    Watch stopped working

    My son was given a swiss engineer jaragar watch made in P.R.C and it just stopped working. We have no idea how it works so don't know how to figure it out. Please help. His older brother got it from somewhere while in afghanistan, but that's all we know other than what is above.

    It's a 20 dollar watch, I think its life has run its natural, albeit short course.

    It may not be worth it to fix.If you have a good honest watch repairer you trust ask him or her to evaluate it.

    Ozy is right. The watch's price is about $20USD meaning that its cost was probably much less.

    If you manage to find a watchmaker that's willing to work on Chinese movements, the charge will probably be at least three times the value of the watch. If the piece holds an overwhelming amount of sentimental value, then do it. If not, it would be cheaper (and much faster) to buy a replacement. Ebay has thousands of inexpensive, Chinese watches.

    I look forward to the day I stop working. Retirement will be relaxing, full of fishing and loafing off. I don't think I'm a Chinese knock-off though - but I better ask my parents at Christmas dinner to be sure.

    I'm quite certain that it's the mainspring or balance wheel hairspring, don't waste any money on it. Keep it for sentimental purposes Bud.
