So sorry he's no longer there, 7/13/2013

I went by to get Mr. Kim to replace the watchband and battery on my old Timex. Not a fancy watch but it's still running, and he always charges next to nothing and fixes it right there. The shop was... obviously closed, out of business. I asked someone at the antique store and they said they thought Mr. Kim was not in good health and had closed the business. I'm very sorry - there's no one nearby that provides the kind of service he did.

Can fix anything; battery replaced while you wait., 1/19/2010

In 1986 I brought my grandfather's pocket watch to Mr. Kim. It didn't run. I periodically called Mr. Kim to check on it but he kept putting me off. A year later, he finally called and said he had... fixed the watch. The price, as I recall, was reasonable. He had sourced the parts he needed internationally and was able to tell me this pocket watch was between 100 and 125 years old, and that's why it took him so long to find the parts. Recently I dropped this watch (still working) and cracked the crystal and the porcelain face. Mr. Kim fixed it again. I have a 40 year old Bulova self-wind that he's kept going, too. The guy is amazing!

Want Great Value And Great Service!

Kim's is an excellent place to take your fine jewelry for repair. He's been in this business a very long time and it shows. His costs are very reasonable for the level of quality he provides in his workmanship. I've had to use Kim's twice in the past year and I'm very satisfied with his service. Trust me, you'll be satisfied too!
