Fast, friendly, modestly priced service.And, well, I won't lie about the fact that the guy who waited on me was pretty damn easy on the eyes. :)Seriously -- thanks to Frank at CNS for a job done quickly and well.I will return when I need more watch or jewelry work done.
My grandfather clock from Germany stopped working and I checked with five different places to have them fix it. It was from around 1900 and was a family heirloom. This company was the only one that would repair it. It took five months (they are backed up). John actually delivered the works and installed back into the clock and spent an hour at our house installing, checking, and verifying it was functional. It runs as if it was new. I can't begins to tell you how happy I am with this service. This was my father's clock. It's as if my dad is alive again and with me. I recommend HIGHLY this clock repair service. And as far as it taking five months, you have to wait for great things. This company's repair of something so precious to me is well worth this wait. Thank you all for bringing back to life my clock, and in some way, the spirit and memories of my father.
I took my grandmother's wrist watch in November of 2015. I heard they did good work so I took my Sligh wall clock to them at the beginning of December. It's a key-wound clock and stopped winding a year before. Six weeks passed and they said my watch was done. I went in and they said "Sorry. We ordered a hair spring for it. Check back in a couple weeks." So I kept checking back every couple weeks. It was always "We haven't had time to work on it." Finally, at the end of April, I said "Give me my watch and my clock back." The clock was at their shop in Guthrie and they would have to bring it back. I went back three times and they just kept "forgetting" to bring it. They had the clock for five months, and supposedly fixed it, but it's been running fast and it won't stay wound for more than 3 days. AND the biggest thing that irritates me is they seemed to never know who I was each time I stopped by. They even asked for my claim ticket when I went back and got the clock!!
TERRIBLE!!!!If I could give no stars I would. After having my grandmother's Grandfather clock since July, there were 2 no shows on promised deliveries to return it, a superglue "fix" was used, and a $275 repair fee. Guess what?! THE CLOCK IS STILL BROKEN!!!!!! Poor Business and Poor Morals to cheat an elderly lady on a sentimental and prized possession. I should also mention that the repairman tricked her into replacing the hands on her antique mantel clock. Who does that?! SHAME ON YOU!
To go place for watch or jewelry repair. Prompt and good price. The place you can count on for a good service !!!
Need an experienced watch or jewelry repairman, Mr. Kim is your man. He is fast, reasonably priced, and a genuine artisan at his craft..
This is a business of thieves (I believe like the other reviewer its family operated) who basically stole $125.00 dollars from me for a mantle clock that he assured me would run properly when I picked it up. He said it was definitely worth fixing...needless to say after 4 months and 5 trips the clock still did not work properly. I could tell you all the details but it just makes my blood boil. In the final visit before I picked up my clock I dropped by where he said he was going to leave my clock on the counter under his watchful eye and see what's going on. I decided to drop by unannounced after 3 weeks and low and behold there it was in the same spot dead. It takes roughly a week for the key wound mantle clock to go dead yet there it was deader than a doorknob never been touched. He told me it would be ready in a week and he just hadn't wound it yet today.....LIAR.....I returned a week later again unannounced it was 15 minutes behind time so I knew it still hadn't been fixed, It also had a new ticket dated the day after I dropped in a week earlier. I told him I was going to take it and asked for a refund, which immediately he said there would be no refund he got rude and started grabbing up all proof(ticket receipts) of the clock having been except the one I scooped up which he physically tried with both hands to remove from my grip. He came around like he was going to physically try and take it from my pocket but I think he realized he was looking at the beating a thief would get if he laid a hand on me. He demanded for me to leave and threatened to call police, he acted like he did but he's an idiot he was describing me to police when he had all the info on the tickets,,,what an idiot! So if you go there after this review remember your wasting your time and money....The city would do well to set up a sting because this is a front for a theft ring.
Fast service. Good price. Cute little shop. Can't find majy places to getnwatch batteries put in now. Love supporting small business.
I dropped my ceramic watch and the hour hand had stopped working. I took it to many jewelers and watch shops, all either wanted to send it off or replace the entire mechanics of the watch rather than opening it up and seeing if it could be fixed, I was looking at $60 down the drain and 4 weeks with a naked wrist.The shop is tucked into a corner of a shopping center, it's hard to find but worth looking for. I had to wait a while, but that is because when he is working with his customers they have his undivided attention. When he got to my watch, he actually opened it up to take a look right there on the spot. He spent a good 20-30 minutes on my watch, got it working like new, cleaned it up, got it back to me the same day, and only charged me $5.If you're in a rush you might want to wait for another day, but the quality of service here outweighs that issue for me. Clifton's now has my business for life!
User beware before you go into this place. Went in there to change the battery to an expensive wrist watch i purchased at Dillards. They changed the battery and it stopped working after 4hrs. I then called them over the phone to let them know that the watch went dead after few hours. I was then advised by the Manager that it might need servicing and oiling but that they would test the battery again and replace if need be. So they changed the battery a second time. This time the wrist watch worked for about 6hrs and quit. I called them again about the situation, was then told to bring it in for repairs. I thought about repairing it for $65 if it was really worth it. I decided to take it to Dillards to ask for a better repair place for that brand of watch. They gave me a number to call. Then some instinct in me was not satisfied with their services. So i decided to try Walmart to see if they will be willing to change the battery for the last time before i try another Jeweler to pay for an expensive repairs. Guess what? The wrist watch is still working 3weeks after. Apparently this place is ran by family members out there scaming people by deceiving the public when you come in with an expensive watch or clock and they put in a half dead battery so you will think it needed repairs. When all it needed was a good battery change. I can promise you that they have ripped so many people off before I caught them by chance. To cover up for their act they decided to give me back my money when they have a big sign saying No refunds on their services. I refuse the money because the mother of the so called Manager was there and ready to fight me for not wanting a check but cash like i paid them. I looked at the place and their condition I decided they could keep the money, i was only interested in the principle behind that type of business. Expose them to the public.
