This tiny shop houses a watchmender who really knows what he's doing and will not overcharge you for his services. I took a watch in last year which was damaged from sitting on my sweaty wrist in the summer heat: he examined the watch and discovered it to be full of rust; cleaned it meticulously, eventually declared it dead and charged me nothing at all for his time and trouble. He has mended other watches for me on the spot for a modest fee.
It's also nice that Clock Street is called Hang Bong.
Highly recommended.
