Mr Ford is a storied man, and highly skilled at what he does. His knowledge is encyclopaedic. If you need any watch or clock mechanisms fixing or even just a battery swap, he can do it )often right there and then for a simple battery swap). Changing the battery on a Tag Heuer took 2 minutes and cost £6. That’s around £40 cheaper than the official Tag service centre. I can’t he’ll but think he might even be too cheap. Go for the service, hang out for the stories. Ask him about the U-boat clock he has as a souvenir on a shelf. A true craftsman.

This chap is simply brilliant! Knows everything there is to know about clocks and watches. First rate work and friendly service at very reasonable prices. His expertise and knowledge are surely second to none. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and it will be a sad day when he ceases to trade.

Excellent and friendly service from a true gent This place has been around for many more years than I care to remember (and it must be at least 30 to 40 years) and he is always accommodating and more to the point honest (i.e. if it can not be fixed, then that is the genuine answer, and not that he is not interested in the job or got too much work on). Important note that he always has stacks of work and works hard to get jobs done then he may shut (during the day) to get a job done - opening hours therefore can be a bit hit and miss - so please be patient if you wish to have a job done (I have taken watches in for friends and they have been pleased with the work and value for money) He will give you a receipt if you have a repair done and a job takes about 2 weeks - do not try to call him as he will be busy Batteries can be done on the spot for a cost of £5 Repair costs are dependent on the job, but good value for money It is good to see small independent jewellers and watch/clock repairers around this like - he is the last of a dying breed He will take in most type of watches Good luck and keep up the good work K W Ford
