I sure wish I could just get one that worked! I know the guy that sold me the watch knew it was broken already, he said it worked the last time he used it and it just needed a battery, and he would do it himself, but he didn't know how to open it, BUT the inside was cracked where the battery fits, so he had to've known.
Normally I could fix it myself, avoiding the tiny wires with my new knowledge, and reattach the circuits over the crack, but this watch has a little black plastic face glued down over everything, so I can't do that.
The best option would be to do like sig suggested, find a working module and put it in, don't know where to find one at a CHEAP price though.
For the right price, I'd sell you my watch. It's an off-brand, but it works. It's neat, but it's not my style and I enjoy the search and acquisition phase the most.
These guys apparently repair/replace LED watch modules. I'm thinking about saving up some money and sending my watches to them. I got an e-mail back saying it's about $136 each for repair and they come with a 1 year warranty!

What do they do there again?
Germany, eh. I noticed there's some folks in England that will send you a replacement module but only if your watch is Pulsar, Hamilton or Omega. It's £99.95 which is $170 USD. And a how-to vid to replace the module ...
