Hello all. Newbie here. While I have a fair amount of experience with electronics, I don't with watches.
A while back I inherited a Citizen C300 Navihawk that had been unused for years. I decided to try replacing the battery myself; bought a battery and opening tool, no problems. At some point I dropped the watch (about a metre onto hard wood) and the digital section went wonky, and one of the hands came off. I managed to do an all-reset, and put the hand on again. Good job I thought. Until months later I tried to use the alarm, and found it had stopped working.
Thanks to forums, I suspected I during one of my back-openings I had let the sounder contact to fall out. I never found it :-(
So now I am trying to source the part (903-156). I thought it would be easy, but it seems not. Various watch repair shops I have been to won't try and get the part for me, they want to send the watch away for a "service". Got a quote from Esslinger in the US, but the postage seems a little high for such a small part.
Anyone know of a place in the UK I could try?
TIA - Nick
