TripAdviser Review Sep 2020
"Hidden", upstairs on Cuba St...selling watches, art and other unique gifts. surrounded by other great shopping, restaurants and bars. Well worth visiting.
Received via email:
"I was interested in a new release watch from NTH and was directed to the 545 website as they are an authorised retailer. I emailed them about the watch and received a swift reply from Ryan, who let me know when they were expecting the NTH watches to arrive and let me reserve my preferred choice of colour and no date option. A couple of days passed and Ryan emailed me to advise me that the watches had arrived. He included some photos so I could see the actual watch I had reserved, shared his observations and thoughts, and even placed the watch on a timegrapher for me. I decided to purchase the watch and 545 offered me an excellent price. Payment was made through PayPal, the whole process being secure and tracked. Shipping and delivery was fast and with full tracking, to my front door. The parcel itself was very well wrapped and secure. I was completely delighted with the watch. I could not be happier with the service I received from 545 and Ryan in particular. I would have no hesitation in buying from them again. Also, I am more than happy to recommend 545 to my fellow watch enthusiasts. If only all retailers were this good!"

“545 are amazing! I have two aged Seiko Divers watches that had ceased operating several years ago. I took them both to several watch retailers for repairs and in each case I was told that they could not be repaired…545 sent them away within a week or so they were back and working like new. Amazing!! If you want a special watch with service to match you’ve got to visit these guys.”

“I have always made a point of visiting Five Forty Five and Ryan whenever I am in Wellington. Ryan is very knowledgeable, very helpful and is always keen to help me. I have bought watches, Rolex cases, and a variety of other collectables from FiveFortyFive recently. I also keep an eye on the website, in case there is anything new that I desperately need! Ryan helped get me the watch I needed straight away – and had it delivered to my home here in Auckland. Great service, from a great team and a very special store for watch and time piece aficionados”.

“For years I have had a beautiful Oris watch sitting in my bottom drawer which didn’t work but I couldn’t bear parting with. Having been to several watch specialists who had told me it was beyond repair I brought it in to the good people at Fivefortyfive expecting them to say the same. A week later they came back to me saying they could definitely fix it and within three weeks it was back with new glass and keeping perfect time. I am seriously over the moon to have my vintage Oris back in action. It’s a gorgeous piece and Fivefortyfive made what I thought was impossible, possible. Thank You!”

"Just received my watch purchase. I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic protective packaging and the lovely wrapping. The watch arrived in perfect condition and I am stoked with it. If I'm in Wellington I will be sure to pop into the store and say hello and thank you personally."
