter for my 60th birthday and I'm always worried about damaging it when doing stuff and it has a very minimalist dial, so telling the time accurately is not easy. So eventually I decided to see if I could change the battery myself.
Step one was to remove the back of the everyday watch, which I managed successfully. Using the hand lens (x10 magnification) I could read the teeny weeny numbers and letter and thus order the correct battery from Amazon. The pack of two arrived this morning and with a bit of fiddling, I managed to put the battery in place and get the back on again.
It seems to be keeping correct time, so that was a win.
