This is the first review of anything i've ever written. Nothing about this story is exaggerated.

I walked into Danny's because my old watch repair shop I had always gone to had closed down. I had my grandfather's old movado watch with me- extreme sentimental and general value. I told Danny that it was a special watch, and he waved his hand dismissively at me. I decided I didnt feel right about having him repair my watch... something just didnt feel right. I asked Danny politely for my watch back. He demanded to know why, and i told him that i had just remembered another watch repair shop closer to my house. THEN HE REFUSED TO GIVE ME THE WATCH BACK! no joke. he flat said, "No, I will do it." I said, "i understand that times are hard these days, and I wish you could give you my business, but this watch is very important to me and I need you to give it back to me." Danny bellowed "NO! you stupid girl, I already looked at it for you, that means I need money from you!" I said, "Do not talk to me like that, and please hand me my watch." He ignored my like a child and said a curse word under his breath. I told him that if he didnt give me my family heirloom back immediately, I would be calling the police. He waved his fist in my face and said "call the police then! Stupid girl!"
So I did. The police showed up as I was crying and Danny was still muttering mean things to me. They got me my watch back and they stayed to further interview Danny about his verbally abusive attitude and keeping my property against my will.
NO ONE SHOULD EVER GO INTO THAT STORE.

Pros: nothing!

Cons: danny's attitude, horrible service

I was looking for a special battery, a 337, very small and difficult to find. I called and "Danny" I believe, told me he had it and it was $4.00. When I drove over there, walked in and introduced myself as the person who just spoke with him over the phone, he finds the battery, looks at me and says, "for you, its $15.00. I politely respond "You just told me over the phone, its $4.00". He rudely replies " For you, its $15.00". Obviously, I leave the store. Price must be dependent on who you are and/or what you drive as you pull up to his classy establishment!

Cons: Rip off! Would never recommend!!!

I absolutely DO NOT recommend this place to anyone! I wish I could put a negative star on this review!
I have a review on Yelp dot com that is much more detail that I could put on this site. To break it down, I went in to have a battery replaced in a casio pathfinder solar. The owner Danny, hereafter known as "old man" put a battery in my watch that after two more visits and a visit 30 miles away to a authorized casio dealer I find out is the right size wrong battery and destroys the tempature/altimeter/compass/baraometer sensor!!! The old man denies putting in the wrong battery and after showing him both batteries and a letter from the authorized dealer that the reason the sensor wont work anymore and must be replaced is because HE PUT IN THE WRONG BATTERY!!! He continues to deny it and after I tell him that the watch is sentimental and I used it during my entire deployment to Afghanistan. Then he had the audacity to tell me "everyone says their watch is sentimental" I couldnt believe the gall of this guy!!!!
I told him that I would goto the better bizness bureau (why wont they let you write the actuall spelling of B8B on here???) write bad reviews EVERYWHERE and more!
there was another guy who had been sitting there not saying a word, he comes up and says he will send it to casio. I leave and come back two weeks later. IT WORKS FINALLY! After 1 1/2 months!!! I dont even thank him and leave. I get home and THERE ARE F**KING SCRATCHES ON THE FACE!!!!! I am sooooooo sick and tired of the place that If I go back Im afraid of what will happen!!!!

DO NOT GO TO THIS WATCH REPAIR!
AVOID IT LIKE IT WILL GIVE YOU A RASH THAT WONT GO AWAY!

Pros: NONE

Cons: BAD SERVICE, LYING, DAMAGE TO WATCH

.

First of all... I was told to come back in an hour and my watch would be ready. I was getting the battery changed. I came back 7 hours later and he had not even STARTED working on it. So I had to stand there waiting for him to change the battery.

When he was done with it there was a big scratch that was not there when I brought it in. He accused me of lying, saying that it was there. I told him that I look at this watch EVERY single day (for the past 8 years) and I would notice a big scratch. He grumbled and took the watch back and started working on it again. He came back with it after buffing it and whatever else he did with it several minutes later and it looked better. But I noticed that there was a white ring of maybe condensation under the glass!?! What kind of shoddy job was this? So he grumbled and took it back again to work on it. Several minutes later he gave it back, and now there was lint under the glass. UNBELIEVABLE!! I was upset about the watch because it was a gift from someone and had sentimental value and I told him that. He told me that I shouldn't cry about it because it wasn't a big deal. But it wasn't just a simple statement, he went on and on about it. How would HE know!? I had already told him that it had sentimental value. Then he made fun of me. Now I got upset, and with tears in my eyes I told him I did not appreciate how he was treating me as a customer. He told me not to come back (as though I would want to after this experience). And I told him that I wouldn't want to return and that he would receive a bad review.

Who knew so much could go wrong when changing a simple watch battery. I am a very mellow person, but this was just ridiculous and I don't understand how you can treat another person (and a customer!!) like that.

SHODDY WORK and TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE.
