“bulova accutron destroyed ”

Written on: 08/06/2017 by rmtmtt (1 review written)

Hi all, I ' m terribly sorry but everyone should know this. I brought a (beloved, been gifted from a special person that we recently lost) bulova accutron. The watch was 4 years old and was accidentally bashed on the floor because the strap mechanism failed. The watch stopped working. I brought it to the watch in Leicester. They kept it for nearly 6 months... I called several times to know the situation or any date to be delivered. I had may watch back 6 months later.... Was "working" but the… Read Full Review

“First Visit”

Written on: 02/06/2017 by Mathewb44 (1 review written)

I went to the store in Highcross shopping centre Leicester and asked about replacing the pin that holds the buckle to the strap on my Casio G Shock. Before I could say anything else the guy behind the counter fixed it and said it was free of charge. How about that for service, thank you ever so much and I will definitely return in the future as a paying customer… Read Full Review

“Sudden Price Change!”

Written on: 20/05/2017 by Karen1992 (1 review written)

Took in my watch after calling the branch. I'd been given a cost of £39.95 for a strap alteration. When I arrived I was told that the price had risen to £49.95 after the operative had spoken with his manger. I should have walked away on principle but I'd driven all the way into town and paid for parking plus I wanted the watch for hat evening as was planning to wear out. Wouldn't go back… Read Full Review

You can trust them with your precious time peice!… Read Full Review

“Ebel watch”

Written on: 07/04/2017

I took my Ebel watch to the Leicester outlet. They replaced the cell for the price and within the time quoted so I am very pleased. Previously the watch had been sent to Ebel in Switzerland. They said that the watch had to be serviced as it was rusty inside, as well as supplying the new cell, all at a cost of £300. The Watch Lab couldn't find any rust and replaced the cell for £120. I would definitely use them again. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

“Trustworthy Watch Repairs”

Written on: 04/03/2017 by Conradpg201 (1 review written)

I had never been here before but thought I would give it a try and am so glad I did. I was greeted very kindly by who I think was the manager. I wanted my watch battery replaced and have found it hard to get it replaced elsewhere due to the type of watch I had. The manager knew exactly why. He knew all about my watch make and style and what needed to be done. His knowledge really impressed me and made me feel at ease about handing over my watch. I was told to come back in an hour. I did so and… Read Full Review

I needed a replacement battery for my watch, but was short of time to catch a train. The friendly team at Leicester Highcross helped me with a faster service than normal and when I returned to collect it in 15 minutes, it was ready and waiting. Thank you for a great service… Read Full Review

“Delighted ”

Written on: 27/02/2017 by Javon1947 (1 review written)

I took my Casio G shock to Liecester branch. Very efficient staff. Not phased by my watch. Replaced the battery which is what I wanted. But added bonus were able to reseal the watch for underwater use. I thought I would have to surrender this feature to get the battery fitted. Only took an hour! So no hassle of sending watch away etc. I would definitely use the service again… Read Full Review

“Ômega seamaster 1975”

Written on: 18/02/2017 by EmeryHeath1987 (1 review written)

Do not recommend. Have done a full restoration on my vintage ômega seamaster (auto) and 2.5 years later watch stopped. Spoke to the branch manager in Brent Cross whobwas rude, patronising and absolute money craver. Tthe watch was full restored less than 2.5 years ago by watchlab(it took than several months to carry the work) I paid £590 for it. Now the watch stopped working they are telling me that a full restoration needed at the cost of £690. Have they not done that previously??… Read Full Review
