    Canít be 100% certain without stripping a watch down and inspecting it, but thereís a good chance that this watch will still be fine. My views sometimes conflict with the conventional watch repair...

    Apps on phones etc are a waste of time for detecting whether a watch has been magnetised. The case doesn`t get magnetised, its the internal components that are affected and it doesn`t take much to...
