    This will help me consolidate all my videos under one roof rather than maintaining two separate systems, and it will also help clean up WRT a bit.

    • Good evening everyone. I am new to this forum and i can see we have some outstanding experts on the site. brand new to watch repair and looking to get some advice. I purchased an Omega seamaster quarts 1342 watch (not currently working and not tested) as it was a bargain and understand that 329 is the equivalent of the original mercury battery used when the watch was manufactured? I am hoping the battery change will mean it is functional but in the event it does not work, how easy/costly is it to repair. (I’ve heard parts can turn this bargain into a money pit) would anyone in this community willing to have a go at fixing it after i try battery change? paid service of course. any help advice would be much appreciated thank you   
    • Thanks for the responses.  It's nice to see a consensus as it gives me confidence with what to do next.  I noted also the dirty read on the timegrapher as @clockboy pointed out and will see if I can clean that up a bit.  Apologies for not responding earlier- my wife's Mini Cooper blew up and the repair has kept me quite busy and away from the desk!
    • Well done wls1971, it was made in Japan. I did not repair it as it was easier to make the inside of the case fit a new German Regular movement that is of a bit better quality. Also added 2 new bellows as the originals had high pitch cuckoo and sounded terrible. 
    • Simple but effective.
      I presume the contacts are the weak point of the design.
