- Timpson’s Schmimpson’s – watch bracelet adjustment
According to the website, my local Timpson’s offers a watch bracelet adjustment service.
So I went in this morning with my new G-Shock GMW B5000 (all metal) and asked the guy to remove two links.
“Sorry mate. I can’t do it.”
“I’ve not got the tools for it.”

I went to one for the same purpose on the basis the jewellers opposite needed 48hrs. He took some links out, gave it back, I paid. Within 20ft of me walking away he watch fell apart, luckily I caught everything.
Went I went back, he went “Sorry mate not my problem” despite the fact I’d been there about 30 seconds ago. I had a minor argument about his responsibilities and that if no remedial action I was off to complain to the famous shopping centres management. He fixed it with a grimace and an over zealous hammering on my watch and practically threw it back at me.
I’m sure there are some good franchises, but I won’t go to that one again.Posted 1 month agobiggingeSubscriber
I recently took a watch into the one in our local Sainsbury’s to see if the could swap the failing clasp on my watch over for a replacement is bought on eBay. They guy did it for me there and there and only asked me to drop a few pounds in the charity tin rather than taking anything in actual payment. Couldn’t have been happier.Posted 1 month ago
