Question about Timberland Watches
I bought my watch in Puerto Rico in 1997. Years ago I took it for repairs to a watch repair store. The attendant said he could repair it. He worked on it but was unable to repair it. I don't think he had the Timberland parts. Is it possible to get a 1997 watch repaired; are parts still available?

Hi Chappie ,
we are the service agent for Timberland watches.
the issue is more to do with parts availablility as the licences has been held by three companies in the passed fifteen years.
if youcan send me a picture of the watch along with details of the fault, i can look into availability of parts etc.

Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

I would be happy to help. The problem is it is impossible to determine the value without seeing the watch(condtion is paramount). your best bet is to ship it Registered mail return receipt requested that way you have proof that it was received. I would think that that $5,000.00 insurance would most probably protect you. email me if you have any questions Donald McPherson CW www.finewatchmaking.com

Anyone who says they can't open your watch is NOT a repairman. Take it to a mom and pop repairman, NOT a big store, because most of the big stores send all their repairs out to someone like the mom and pop store. If you still have problems finding someone please feel free to get ahold of me and I will assist you. Good Luck!!

No. First off no watchmaker has a "parts account" with Seiko. Seiko
only sells watchbands to watchmakers. All other Seiko parts are sold
through supply houses.
Seiko parts are not hard to find most times. The very old Seikos will have parts issues and some of the current styles of Japan only Seikos will not have parts available.
Case tubes for all Seiko watches are not available at all.
Finding parts for Seiko watches requires the use of the watches model number which is on the case back of the watch. The number listed in the title is not a model number. The SKA098 is a retailers number so the retailers can reorder the watch. It does not cross reference for parts.
There are many watchmakers that don't want to service Seiko watches so they can and do make up all kinds of stories as to why it is impossible to repair them and so on.
Actually Seiko is much better about parts supply than any of the Swiss watch companies.
Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Hello Ken, Many thanks for your reply and the information contained therein. I agree Seiko watches are trouble free. Kind regards, Mark."
You do not need to send your watch to FOSSIL for repairs. Just find your nearest watch repair shop and ask watchmaker to replace the coil. It will save money as well.
