Editorial review from Citysearch 9/24/2012

Unfortunately we just had the worst experience at this store. I have always felt comfortable recommending this store to my friends because I felt like I had always gotten wonderful service every time we've gone in there over the last 10+ years. That is no longer the truth. We were treated so rudely and the other employees were trying to laugh it off, but bottom line is they wanted to make their sale and they didn't care how they did it or who they hurt in the process. Very disappointing to realize that they did not want to show us the best products nor did they want to make sure we got what we wanted. Be very careful when buying jewelry here! I now have to recommend to my friends to shop around and buy elsewhere. more

Excellent repair / service 4/15/2012

Hal's did a great job fixing a custom ring and resized another. I'm so glad to have reviews online for opinions b/c I never would have known about this great little shop. They knew exactly what needed to be done to fix a couple of expensive rings and did it for less than I expected. They are first class and I will use them again for any jewelry needs. more

Great experience at Hal Martin's 7/21/2011

My fiance and I looked for her wedding band at lots of places in the Galleria area and they all had either bad service or exorbitant prices. Tarang at Hal Martin's dealt straight with us and gave us great advice on wedding bands that no one else had bothered to tell us. He was very helpful and we felt like he gave us a beautiful ring at a fair price. I was very satisfied with my experience at HM and I would definitely buy from there again. more

Best customer service anywhere in Houston 5/25/2011

Though I've never bought anything, they have repaired things for me for free 3 times. Can't ask for more than that! more

Great Service, Great People, Great Products 3/19/2011

I came in to authenticate my Rolex Submariner. As a multiple Rolex owner, I buy pre-owned from time to time and this one I needed verified as genuine / authentic. Not only did they verify it was all authentic quickly and expertly, but they offered to re-brush the bracelet to make the finish nicer. They were gracious and very nice with a level of knowledge you don't see. Even though I didn't go in today to buy a Rolex, while waiting for the verification and re-finishing, I looked at some of their Rolexes for sale. The sales staff was extremely nice and accommodating and didn't hesitate to ask me if I needed help and pull out watches when I wanted to see them. Because they were so nice and knowledgeable, I will certainly make this my first stop for pre-owned Rolex and other watches in the future. Thank you, Hal Martins. Cheers, Ross more

Rock solid company 2/24/2011

I have a pocket watch that needed a part so after reading up on reviews of various companys I choose Hals to see if they could help. I found the people at Hals to be professional and friendly and talk about service ...when the watchmaker failed to find the correct part for my watch, he made one! Hal's deserves the 5 star rating and the people working there get 6. Looking for honest solid service ... go to Hal Martins ... more

Great place and even better people! 2/18/2011

I went in looking for a very specific watch and they were able to help me find exactly what I was looking for. They even had to order a part from New York. I was able to get my watch in under a week. Everybody there is extremely nice and helpful. There is no question that I will go back for my next purchase and I recommend that anybody looking for watches or jewelry go visit them. more

Abysmal! 2/8/2011

Worse and rudest customer service I have EVER experienced. I'd give zero stars if available. I wanted the strap repaired on my Omega Seamaster automatic and was told my watch was ""falling apart"" and needed a $430 service despite it working fine and being in excellent condition for a 10 year old watch. When asked what the sevice entailed I was told it would include ""gaskets and oiling."" When I questioned the extent of the service and the priced I was told to 'just take my watch"" as the assistant held it between thumb and first finger like a piece of dirt. I promptly walked out of the store and went to Duetsch & Duetsch who confirmed my watch was in excellent order and needed a simple strap repair. Steer clear of this place. more

best High End Pawn Shop 4/28/2010

I was in a bind and needed to sell some gold, i shopped around most places i went wanted to give me 70 bucks for a gold watch, (penny weight) most pawn shops i went to such as Wright, were kinda rude, and seemed like they were doing me a favor. when i went to Hal Martins, staff was very professional and polite and offered me 280 for the watch plus owner took out the diamonds for me to have to make a ring. Love love love Hal Martins!! Pros: they give you better prices for your luxuy items than most Cons: i wish i had more stuff to sell more

Hal Martin's Jewelry 4/26/2010

Over the last 12 months I have had occasion to use Hal Martin's for everything from watch batteries [3] to repair of an old Rolex, to resizing my wedding band [I think it shrunk] and the folks at Hal Martin's have taken care of me just as though I was an old friend. No pressure, just good honest value.\r \r ""Deadeye"" Pros: Friendly service and reasonable prices more

Great service and excellent product 4/9/2010

My fiance bought me a unique engagement ring from one of the big chains and it didn't come with a matching wedding band. I took it into Hal Martin's and they made a match that looks aboslutely perfect! I was so pleased with the outcome that my fiance got his groom's band custom made at Hal's for about 25% of what we would have paid in a big chain store. Hal Martin's will be my first stop for jewelry needs in the future because they exceeded my expectations twice and the service was great. Pros: Craftsmanship and price more

Shear Excellence 4/2/2010

We were referred to Hal Martinls by good friends of ours and the exxperience we had lived up to what we had been told! We were looking to purchase a new wedding ring and band and Tarang showed us several rings until my wife found the one she wanted. Tarang was very patient and went out of his way to give us exceptional customer service. I needed the ring that night for our special occasion and although it would normally have taken a day or two, Tarang was able to get the ring sized and to our specifications within just a few hours. Thanks Tarang and thanks Hal Martin,s! more

great service 3/19/2010

I've done business with Hal for 15 yrs and when my 15th Anniversary came along he and Barbara helped me out with a really special gift. Barbara had their vase and glass artist do a most special vase for my wife. It was beyond my expectations and my wife was so very pleased. Thank you again for your special personal attention. David Pros: Personal attention to detail more

Par excellence! 2/23/2010

I have been a customer for 10 years, mostly for gold bullion and slightly used Rolex watches. Traded in a Submariner for Yachtmaster....my Yachtmaster, like all their items, looks brand new. Box, papers, certifications, everything. Also, very honest and easy to deal with when buying or selling gold in any form. I am not sure why anyone would go anywhere else. Quality, price, honesty & service (just had my Yachtmaster serviced---well worth the price of the COA). Enjoy! Pros: Why go anywhere else? Cons: Can't think of any! more

Great Service and Great Products 2/2/2010

I have purchased a Rolex, diamond bezel and other rolex accessories over the years and most recently had some old jewelry re-made into new pieces, and the service has always been top notch. I woudl absolutely purchase a watch and any other jewelry from Hal Martin. Staff will work with you to ensure you are 100% satisfied. They also give the best prices for buying gold around - very fair! I woudl highly recommend them! Pros: Friendly, attentive to customers' needs, good value more

Sky's the limit 1/20/2010

Excellent customer service and a willingness to help. I've taken many ideas to them to customize my Rolex and they have been more than capable to make it happen. Give them a chance to earn your business. Pros: Can make your watch ideas come to life more

Excellent service!!! 12/12/2009

I accidental let some moisture into my Rolex DateJust that was given to me by my parent after passing the Royal College examination may years ago. When calls were made to some local ""authorised dealer"" the charges were quite expensive and routinely they say will take a few weeks for servicing.\r \r Hal Martin took only 2 weeks and the watch is like new when I picked it up today. The staff were exceptional pleasant and the lady (Barbara) alos give me very nice carrying case for my other digital watch.\r \r The price for servicing was very fair. I would definitely return for the next service.\r \r The location is also easy to find with ample parking spaces. Pros: Professional, courtesy, efficient Cons: None at this time. more

A Pleasant Experienc 11/24/2009

A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE\r My wife and I (Margaret and Dick Golden) lived in Ct. and retired to Houston TX. I have diabetes that caused kidney disease. I was told that I might have to go into a dialysis program within the next few years. Upon researching further, my health was good except the kidney problem and the Doctors said that I should consider a kidney transplant. My wife (Margaret) said she was willing to give me one of hers. Testing our compatibility, she was approved to be my donor. We went through the operation and I am now living a normal life with the hope that the transplant has given me twenty more years, I decided that a gold charm of a kidney would show my appreciation to my donor, my wife. I did not find a commercial gold kidney charm. My wife had used the Hal Martin’s Watch Jewelry Co. several times with very positive results and had received wonderful service. I stopped in to talk to them about the kidney charm project. They also checked for a commercial charm and found that there was none available. They then proceeded to make a mold of a kidney and fabricated the THE PERFECT KIDNEY CHARM. Margaret has not taken the charm off. Thank you Tarang of Hal Martin’s Watch & Jewelry Co.\r Pros: Great to do business with more

Excellent Service! 11/17/2009

My wife and I purchased new watches from Hal Martin's and were extremely happy with the entire process. We were able to easily identify the watches we wanted, the watches were found and brought into the store within a few days. When we did need additional service on one of our watches, Hal Martin's staff was eager to help us remedy the issue. We will go back to Hal Martin's for all of our watch needs. Great job - keep up the great work! Pros: Service; friendly and knowledgeable staff more
