That said, its good to see that it is not complicated and if at all your watch creates an issue, service should not take longer. What do you think of this ? Are the watch internal looking cool ? Which One did you buy if you have already placed an order. Do share with us on comments.

Note : We don’t recommend you doing it at all and we hold no responsibility if you damage your watch doing this. And if you plan to do, make sure to have the right tool to open it. The list of tools used in the tear down is already available on the links above.
