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: $30 and up.

Battery Clock Repair (movement replacement) $50 and up.

Bracelet Sizing (removal or addition of links) $20 and up

Bracelet Sizing on watches purchased @ The Watchmaker is usually no charge.

Replacement of bracelet spring bars (pair) $9.41 + tax.

Minimum bench charge for any watch being left for repair $95.  Typically includes check of timekeeping, water-resistance, minor repairs/adjustments as needed, light cleaning of case and band.

Atmos Clock Evaluation and Estimates $125, this is applicable toward the repair if approved, due if declined.

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 $100 when applicable.  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.
