Repair Pricing & Shop Policies
The Watchmaker offers walk-in repair service with no appointment necessary. Many basic repairs that take weeks/months to go to the manufacturer can be done on a “while you wait” basis. This includes most battery replacements and minor bracelet repairs.
Common Repair Costs:
While-You-Wait Battery Replacement $16 (including tax) and up. Includes new battery and professional installation. We do not use customer-supplied parts or batteries.
Battery Replacement including basic water-resistance testing: $26.00 and up.
Battery Clock Repair (movement replacement) $50 and up.
Bracelet Sizing (removal or addition of links) $17.50 and up.
Bracelet Sizing on watches purchased @ The Watchmaker is usually no charge.
Replacement of bracelet spring bars (pair) $9.41 + tax.
Basic bench charge for any watch being left for repair $65.
Estimates on modern watches without complications are generally no charge. If there will be a charge for an estimate you will always be notified in advance.
Estimates on vintage watches $75 and up. This amount can be applied toward the approved repair.
We do not offer refunds on battery replacements or labor charges, no exceptions. Should a watch need more repair after a recent battery replacement, we are glad to apply the previous charges toward a comprehensive repair.
We make no guarantees on time-frame of a repair. We strive to complete repairs in a timely manner and on schedule and, when asked, we provide our best estimate as to when a repair may be completed based on where it is in the process. The anticipated date of completion may be subject to change at any time during the repair process.
