My friend visiting from the states took her watch to Baci for a new battery.
It was a nice watch , but no Rolex by any means......
Carl charged her $35.00 for a new battery AND told her it was NOT
guaranteed waterproof anymore, as they don't have the equipment to replace and test the O ring!
She could have taken it to any Walmart and had the same thing done for under $5.00!!

Nelthropp and Low. Rob does excellent work. Had a bad experience with Baci and a watch battery.
