Great place. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff

Great place. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. I’ve been in a few times and while I haven’t bought anything, they are always willing to help. While it is a small location, they do have a great selection.

I highly recommend this shop

My first visit to Watch and Wares they showed me that my grandfathers vintage army issue Bulova was not only repairable but, after popping the case open, William made it run, on the spot. They cleaned it and repaired it without ruining the patina, and gave me a history lesson too. My second visit was a quick one, my dads Timex was even quicker, 5 min or less, when his watch back came off they did a quick cleaning and put it back on , and for free. I thought the watch was un-repairable.

I highly recommend this shop and I will be back again.
