This company will pop up at the top of most watch repair Google searches and look out. They offer free shipping and estimates. I sent two Festina watches in for battery replacement. Both watches worked fine, just the batteries died. Their Free shipping format is easy and a trap. The estimate for repair on both watches included an overhaul, for $134.99 for one and $154.99 for the other, after the lowered the price. Also $49.99 for battery, another $49.99 for gaskets and seals.

All communication only takes place via the website. Adam Carpentieri did send me an email over my request for a lower estimate, but I could not return an email to him or call and speak with him.

The overhauls was more for the watches then I paid for them.

I rejected the estimate and found the free shipping no longer applied.
1. I had three choices. Repair the watches at the very high prices.
2. Give them the watches.
3. Pay over $17.00 for shipping and handling for them to return them.

I choose to have the watches returned rather then see them show up on eBay I'd bet in a month or two running just fine with a new battery installed.

One watch running fine with new battery

AUTHOR: RKWOLF - (United States of America)

One of the two watches is now running just fine after taking it to a local watch repair shop in New York City. Cost for new battery and install. $10.00.

The rebuttals are true. Those items were in the fine print on their website. Just beware.
