What do you suggust for a watch under 2k budget?

Is this a good buy?

Tag heuer

https://www.tagheuer.com/en/watches/...waz2113-ft8023
Think the 1.6k in the website is referring to US dollar.

Any watch shop should be able to change, including those watch chain ones

I am afraid of being overcharged. One shop I went to refused to quote a fee. Said need to look at the watch etc. Another shop said minimum $10.

I do not know the normal rate for battery change. These watches are not expensive - normal Quartz. One is ESPIRIT brand and the other is GUESS.

So looking for a place that is confirmed reasonable.

Well if u go by currency rate just 2.2k
If u like tag sure, other model from tag no diff imho
Inside a tag itís running either Eta 2824 or Sellita 200 entry level movement. Spend more you get a 2892. Many watch companies used same thing, brand marketing itís where it gets u

Other brands different story. Go google

I rather go with a classic https://www.stowa.de/en/Flieger/
