“Over priced and shoddy work”

Written on: 24/07/2016 by Louisew1310 (1 review written)

We dropped into the Chester branch today for a simple battery replacement of a mid range watch. We paid £49.95 for a new battery and re-seal. Previously been charged a lot less for a battery replacement. Upon collection we noticed several scratches which were not previously there. NEVER AGAIN!… Read Full Review

My Tag battery used to cost £49.95. You have put it up to £79.95! Also you no longer guarantee it's waterproof. I cannot ever recommend you… Read Full Review

“Excellent service”

Written on: 13/06/2016 by FerrisBluer (1 review written)

This was a very pleasant experience. The girl from Cheshire at the counter was attentive, pleasant, polite and charming as well as working efficiently - she had the ability to deal with other customers whilst dealing with one customer directly without annoying anyone. Not often you come away with such a positive impression. There was nothing to dislike whatsoever… Read Full Review

“Work done at The WATCH Lab”

Written on: 13/06/2016 by 301Thomson (1 review written)

I have always been happy with work done at the Watch Lab and over a long period of time. I have taken many watches there to have batteries replaced and in various instances, to get repair work done. (I do have quite a few watches and value them all, so am not prepared to take any of them to just 'any old jewellery shop' to have the work done). I feel I can trust the expertise at the Watch Lab over and above taking a watch to a jewellery shop. This includes asking them to change a battery… Read Full Review

“Wonderful Watch Lab”

Written on: 12/06/2016 by Logans1949 (1 review written)

Recently I had a DG ladies watch strap altered by The Watch Lab. The job was done quickly by friendly and skilled staff. I was pleased with the result. My late husband always took his watches there for new batteries and also purchased a watch for my Christmas present one year. I have also gone there with my watches many times, mainly for batteries but also for a watch strap and repairs. I have also found the staff at the Manchester branch to be very efficient and helpful and would recommend… Read Full Review

“Tag battery replace”

Written on: 12/06/2016 by Fitzgerald1980 (1 review written)

Paid £95 for a replacement battery for my Tag Heuer, guy I dealt with at the Silverburn store was brilliant, however when I received my watch back the backplate was pretty badly scratched. You would expect when paying £95 for a battery replacement that they could at least look after your fairly expensive watch.. I could have taken it to my local non approved guy and had it done at a fraction of the cost but thought I would pay the extra and get the so called experts to do it, never… Read Full Review

“Time stood still for the longest time”

Written on: 10/06/2016 by Redcetera (1 review written)

The Watch Lab in Southampton was just brilliant, we took a number of watched in for new batteries. We also took my Fosdil watch in, which I'd had for years, as it had lost its winder. Although it needed to go to the clinic, he was confident it could be fixed. I was so pleased as it was my favourite of all my watches. He duly called once it was back and we collected. The Eatch Lab is a great service and I will use again when needed. Time is now moving well. Thank you… Read Full Review

“Outstanding service and very knowledgeable”

Written on: 10/06/2016 by big laddie (2 reviews written)

I have used this outlet twice in a fairly short space of time , the first to replace a battery and clean on a prized omega watch and laterly on a treasured rotary. I have to say at first i was sceptical that anywhere bar the manufacturer could deliver the service and quality i expected but i was wrong. These guys are not only very courteous but also knowledable and friendly. 1st class service and would definetly recommend to others… Read Full Review

“Complete rip off”

Hi didn't even look at me as he knew the cost was so ridiculous. Please dont go there i had my batteries replaced for £8 each and why i waited. These guys need stopping Best regards … Read Full Review

“Diabolical customer service”

Written on: 27/05/2016

Brent Cross Watch Lab I handed over my 18 year old Tag Heuer which they happily accepted with no watch face issues, to have new batteries fitted and paid £65. When I collected it the no 9 luminous marker was missing and laying loose inside the face of the watch! When I challenged the so called 'technicians' as to why my watch was damaged they initially said that it was because the watch was old and when i wouldn't accept this, then tried to suggest that the luminous marker was loose when… Read Full Review

“Avoid the Arndale Store in Manchester ”

Written on: 27/05/2016

I visited the Watch Lab store in the Arndale Centre Manchester to have a link removed from my swiss watch. The assistan quoted me £39.99 to remove one link from my watch. I thought it was rather excessive and felt because I owned a watch that cost over £5000 this did not constitute such a charge. The assistant started waffling on about cleaning the watch and cleaning the bracelet ect ect I had not requested this service and felt he was just trying to up sale me to more services that I did not… Read Full Review

“The gentleman made me feel about 1cm tall!!”

Written on: 16/05/2016 by mackydee78 (1 review written)

Had a link removed from my watch which cost £9.95 anyway an extortionate price!! It came with a guarantee so thought ok...., took it back as the link failed and my watch fell to the floor....! He told me that it would cost another £9.95..... I said even though the work was guaranteed?? His reply was that I had caught it and broke it myself!!! He didn't believe me that it just fell from my wrist!!! Was all my fault therefore work not guaranteed!! His attitude made me feel about 1cm tall!!… Read Full Review
