Paul did an excellent job of refurbishing a Seiko 6139 chronograph for me, looks brand new and runs like a charm. Highly recommended for quality workmanship and a fair charge. Definitely plan to put more work Paul's way, highly recommend. Cheers

Paul Wieringa: Thanks Diana. We enjoyed meeting you and I'll let you know very soon re your Rolex. Buenos dias, Pablo ;-)
Brought a Seiko Diver from Paul which I was very happy with as the watch turned up looking like new even tho it was second hand, after a few emails back and fro I ended up sending two watch to Paul to fix up and overhaul which I am looking forward to seeing once they are done. Very nice guy to deal with and keeps you informed through out the process.

Paul Wieringa: Thanks for this. It was a pleasure to deal with you and your watches. Paul ;-)
Had my Seiko 7002 divers watch overhauled. Back to full working order with plenty of power reserve. Double plus service. Even gave it a polish, which looks good after all these years. Thanks again Paul.

Paul Wieringa: You're welcome Simon. You were good to deal with and these Seiko divers are such nice watches to work on. Paul
Thanks for your advice.

I have used Paul's service a couple of times. His workmanship, communication and pricing is excellent. Since I had an expensive watch ruined by on of the most expensive watch dealers in wellington I was looking for a good watch repairer. Luckily I found Paul.I would highly recommend using him instead of some semi-professionals with nothing but fancy names and outrages prices to repair our beloved watches. Thank you so much, Paul.

Paul Wieringa: Thankyou Ortwin. You're a pleasure to deal with and your watch job straightforward. Win / Win ;-)
I had bought a Casio watch which had missing springs that were needed for the Alarm and BP/Heart rate monitor to work. I made contact with Paul after searching on TradeMe and I am happy to say that Paul solved my problem. Paul's work ethic is second to none. Thanks Paul

Paul Wieringa: Thanks Sudhir but I'm sure my work ethic is second to.....someone out there!! Regards, Paul
I brought my watch to Paul to fix today. As we chatted for 30 minutes or so he managed to repair what was broken and replace the strap for me. You wouldn't get that at any other repairer, and great value for money too. I'll be straight back to Paul if I ever need repairs done again, and I couldn't recommend him more to anyone else.

Went to collect a treasured old Girard Perrigue that Paul had bought back to life for me and while there he also dismantled and cleaned out a 50's Benrus that had given up the ghost. It now goes as well as the day it was made.This craftsman cannot be recommended too highly.

Paul is a top notch watch smith. He is extremely sincere and took great care of watches he serviced for me. He is also great listener and very nice to talk to about watch related topics as well as many other things in life. If he weren't too far away from me, I would just drop by and say hello. His pricing is a great bonus too. He charges very farely and well below others you see in shopping malls. He will be the only watch smith I would go to even if it means I need to drive for an hour.

Paul Wieringa: Thank you for your kind words Peter. It was a pleasure to meet, get to know you and get your watches sorted. If you are over this way please call in for a chat and a cuppa. Regards, Paul
Paul sourced a extended clasp for me from the USA. Watch strap fits perfect now....Most impressed!! Really recommend this guy too. Cheers Mike.

Paul Wieringa: Thanks Mike and Sheila ;-) It was a pleasure doing it for you. Paul
I was looking up Paul's number and saw a bad review. My experience is exactly the opposite. I took an extremely valuable 100 year old Longines for a check up as I thought it was overwound. He found that it just needed a quick clean - charge nothing. He could of held onto it and charged any thing, I would have paid. To extend the clasp of another expensive watch he sourced the part over seas fitted it and only wanted to charge me $15 as the part took an age to source and arrive. NUF SAID.

Paul Wieringa: Thanks Mark. Great English language skills and nice thoughts ;-)
After getting a quote for $450 to repair my watch from a big jewellery retailer (who I had bought the watch from) I took my watch to Paul. He repaired and overhauled my watch for less than a third of the cost. Great service and I found Paul to be a very pleasant person as well. I would certainly use his services again. Highly recommended.

Paul Wieringa: Thanks Bill. It was nice to meet you and a pleasure to get your watch going well again. Paul ;-)
Got my watch back today, went for change battery but When i got it back found when i pull the side switch out it doesn't stop the watch running which it should be, rang Paul said he doesn't know why. Then i found the front and back steel was much damaged , i guess if the cover of my watch was not sapphire it will be damaged too. Im disappointed. If you got an expensive watch I will not recommend you to him. Plus when i spoke to him i found he is rude.

Paul Wieringa: Please compare my many positive feed backs and the hundreds of watches I have sold to people who are happy with my skills and polite service. I listened to her falsely accusing me of damaging her watch. I explained to her repeatedly what I had and had not done. She kept repeating herself and falsely accusing me of the damage. I gave her the options of bringing the watch to me to explain the setting system etc, which I hadn’t touched or having me refund her money. She opted for neither.
