Copied and pasted from a newsletter I received. I'm going in for a free battery change (RRP$10)
Hopefully it's useful for someone.

From the 29th May - 7th June, come into any Swatch store for a free master check-up of your beloved Swatch!

    I should forward this on to Tag, see if they'd consider a promotion like this in the future! ;)

      Can you cc omega (same company as swatch in Australia) while you are there..

      I got quoted ~$850 for a routine service!!
      (They want to send it to the fatherland)

        Actually Swatch owns Omega (globally).

        Why would they need to send it back to Switzerland for a routine service?

          its a 1960's automatic watch
          is currently working perfectly and keeping time,
          (hand me down)
          they said that the australian technicians cant do it…
          needs to be sent to germany for a full over haul.
          for 850 I get
          - they take the watch apart and service every piece
          - new glass
          - if things need repair - ?more money
          - includes shipping (at that price i would hope so)
          - 2 year warranty on watch post service.

          sigh
          it's a lot to pay for a watch service - but if it means I will be able to pass it on after - tempted to consider it at some point

          @dr_ rusko:

          If it's an older watch, I would take it to an independent watch maker. They should be able to get you the parts, it may cost less than half what you quoted.

          Newer watches sometimes can't be serviced by independent watch makers as parts are sometimes restricted.

    Does this work at JR Duty free shop-in-shop?

    •  

      It's at Swatch stores.

  •  

    fantastic I have the loops broken on a watch which is why I wasn't wearing it.

  •  

    I wonder if they can polish my Sistem51… It's "glass" is getting a bit scuffed

  •  

    Does that stand for smart watch ?

  •  

    have a 10 year old swatch skin that runs on a $20 battery, thanks OP!

  •  

    Swatch have the worst customer service when it comes to warranty repairs. I had a watch that I owned for one month that I bought on holiday with an international warranty. The loops broke and the leather band peeled. I took it back under warranty and they tried to say it was the perfume I wore. They finally replaced and I never had any problems with the second band. Never again!

  •  

    Only if I had it for my Tissot :-( ran out of battery the other day.

  •  

    There's a good chance my old Swatch is a fake!

      Now you can confirm your doubt!

    Do they do this on the spot? I have their solar powered one from many many years ago (cough.. 20) and uses the screw in type.

    •  

      mine was done on the spot incl all services listed within less than 5 mins at lunchtime.

    Swatch was watches are total garbage, I own three and all broken internally. None of them can be repaired because the internals are sealed.

    I have one that has great sentimental value and when I lived in Switzerland I took it to the service centre and said I would repair it at any cost, the guy said I could buy two new ones for the cost, I said don't care, fix it. Then he admits it can't be done.

    •  

      Sentimental value… I know that feels

    I presume watches other than Swatch's are excluded. Is that correct?

    •  

      Have the same question. How about Flik Flaks?

  •  

    How come the store locator only shows 3 stores in Sydney - Centrepoint, Macquarie Shopping Centre, and the airport? I know there's one in QVB…

  •  

    I lost my battery cover & they replaced with a new one! no question asked, gratz : )

  •  

    Just got mine done at Chadstone.
    Battery change and polish, in and out in 3 minutes.
    Thanks for the heads up OP.

  •  

    Wonder if they'd restore my old Pop Swatch from way back when…

  •  

    Walked in with my 2 watches, got batteries replaced. Attendant at the Melb CBD store counter was curt and a bit condescending though. Said she didnt have any other straps, and said she couldnt help much with the scratches either. Recommended me to goto the chadstone store (wth?)

    Good promo, poor customer service.

    Went to Emporium Swatch Centre and the 3 girls there were lovely. I bought 4, then 2 the next day. Gave branded Renata (swiss) battery replacements, got 1 loop replacement and got the glass faces buffed. All free of charge. Certainly no complaints.

    I too had a Swatch warranty issue (3 months) and Swatch wouldn't honour it, even the Swatch shop assistant who sold me that watch was surprised, but could do nothing. I have not bought a Swatch since…and my advice is to stay away from the clear plastic watches (the battery cover cracks the plastic very easily). However, my metal Swatches' (Irony) track record has been alright. I have 2 still working from '96 (19 years) and '08 (7 years), but 1 dead one (Got in '06 broke '08).

    Piece of advice, you can get cheaper Swatch bands on eBay and ask Swatch to fit them for free. If you need a your watch face buffed (glass), that's free too. Hopefully they run this promo next year as well.
