    I recently purchased this cool Time Computer from 1975. Seller stated that it didnt work and needed a battery or repair. . I knew there is a risk but i liked the set with papers and the price was reasonable, so i took a gamble and purchased it.

    Today i got the bad news from my watchmaker. He replaced the battery and nothings goes, and apparnetly this one is on a list of references Omega doesnt repair anymore. So he cant send it to the Bienne for servicing.

    I really want to see this 1975 spaceship flashing its red digits, so i am reaching out for adivse. surely there must be someone somewhere on this planet who knows how to repair it?

    Watch and I are in Switzerland.

    Hi: I see a lot of talk about there is nobody fixing LEDs. Not true - my name is Ed Cantarella, I have been fixing LEDs and LCDs for over 20 years, used to own the forum newdwf.com and run my own site https://www.retroleds.com
    I hold out the bold claim that I have repaired more LED than anyone living or past, simply because of the years where i received over 20 repairs a week. thousands have passed through my hands and I have over 3,000 pieces here. My site has 2 nice TC-1s up.
    LED watch movement(pun?) is still ticking strongly and now we have Hanno Gollek at strikesandspares.de making NEw movements with old displays strapped on, to bring your Pulsar, Hamilton or Omega LED back to life. I ship him dead movements for the parts regularly. You guys need to get out more. Start at newdwf.com
