Wristwatches are becoming a thing of the past. They used to be functional pieces of jewelry that was essential to anyone’s wardrobe. While still functional most people use their ever-present cell phone to check the time. Watches have become strictly optional and more about style than function. This disparity has led to the rise of poorly made and cheap timepieces.

We see a variety of watches under the $100 price range that are in constant need of repair. That is not to say there are not good and inexpensive watches out there, read reviews before you buy. If your watch breaks outside of the manufacturer’s warranty period (typically one year) then weigh the options of repair over replacements. In many cases Drummond Jewelers can repair your watch for less than $20, with a typical battery change only $8. If the price exceeds 50% of the value of your watch, then consider replacement. Some of the better names in the industry are Citizen, Bulova, Seiko and a few others which have long track records of reliability in most cases. These will set you back $250-750 but they are likely to be on your wrist working properly for many years.
