Watch Repair reviews in Minneapolis

  • I brought in a watch to replace the battery.  They did, but she said they couldn't push the buttons to set the time.  (I tried and couldn't either). She asked did I have any problems with the buttons before?  I muttered confusedly something about some being hard to push.  She said, WELL, WE WON'T CHARGE YOU, and wished me luck with it.

     Later I remember that yes, as the battery was dying a few days before that, I did fiddle with trying to push the buttons and some couldn't be pushed.  I attributed that to the watch not being responsive to the button pushes because of the lack of a battery.

    Anyway, they charged me nothing.  I was also happily surprised that setting the watch was included in the battery replacement.

  • Leo Padron, the owner of the company is a great guy to work with, and really upfront and honest about his service, costs, etc. I brought a late-1960's Seiko, and a very old 1930's chronograph in for Leo to service. The first thing he did was go through each watch in detail, and then provide me with a broken down quote with line-item pricing for each project. He asked for my approval on the work and the pricing prior to moving forward with each. I really appreciated the detail.
    On the Seiko, he did a great job doing a complete restoration on the movement, buffing out all of the scratches on the crystal, and polishing up the case and band. It looks almost like new, but with just enough "patina" left that you know it is vintage. It looks AWESOME, and my Dad will be super excited to get this back as a gift for Christmas (it was his watch, that he had purchase while he was serving in the Viet Nam war).
    On the older chronograph, Leo kept me in the loop all along the way, which was really important to me as this watch holds a lot of value to my family. He even provided pictures as he completed steps in the restoration! Also, as this project was more exploratory, Leo always kept my budget in mind and kept me informed about what could and should be done, and the costs associated. In the end, there is one piece that needs to be remanufactured, so the restoration isn't complete yet, but I will definitely be using Padron Watch Co. in the future.
    Lastly, Padron Watch Co. has some of their own watches out, and they are really great too. I've got my order in for the latest release, and can't wait to get it.
    I will definitely use Padron Watch Co. in the future for watch service, and will be waiting for their other new watches to come out!

  • I have several watches for various activities - dress, travel, running, water sports - and getting the batteries changed has always been a
    hassle. Jewelers are too expensive, and department store watch departments have ruined a couple of watches. Decided to give The Watch Shop a try and was totally satisfied. Batteries changed in a couple of minutes, and price was much cheaper than I've experienced anywhere else.

  • I had tried to replace the watch battery on the Fossil watch myself, but I could not get the back to snap on again. I brought it into a Walmart and they could not get it on either. I used to adjust watches in a department store and I remembered being told that Fossil watches were difficult. I brought it into The Fixery and they got it working again. I just had to wait a few minutes for the work to be done. I would definitely use their services again.

  • I did not pay Don for repairing a watch. What tremendously impressed me was his professionalism and his integrity. He carefully examined my stalled watch. He could have gone through the motions and charged me for fixing an unfixable watch. Instead he courteously told me not to waste my money doing that. When I have a "fixable" watch I will be sure to go to him.

  • I was given my grandfather's pocketwatch, which didn't work, and I wanted to get it fixed. Most stores don't seem to care about sentimental value, so I was looking for someone that knew older pieces and wouldn't try to sell me a new watch. When we first pulled up, like many others we were a little unsure we were in the right place, but there is a sign pointing you to the right door. Don took a look at my watch and assessed that the mainspring was broken, the quartz was in poor shape, and that it was missing a loop to attach a chain.
    He quoted me $175, which seemed reasonable to me given the age of the watch and the amount of work needed. He encountered a problem in his work; the serial number stamped by Elgin didn't match their records for what model it was. It did take longer than originally mentioned because of the need to get different parts than the manufacturer originally indicated, but Don didn't charge me for the extra work involved.
    Don explained when I should followup on maintenance, and explained just how careful I should be with the watch. Although he doesn't sell chains, he was able to give me a few recommendations on where I could find one; they're not a terribly common item for stores to cary anymore.
    I'm very happy with his work, and will certainly return the next time I need maintenance done.

  • Donn fixed not only my current watches (battery replacement, a few minor things) but also gave me an honest appraisal of whether the old German pocket watch was worth the fixing. He ordered and modified a specific special part for my aunts' old jeweled watch, which has sentimenatl value if none in money. Excellent work. HIghly recommended. (Yes, the Watch Shop is on the side of the blue house. Go in and ring the bell!)
  • Pulsar watch, about 10 years old, intermittently stopped working, or was very slow. I had already changed the battery, but still had the same problem. I found this place on Angie's List. Yes, it's a small blue house without a big sign in front, but who cares; the guy was excellent. He hardly said a word, but after I explained the problem, he took the watch, cleaned it, made a few adjustments and handed it back to me. He said he really wasn't sure if this would fix it and if it still didn't work, I would need a new watch. As it turns out, the watch still doesn't work well, but he did not charge me anything for trying to fix it. I appreciated his honesty.

  • The owner inspected our jewelry, made notes on condition and recommended the repair on one ring the others he help select the proper size and wrote our estimates up. He said it would be about a week and it was to the day. When we picked up our jewelry it was done correctly and polished . He met his estimates and the service was stellar, our rings exceeded expectations they were so beautifully done they looked new. He has done some work for us in the past and it's refreshing to see the quality is great as always. We highly recommend this Jeweler.

  • This was a very interesting watch repair shop. Located in a small house in St. Louis Park, the gentleman who owns and runs the shop has been working in the area of watch repair for 40 years. He worked for Timex at one time and has a world of experience. I called for help and he invited me to come in that very day. I showed up and 10 minutes later walked out with my watch band fixed. It was an excellent job (much better than the last time I tried to repair one of these watches elsewhere) and he only charged me $5.00. If you have a watch in need of repair, search out this gentleman and be amazed yourself.
    BTW - this form makes no sense - why do I need to insert an address and year that house was built to enter information about a watch shop - Angie - please fix this.
