Absolute morons
Texted several times I was coming to pick up the items and pay with check. Never got an answer so texted again the next day and got the same non response. Went the next day and picked up the items and paid with my check. The very next day I noticed my credit card also had been charged so I looked on my receipt and there was the credit card charge for 17 dollars and some cents. Called them and they apologized but said they couldn't do anything about the 17 dollars. DON'T use this auction house. They are big-time rip-offs.

Hi Justin, oda You are correct, this is completely inexcusable. Though, I did reply to your January 28, 2023 02:34 am EST message on January 28, 2023 at 01:48 pm EST and copied our shipping department to take action. Though, it is very apparent the message was not received. As such, we are putting measures in place to prevent a disconnect such as this from happening again. Your purchase will be shipped today, 0/06/2023. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope that you afford us the opportunity to better serve you in the future as a store credit for the shipping charges are now available to you. Humbly,-Brandon Peck Auction Coordinator Hess Fine Auctions 1131 4th Street North Saint Petersburg FL 33701 727-235-0359

EXCELLENT SAFE & FAST Shipping_Need more disclosure in descriptions
Descriptions mostly accurate, but listing photos did not show that three screws were missing from the clock case (fortunately, I had close replacements). Also, although it was evident if a photo was closely examined, one of the clocks had an incorrect glass crystal glued into the bezel. Crystal on other clock also used modern glue to secure the crystal. Both generic winding keys could be made to work, but they were a couple sizes too big and loose on the winding arbor. Fortunately, I have correct size keys in my “arsenal”. STILL, overall I am very happy with the items, and plan to bid on more Hess auctions. 👍 😀

Thank you so much for the kind review! Yes, I wish all of our staff posting items could be as knowledgeable as our clients, though we do our best. While we have a wonderful watch/clock repair department, their tasks usually keeps them glued to their work benches. That said, we look forward to your future participation. Though, if you ever have any questions, we're happy to assist. Sincerely, Brandon Peck Auction Coordinator Hess Fine Auction
