How difficult would a movement exchange on a san martin captain willard be?

This watch has an NH35 that is messing up out of warranty. I had it regulated, but this didn't fix my issue. I figure that by the time I get down to the cause of the issue with this movement, I will have spent much more than the cost of an entirely new NH35. I consider myself pretty handy, but I have never worked on a watch before. If it would be better to have a pro do it, about how much should I expect to pay? Thanks!

Changing out an NH35a movement is really easy for someone that likes to tinker with watches. You will need some basic tools and you will need some training that you can get by watching some DIY YouTube video's. If you aren't interested in learning some watch making skills than it isn't worth doing. My suggestion is to buy the movement you need online and find someone to do the swap. Its not worth the frustration for the average person. You have to spend some time learning basic skills in order to do this swap correctly.
