    You seem to acquire a new profession ;-) May be you should send your CV to ETA or one of the other watch makers in Switzerland. From what I heard there is a shortage of professional watch makers. BTW: As far as I know, Wenger does not make watches. Their are companies producing watches for particular brands.

    Here's a link to the quartz watch repair question/answer on Poor Man's Watch Forum. It appears that Ricky Lee is the go to guy for watch repair help/tips.


    See image of the tools that were used to replace the movement (5x eye loop, tweezers, screw driver, watch case back remover, hand puller, battery and movement, mylar face protector). All these tools are essential. Don't expect to be good at this right away. There is an eye hand practice learning curve. Patience is a must.

    After three days the new ETA 805.121 quartz movement is still spot on :)
