So some of you may have been following the saga of my rediscovery of my 18th birthday gift -- a 2nd Generation Citizen EcoDrive Skyhawk Blue Angels Titanium, which was dead as a doornail, and which I was trying to figure out what to do with. See:
Unfortunately, the shop that I brought the watch to mislead me somewhat and indicated that they'd have been able to replace the crystal with sapphire in addition to swapping out the capacitor. Turns out that wasn't the case, so when I found that out, I was left looking for another option. Thanks to @Max, and the DIY Watch Club kit that I won in the giveaway, I worked up the courage to do the work to resuscitate the watch myself. I figured, what's the worst that could happen, right? I couldn't kill the watch any further.
So I ordered the parts and tools that I needed from Amazon, and I'm pleased to report that:
Not gonna lie...I'm kind of proud of myself. I've never changed a watch battery before.
My problem isn't that I want a watch....it's that I want all the watches.
