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!

You will need tools to remove the hands. There should be plenty of YouTube videos of people replacing NH3x movements. It's pretty straight forward, but requires fine motor skills and good eyesight. Have you worked with really small or delicate parts in the past?
