Cheers, wondering if anyone knows of any open on a sunday! I'm hoping not to travel too far.

a jeweller in any mall would probably be able to replace a battery.

+ 1

but dont think he is open on Sundays

battery replacement isn't really a "repair" as such - Mr Minit will do it for you, and offers a warranty of 12mths on his batteries.

There's a clock and watch repairer on the corner of Sparks Road and Hoon Hay Road.

If you just need a new battery there is a kiosk in The Riccarton Mall (down the aisle towards Farmers) who replaces batteries; also the jewellers in any Mall would be able to replace a battery, and they would be open on a Sunday.

And don't charge like the greedy jewellers. Mr Min's great.

robyn35, Jan 28, 10:03pm
just make sure who ever changes the battery on a g shock as a pressure machine, if they dont the watch isnt water proof and your warranty will be void

Brillant nice guy, watch batteries $10 fitted

Took my son's waterproof Casio to Mr Minute and he wouldn't do it as it would void the waterprrof part of the warranty.He told me to go to a watchmakers.

mi34, Jan 28, 10:35pm
I went to Mister Minute at Northlands was alot cheaper than the jewellers

If you want them pressure tested because you use them in the water then you'll have to go to a proper watch repairers rather than a booth, otherwise you won't get the job done properly.

Westende Jewellers - Roger Kelso and his son had their shop in the CBD lost their building and they have relocated to Sydenaham.Last week I took an item of jewellery in for repair it is so good to see they are back in business :O)

redphoenix3, Jan 29, 10:05pm
+1 especially with a baby G . they need to be pressurised which is why it costs more .i go here for my baby G http://www.ilam-watchmakers.co.nz/ good fast service i think it is about $40!pascoes sends their stuff to these guys too. (which if you dont want to travel you take your watch to thejeweller and they ship it there anyway as they dont do on site)
