    Citizen Quartz Crystron

    Hi All,

    This is my first post, however I have lurked for some time now. I also apologize if this is not the correct place to post this and would gladly post in the correct place if necessary.
    I recently received this watch from my father.At first I thought it just needed a new battery, however the local Jeweler I brought it to tried swapping in two different batteries to no avail.He said it could be fixed, but would cost somewhere between $50-150.My question is whether or not this watch has any intrinsic value or is all the value sentimental?
    Thank you for the help!

    Hi and welcome to WUS. Your watch probably dates back to the 1970's. I believe some Crystron watches are collectible in part because they use a very accurate quartz movement. You should ask the experts on the High Accuracy Quartz Watch Forum here on WUS. You should find out what kind of repairs the watch shop is considering. For example are they using a new generic quartz movement? Or repairing the old?

    edit: One last thought. Some older quartz movements have to be shorted to get the movement running again. The watch will not run until this is done.
