Can any watch sexpert points to me where can I change my Hamilton leather watch strap at a reasonable price?

Thanks in advance!
DIY - free.

I paid city chain $5 to resize my bracelet, so I wouldn't be surprised if they charged you around that just to remove your strap lol.

Tong Sia told me that if I send my watch (mm300) back to Japan for a thorough check of mechanisms will cost around $700 plus. Actually my bezel got jam but luckily the techs able to solve it for me so no need to send out to Japan as they told me initially. But the point is why so exp to service in Japan? Almost like service a Rolex.

Try Mr Goh , the one stop seiko service man. Unless you are keeping the watch in a long run, service, otherwise sell it off at carousell.

Watch shop resizing fee is from free to $5. Usually for $2 thought. I hope you gotten good service experience from city chain.

Yes, I have go to Mr Goh before that. Told him that my watch bezel needed great effort to turn. He take a look and say it's normal for diving watch. I didn't pursue with him though I know it is a problem cannot be ignore. That's why I go back to TS.

Firstly, the shipping, insurance and handling.

Secondly, Japan standard of living not cheap. I think if they can handle it in Singapore, it would probably be significantly cheaper.

Any watches older than 3 yrs is natural out of warranty.
If u want warranty buy new! Buy used want warranty must go with pre own place to pay for premium.
Buy on carousell just expect no warranty and pay that $500-1k to service to buy the 18mth or 1 year warranty if u really want omega warranty.
Else for a peace of mind ship to 3rd party service place to get it done to get check out and clean, u also get 1yr warranty for their work

I see. Saw quite a few piece of beauty on carousel but worry about the maintenance part

Will consider getting from AD then.

Thanks for your enlightenment.
