I take watches in for repair by mail only. There are some watches that I cannot acquire parts for, or that are too worn out to repair, so please call me, Stephen Thomas, at 503- 239-1859 or e-mail me at jpaulson@earthlink.net to inquire about repair of your watch. For my address and a form to fill out for sending your watch, click on the Sending Your Watch link at the top of the page. When e-mailing, please include your phone number and turn off your spam blocker so my reply will get through.

 

I do not sell parts, or do appraisals. Please do not ask.

 

 

Stephen,

Please feel free to use this as a testimonial on your website.

I received my Seiko Kinetic yesterday.  Thank you very much for the
great service!

The "turn around" was very quick, considering you had to order parts.
(Less than three weeks including postal service at each end, for those
considering using Stephen's service.)

I am very pleased with your quality and obvious commitment to customer
service ... and the price was right!  I am really glad I happened upon
your website ... your no-quibble warranty and Repair Philosophy were the
deciding factors that got me to make the call.

The only suggestion I would make for your website is to enlarge the
image of your AWI certificate so it is easily readable ... it is
interesting but just too small.

Good work!  Best wishes for continued success.

Hi Stephen,
 
The watch arrived yesterday.  That was very quick, efficient work.
Thanks for the communication stream that kept me informed of the steps
being taken.  It was certainly easier than driving the 45 minutes to the
nearest repair shop, leaving it there and having to return for it (only
to find out they could not fix it).  I am glad the Seiko website was not
functioning the day I tried to contact them - I was forced to look
further and found your site.
 
Great service!  Thanks

Dear Mr. Thomas,
 
The watch has been received in good condition. It seems to be running well
now.
 
Thanks for your prompt attention to the repair.

Stephen,

Thanks so much for the fast turn around and great correspondence. I
appreciate the excellent customer service.

Thanks again,

 
    Dear Fritz,
 
    I will include the old capacitor in the parcel with your watch,
    which I am now boxing up to post back to you today by registered
    insured mail. Seiko now designs their capacitors to last at least
    eight years, and it is one of these new capacitors which has been
    installed in your watch. Please allow several days for delivery.
    Mail from Vashon can be rather slow.
 
    Thank you,

Stephen,
        Thank you very much for your promptness and professionalism in the repair
of my Seiko Kinetic. It arrived a few days after you sent it, and it was
running when I took it out of the package. Even the day and date and time
were all exactly on! It was a sincere pleasure doing business with you, and
you can count on my business again for any of my other watches in the future
that may need repairing. Thanks again.
                                        Joe

Greetings,
I received my watch today in good working condition. I have been very
satisfied with the service you provide, the prompt communications and
your fairness. You shall have my business should the need arise in the
future.
Thanks,

Dear Stephen,
 
I received my repaired watch yesterday and it works fantastic!  I never
realized how attached I had become to it (no pun intended) until it was
gone.  I was having trouble finding a place locally to repair a Seiko
Kinetic watch, and each place I found indicated that they would have to
send it back east to New Jersey--with an estimated 2 week repair time.
In light of that, your service was nothing short of incredible: you
return from a 2 week vacation; receive and inspect my watch the day you
return to work; provide me with an extremely reasonable estimate that
very same day; and have it returned safely to me within five days.  In
short, "DUDE YOU ROCK!!!"
 
Gratefully yours,

Good Afternoon Stephen: I finally got my watch after having to be a little assertive 
with the local postal clerks. It seems they first insisted they had not received the package.
Then they conceded that they had accepted the package but it was not available to deliver. 
When I became demanding and arrived there in person, they found the package in the safe. 
Well, I guess alls well that ends well. I guess the only issue I had with the watch was that 
is was EXACTLY three hours slow. Took me a minute to figure that out. 
Just kidding. - I know there were three time zones difference. You may excerpt the following 
testimonial: Today, it is extremely difficult to find and do business with people who 
demonstrate and practice integrity. The watch repair was prompt and complete. 
The telephone call you made and e-mail to assist in tracing delivery was an extra effort. 
You demonstrated care and concern as well as doing a prompt repair. 
Thank you Vince Butera Oxford, Michigan

Dear Stephen:
    I received my Seiko Kinetic, back from your shop, on April 1, 04. It
looks and runs great. I had taken the watch to have it repaired, here on the
east coast, and no one wanted to touch it. It was in my desk, for about 2
years, when I decided to look on the internet for someone who could repair
it. I came across your website and decided to give you a try. I'm a Tool and
Die Maker by trade, and quality in workmanship is very important to me. You
have exceeded my expectations and have done an excellent job. Its great to
have the watch back and in such a short time.
 
Thank you again, Charlie Cain

Stephen,

I'm happy to have my Seiko Kinetic watch, it looks good with a new 
crystal and it's working fine.
Thank you for a job well done.
I will be sending you another Seiko watch soon.

THANKS STEVEN,

SERVICE SO FAR FROM MY AREA BUT YOUR HELP, RESPONSE, AND PROMPT 
ATTENTION QUICKLY EASED MY SKEPTICIZM. I APPRECIATE YOUR PERSONAL 
SERVICE AND JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU THAT YOU HAVE A GREAT BUSINESS GOING.

Dear Stephen,

After having my watch back and wearing it for a week, I just wanted to 
let you know how pleased I am with your service.  The watch is running 
great, and it's so nice to be able to place it on the dresser at night 
and just put it on in the morning without having to shake it and 
reset the time.  I'd almost forgotten what that was like.

Thank you so much for getting it back in working order and doing it 
so quickly.  I'm sure if I'd sent it to Seiko's repair people, it would 
still be there.  If anyone I know needs their watch worked on, I will 
let them know about your courteous and professional service.

Thanks again!

Stephen, Picked up my watch today and it seems to be working flawlessly! 
The "charge indication protocol" works and everything else is perfect as well. 
I especially appreciate the check for my mailing costs. Your customer service is 
exceptional! I will tell other folks I know about your most exceptional service. 
Thanks so much, b Bruce Roemmelt 2666 Collins Court Haymarket, VA 20169-1608

  Dear Peter,

Thank you very much for your reply. The chart I sent
back with yourwatch, though, isn't the tech specs, but
just a table showing how manyswings the watch requires
in order to reach a certain charge on theindicator.

Dear Stephen,
 
I just want to thank you for your very prompt and courteously handled repair of my Seiko kinetic. You returned it much faster than expected and asked for my approval of your estimate before doing the repairs. It was a very pleasant experience to do business with you and I will refer you to my friends. Thanks again.

Dear Stephen,
     I have received and am currently wearing my Seiko Kinetic Watch. I have had it back for almost a month and it is working perfectly. This is the first time I can say this. Thank you for making the proper repairs; I only wish the folks at Seiko could have done the same.
