I have gone to the Watch Doctor four different times for different watches and problems. The Watch Doctor was very cost conscious and fixed each of the watches quickly. A few times he had to have parts shipped in, but still took care of the problem within a week. I am now living elsewhere, but will ship my watch to him. Many watch doctors see a Rolex and see dollar signs--not this place. I trust them and highly recommend this shop.

Never a problem never a complaint. Very good place. We have used several other watchmakers/repairers in Tampa. They all seem to have some superiority complex and to be honest charge a S**t load of money for just routine stuff. I am not sure if I would use any other repair service in Tampa. I feel sure that if I am specific in my request I get the job done or he would tell me he couldn't do it or it's not economically worth doing. I am a part time collector, nothing too grand but he always has time and is never condescending. That means a great deal.

Wonderful experience!

I stood there watching several pawn stores bring in watches that people were trying to pawn. The gentleman evaluated each watch for these pawn stores for free while they waited so the store would not take a loss on a bad watch pawn. He knew his business!

I took in eight watches for him to evaluate. Out of the eight watches, five of them were in perfect running order. One was too far gone for repairs and only two needed service. He was honest in his evaluations and I will continue to do business with him and his staff. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ALL!!

I brought in two watches-a brand new one for a battery replacement and very old one for an original glass cyrstal replacement.
They said they replaced the battery on my new watch but it won't work because it's a plastic Japan movement and they can't do anything with it. No charge. I took it apart myself a week later and noticed they didn't put the plastic ring in correctly for the digital buttons. Now the digital part of the watch works just fine but the analog is still broken. I believe they broke my brand new wrist watch.
My second watch was a solid gold pocket watch made in 1916-very valuable. They said no problem replacing the original glass crystal-about a week-$65.00. Stopped in a week later-not done come in another week. Never received phone call as promised. Stopped in after second week and my gold watch was done. They replaced the glass crystal with a cheap plastic cyrstal and said they can't do anything more-no one makes glass cyrstals anymore for my size of pocket watch. Was ignored for a receipt until I asked a third time. I was charged $45.
I blame myself for trusting these gentlemen. I feel they should of told me what they can't do instead of going on with the replacement and expecting me to be happy with a cheap plastic replacement on a over $1000.00 watch. I am writing this so you don't make the same mistake as I did.

I recently went to the watch doctor with a watch for sale and it was a 1997 rolex daytona u series with a zenith movement. The so called watch doctor told me that its not worth alot and that the new rolex daytona's are worth more and he can get them for 7300 new and he wouldn't pay over that for my watch. If anyone that knows watches you would know that the daytona's with the zenith movement is worth way more and is more a collectors watch then the new ones. So instead of trying to be honest he try to give me some bs and tell me lies about the value of the watch so he can try to get the watch for a really low price. Little does he know i am a watchmaker myself and i was just there to test out his store and he failed. What a rip off he is

well...they fix whatever goes wrong in your watch...they seem like they are well qualified and have been working on watches for a while. niagara falls proved a disaster to my watch... so after the trip i took it this shop...they kept it for a day...but at the end of the day...it was fixed...job well done. not expensive either, quite competetively priced. would recommend my friends to go there.
