Should I attempt changing my watch battery or take it to a jeweler?

I have this expensive watch with a crystal face and the battery is dead. I was talking to a friend and he told me on this watch I should take it to a Jeweler because it takes special tools to get off the back. He also said I will faint when they give me the bill to do it. What do you people think? Thanks Rich
It's a Tissot 1853 Stainless steel if that matters.

Richard, if my memory serves me right your watch has a solid back. I think the process involves removing the crystal and the movement from the front to get to the battery. I remember reading something about this in a watch forum. On your trips to the orient I would make friends with a jeweller as I have experienced that the prices in Asian countries for watch repair (even top tier watches) are much cheaper.

Maybe you can find the manual for that watch here. In any case the price of those watches would tell me to take it to an expert. If you mess it up you have an expensive pile of junk.
