In the meantime; just a heads up for kirium owners; I managed to buy a new leather strap and I will be approaching a leather maker to see if it is possible to make one.. Fingers crossed again!!!
A question for all the experts here:
I have a Tag Heuer Kirium F1 and the backlight has stopped working. Tag says it needs a whole new movement, which I am not sure I believe- it may need a new LCD or a new ETA 400 circuit, but the rest of the functions work so I think it may just be the crown. I am not watchmaker, but I wonder if anyone has a view on this and or experience as to what the problem is?
Also and if I can get my hands on a et e20.321 movement, could I replace it myself or would it just be too difficult without special tools- I mean I can invest in a watch hand remover but if I need a dozen things it may not be worth it.
TAg wants £600 to repair it, which is well above it's replacement value.
In the alternative, does anyone know a good watchmaker who could repair/replace the movement for me at something like a decent price? I can get the parts if we need them.
TAG Heuer :
2000 Classic auto -silver

Carrera -1st re-issue -solid gold
Monaco -1st re-issue
this is my Kirium. this is the worst thing that can happen to a Kirium. I am stuck and I am not going to pay 200$ for straps
New here! My Kirium says "Hi!"...
Hi, here's my Kirium. I use it as my daily beater. With a quick polish it always comes up looking like new.
I used to have an F1 too but sold it to buy a link calibre 16. I'll buy another if I can find one at the right price. Same goes for the Ti5 but it has to be a chronograph.
