Replacing battery of wristwatch

Hello everyone

Where is it possible to have the battery of a wristwatch replaced - preferably not in an expensive watch shop.

And how much does it cost approximately?

Thank you!

I know of no place that would replace it except a watchmaker's shop. Should cost in the region of 5-10 Euros. Where are you located? Coming from Zurich, are you really worried about prices in Austria?

I guess many shops can change that.

I always go to this shop in the 06th district , depending where you are staying.

They might be able to change it at a reasonable price one of the little cellphone-shops you can find everywhere.
