El Marquez Watch Repair

Several times since I have been here in David, I have needed to have a battery replaced. The best and most reasonable store I have found has been El Marquez.

I have always been treated honestly and fairly and the service has been very quick. If he can’t do the job, he will tell where you can find the service. He also works on wall clocks of the old pendulum style. Here is a photo showing what can be serviced.

Here is another photo that shows that the El Marquez shop is directly across the street from Banco General. If you drop in this shop, tell Marquez that you heard about him from Chiriquí Chatter.

  1. Don, as I do with most of these little store and servicing tips that you run periodically, I put the details of El Marquez into my contact database with appropriate tags so that I can search/find it later. This comes in mighty handy six months down the calendar as, say for example, when the trusty Casio wristwatch suddenly starts to dim and I find myself saying, now where did I hear that there was a good watch repair shop?

    Which brings me to the current (recognized) gap in my own personal western-Panama knowledge database. Can you, or your readership base, come up with a “taller de servicios” for electric razors? My trusty Norelco rotary is making some strange noises as it makes it’s daily journey over my own physiognomy. Not to mention that it’s batteries (which are inaccessible due to a screwhead design unknown to western civilization) have some time ago stopped performing their portable duty and cannot be changed by the owner.

  2. Hi Rich – I am glad something on this pitiful site is worth remembering.

    Sorry I can’t help with a razor repair. They have gotten so cheap that when mine goes bad I just throw it away and buy a new one.

  3. Whoa! I remember paying $78 for this Norelco. If they’ve gotten so cheap, maybe that’s what I need to do.

    Wait a minute – what’s “cheap” in Donspeak?

    P.S. If you see this – then maybe your fix worked. But I’ll still try Tuesday.

  4. Well I have to admit that I have only seen the Remington version of the Norelco here in David and they were somewhere around $35. I think I have seen the Panasonic that I paid $90 for in the US selling for about the same at AudioFoto. I would not hold up much hope for finding a Norelco repair place around here.

    However if you do, let me know and I will post it. 😉
