Watch and key fob Batteries

Good quality branded versions In Perpignan if anybody knows of an outlet.Supermarkets in Argeles seem to have a limited choice of the cheap variety only.

There is a little shop on the main road where FNAC and Carglass are on (the one that goes direction Airport) the shop is facing the maison de retrait and the hote, just past FNAC

We have our watch batteries replaced in the jewellers in Argeles opposite the brewery.

Thanks for all the info.Years ago a jeweler butchered an Omega I had, so now I always change them myself.Usually it's fairly straight forwards,sometimes.....

My husband always finds getting the back off the problem. We only had one done this week and it is fitted whilst you wait and right in front of you.

I bought some of these recently for my gate keyfobs. Genuine good brand and a fraction of the supermarket price.

If you need to change the battery in a screw back watch you can buy a special tool for the job for less than a fiver:
