    Anyone Know A Boston-area Repair Shop ?

    My watch stopped working after I dropped it, and I'd like to get if fixed. Money's tight, so I'd an economical place. Any repair places in eastern Massachusetts?

    Here's a picture, it's an analog based "digital" Bulova.

    You could try Yuri at Yuri's watches.

    I've been there, but it's on Newbury St, a costly shopping district for those with plenty of greenbacks.

    Still, wouldn't hurt to see what he says.

    you could try sending an email to the watchmaker in stoneham. the gentleman there actually appraised/adjusted the bezel on my omega free of charge. really nice of him, and the manager.

    There is a shop in Brookline on Harvard St. just south of Beacon in Coolidge Corner. He has worked on my vintage pieces, including a Bulova. He is reasonable. But it is going to depend on the damage. A routine service might be around $100, but broken parts, over-haul etc. is going to be a little more. He over-hauled a rusted out Lord Elgin for me for under $200, though, which I thought was decent.

    There are also many places downtown in the jewelry district, including a place called the "watch hospital" but I haven't used any of them.

    Watch Hospital is mainly a place for getting batteries replaced ... a bit on the sketchy side and I definitely wouldn't take my mechanical there. Unfortunately the only place I have experience with is DeScenza jeweler's and they just send it out somewhere else to get fixed.

    Yuri's is pretty affordable, actually.

    Yeah, don't take your watch there. They're arrogant AND incompetent.

    Is this a Russian guy? I took a watch to a repair shop owned by a Russian in Brookline, approx 10-15 yrs ago. He was good back then. I never thought he might still be in business.
