Anything can be fixed . The question is would you pay the cost which would be determined by what's broke. Am guessing your watchmaker determined the cost to fix great than the value or beyond his capabilities.
^ Yeah, I hear you. I do really like the watch. And I could put a different strap on it to make it different from the other one. I can't bring myself to toss it and I just don't want it to set in my watch box unused. I only paid like $40 for it. So, even if it cost $100 to get it fixed, I guess that wouldn't be to bad.
Probably cheaper and easier to put a new crystal on the working one. I think that is possibly a Seagull ST2505 movement you have there, so you could ask your watchmaker about buying a new one and having that fitted as an option. But as you can't really get spares for those Chinese movements it means they are more difficult and would take a lot longer to repair (so hence cost a lot more money)
Pix ? Really hard to imagine how it is.

This poor Timex looks very unhappy...the balance bridge is unattached , and there's no way--in the Universe we inhabit-- that this could happen, unless someone deliberately unscrewed it...so: time to scout around for another Timex...this one's on life-support!
I had a mentor who started at Kodak, went to Hamilton during the second war as a prototypist, then Bulova prototyping, finally Timex after the other American companies all went kaput. He actually worked on the Indiglo protos. Spent a lot of time in China and said he liked his time at Timex the most: making decent durable watches for a fair price. He'd be sad to see how it's gone.
