CWC fatboy 1980

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I'm new to the forum and in need of some advice.

I have a 1980 fatboy from my late dad. It had a new battery in December and I've been wearing it every day, but it stopped last night.

I've tried to find out as much as I can about them, it's not been easy but is it worth repairing if possible? I've had a new battery put in this afternoon but nothing, so i've left it for a second person to look at tomorrow. Sentimentally it's worth very much to me, but I'm hoping you guys will be able to give me your opinion on how far I might go to get it fixed?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks scottswatches, I appreciate that. I've read about Ron England as someone who repairs them, would you know of anywhere else? I take it I'd need a military watch specialist.

Ronald did mine about 6 months ago, couldn't be more pleased with it. 

I initially contacted CWC site who directed me to Silvermans who sent me to Ronald. I had to have a replacement movement due to lack of knowledge on my behalf four years ago.

Always worth repairing if its achievable when its of sentimental value.  :thumbs_up:
