A first rate repair conducted in a trustworthy manner.

We took my wife's Oris wrist watch in for repair it would not keep running.
It was agreed that a service would be the starting point and depending on the findings we would be advised as whether it was viable to continue the repairs. We were given an estimate and his ended up as the price paid. The watch keeps perfect time now and other parts were replaced besides just the service. We had previous experience elsewhere of a repair to the same watch and the repair price here was less expensive by some margin. Excellent service and repair has been our experience here.

Clock repair efficiently carried out.

The proprietor of the Watch Box has just completed an excellent job of repairing one clock for us, and was also helpful with valuation and advice about two other antique clocks. He did the job quickly and the charge was reasonable. There is free parking very nearby (just down from Bushey Station on the opposite side of the road. Great to have someone available with these skills. Thanks, Watch Box!

Excellent Service from The Watch Box

We had previously brought my wife's Rotary watch to a few different watch shops and jewellers to get the batteries replaced. However, they could not do the work on it because of its unusual design - it's got two reversible faces and it takes two batteries.

I called The Watch Box yesterday and arranged to bring the watch to them today. They were able to complete the change of batteries and remove a link within a couple of hours.

I've now got a happy wife and a watch shop that I will certainly be using again. Thank you The Watch Box.

Thank you for your kind words. The shoe repairer and retail jewellers sometimes get it right. However, a professional watchmaker will always know what he is doing. Thanks.

I had a problem with a vintage watch I had bought online as gift for my son. I contacted The Watch Box and the owner said he would try to help . At very short notice he was able to do a running repair until we could source a replacement part in the new year .
Very pleased that he sorted out my predicament.
A genuine professional watch repairer who was willing to help.
Thank you.Quick
