WATCHMAKER Robert Lowe has taken time to expand his business into Ely - and in just one year it has proved successful.

Robert, who grew up in Soham, opened Two Ticks Watch Services in High Street Passage after running successful shops in Cambridge's Grafton Centre and Newmarket.

His business, which employs seven people in the three shops, offers

customers a wide range of new watches, to suit all ages and tastes, and watch repairs.

Among the displays, customers will find all the famous names, including sports watches made by Casio, traditional timepieces from Seconda and Seiko and top fashion items from Fossil and Storm.

A wide range of children's watches are also on offer starting from as little as £10.

Robert carries out all watch repairs on- site, which means there is no need to send them away to a middle man, thereby keeping costs down.

Glass repairs, replacing batteries and resealing waterproof watches are all offered at the shop.

Robert says he has plans to expand the business further in the near future.

INFO: Two Ticks Watch Services, 4 High Street Passage, Ely. Tel: 01353 658716. Open from 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday and between 11am and 4pm over the next three Sundays leading up to Christmas.
