Yuri’s Watches

Yuri’s is little more than a table and a display case jammed in the back of a jewelry store called Small Pleasures. Luckily, Yuri really knows how to fix old watches. Not only did he once fix a World War II chronograph that baffled lesser creatures, he unfroze its ancient stopwatch function. While Yuri works his magic, you can covet the pricey Hamiltons in the display case.
