"Watch Repair Service"


Do not use this company for a watch repair service. They are over charging their customers!!

They told me my watch needed a full repair service, when it only needed a new battery. They tried to get me to pay nearly a £100.00 for a service, and lied to me, saying that the battery was fine and still had power, and that it was the watch that needed fixing.
I took my watch to an independent watch repairer who told me it just needed a new battery at a cost of £10.00 and that it most certainly did not need a service.

If you need a watch repaired I would suggest taking it to an independent watch repairer. You can find one in your area by logging onto to the British Horological Institute www.bhi.co.uk

F.Hinds just sends your watch to one of these repairers anyway, and makes a huge profit for this service. They charge you £100.00 to just put your watch in the post. If you send your watch to the repairer yourself, they will charge you around £40.00.
