2009-01-09 12:38:18 Within only a few minutes of entering his shop, Andrew had worked his magic, and skillfully brought my ailing Citizen watch back to life. Thanks again. —taurus5
2009-10-06 16:29:45 i got my pocket watch battery changed. andrew was very quick and professional. —NickKory
2009-10-26 22:59:50 I went in, and within five minutes my watch had a new battery. Only cost me $9! Very nice. —ChristyMarsden
2009-12-10 15:21:48 stopped by yesterday to see if they could fix my fave watch... the owner(?) tried and tried but unfortunately it was a lost cause. He was really nice and worked on it right away though, so i would definitely go back... especially because he didn't charge me anything for his time. —AdrienneW
2010-01-31 19:40:55 Went here for the first time the other week. The person helping me was extremely professional and helpful. He fixed my watch in quite a timely manner and the fee was more than reasonable! I will definitely go here for all my watch needs from now on; best in town. —BeanMarine

2010-10-11 18:19:29 I have to agree with all the positive comments posted here. I brought a recently purchased antique locket (my "something old") to wear on my wedding day to see about getting our wedding date engraved on the back. The clerk helped me pick a font and even figured out how to get our names included to make it even more personal and special. However, the best part came when I got the estimate; it was higher than I'd hoped or budgeted, especially since I'd had a flat tire on the way in and hadn't factored the cost of two new tires into the wedding budget. He saw my face fall and very graciously worked out a plan to bring the work back into my budget. How is that for incredible service? I can't wait to wear the locket on the big day and the engraving will make it a lovely piece to pass down to future children and grandchildren! Thank you Davis Awards and Watchworks, this is exactly the type of store which makes me love Davis!! —dandysgirl
2011-12-13 13:56:10 Andrew is a very pleasant person to interact with! He replaced the battery of my watch in no time! Bring your business here =) —kg18
2012-01-14 15:21:36 Just got a wrist watch battery replaced this afternoon. Cost $9.50 and took 5 minutes. Good service, recommended. —aroach12
2012-02-08 23:12:24 Guy before me came in for a battery change. Took literally 3 minutes and he was done. I had my wristband shortened. 5 minutes later I was out the door. Very friendly and fast service for only $9.50. Excellent & speedy service, great price, very friendly - highly recommend. —JohnBradshaw
2012-05-29 11:27:42 Disappointed. Came here today to get a watch battery replaced but it was not open at 10am like the sign says. Waited 20 minutes, along with another guy, then left. Will go somewhere else. —jsbmeb
2012-06-01 14:46:17 I went here to get the battery changed for two watches. He finished both watches in less than 5 minutes and it cost 19 dollars even. —briankwan
2012-10-11 16:20:10 AWESOME SERVICE. I went in to get a watch battery replaced, and Andrew dropped what he was doing to take care of it for me as fast as possible. Will definitely be going back for any watch-related needs. Thanks so much! —BigJay
2013-06-01 11:03:39 BEWARE: Sometimes local is not the best option. My wife ordered trophies 6 weeks in advance for our sons tee ball team. The week before the team party, the owner (Andrew Rathbone) claimed the trophies were ready, but they needed some finishing touches. He asked that we come in on Saturday morning at 10:15 a.m. to pick up the order. On Saturday we found a handwritten sign on the shop door that indicated the store was closed till 1:00 p.m. The team party was at 11:00 a.m.
Thank you Andrew!
2013-08-01 18:13:09 I just went this place to remove one link from my watch's metal band (which is a 30 second procedur in inexperienced hands) and the guy charged me 7 dollars for that(which should be normally 1-2 dollars). I should have asked from the beginning for price. In my country(Turkey) most of the watch repair shops don't charge anything from you for this, if you insist take 1-2 liras. Links are attached to each other with just regular pins and anyobody having a packing needle can remove a few links. So i recommend NOT to go this place even to check the prices. —BatuhanBahadır
2013-09-30 12:00:28 Brought in a watch with a "nonstandard" sized casing; although they had to keep the watch for a while to figure out how to safely open the back to replace the battery, they still only charged me the standard $9.50. Thanks! —JenWalker
