Ipanema Watch Repair
1168 Rosecrans Street, Roseville
When your watch needs a new battery cell, the worst place to go is the mall. Most mall jewelers don't replace watch batteries, and those who do charge anywhere from $10 for cells on inexpensive watches to $60 for expensive brands. Ipanema Watch Repair is friendly, reasonable, and fast. As the name suggests, Uillis (pronounced "Willis") Volpato, the owner, is from Brazil. He is courteous and knows all about watches, because that's all he does. He doesn't sell any other type of jewelry. He can replace your cell in two minutes and charges from $4 to $7, depending on the cell needed. He keeps a large stock of watch works, bands, and crystals on hand for other repairs. Ipanema stocks new watches, including Citizen, Longines, Michel Herbelin, and Boccia Titanium.
