Goumenos jewellers in Paralimni square should be able to - it's opposite
the church and a couple of doors down from the taxi office.

Cheap batteries can damage your watch, not worth it.

Some years ago, I regularly passed Seiko's service centre for UK in Guildford,
where they serviced my watch etc and Stated when giving it back, "No waterproof watch after opening can ever be guaranteed to be waterproof thereafter"

I would imagine the high end brands do guarantee their watches as waterproof

My watch has had the back off several times and it never leaves my wrist. So in the shower or swimming not a problem.

Hi Roy, I would definitely recommend Goumenos as Steves' first post.
We have used them on several occasions both for watch batteries, and for buying items of jewellery etc..

Tried other jewellers first, but ended up there!

Regards to all, Jim

Re post 12.
Blossom,
The Seiko Divers watch mentioned was not cheap!!
As stated the Seiko Service technician said it is hit/miss for the waterproof integrity.

With respect Seiiko divers watches are 2-3 hundred euros, and if a seiko service technician told me that their Divers watch had waterproof integrity issues, I would of gone back to were I bought it from and demanded my money back.
