For years, or to be closer to real, decades, the expression, “Do you wanna buy a watch?” said with with a raspy voice, meant you were hearing a commercial for Howard Frum, THE “watch” man in Jewelers Row.Jewelers Row is famous for its extensive amounts of watch and jewelry stores, but Howard Frum is one of the most popular shops of the bunch. Loyal customers keep turning to Howard Frum for their watch and jewelry needs because of the terrific selection from all over Europe, not to mention terrific staff with excellent customer service.

Those who love wearing the famous Rolex brand, but cannot pay the Michigan Avenue prices, have found that Howard is a Godsend, allowing them to have the status they sought but at a price they can afford. His service department can and will make sure that whatever brand you own, your watch will always run as it did from the factory and will look as if you just opened the box. In fact, if you look at the “Google” reviews, they are all five star.
I have known Howard for many years and when I am in the loop, stop by for a cup of java or a soda and talk about the good old days. His days on the near west side and Rogers Park and watching the changes in our wonderful city. While we tried our hand at many different things along the way, both Howard and I found that it was our “people skills” that drove us to find the perfect business to utilize the talents that we have- working with people and finding ways to exceed their expectations. I have chosen ad sales plus my theater reviews and other writings to do my “thing”. Howard has chosen to be the “watch maven” for Chicago. I am proud to call Howard Frum my friend and once you visit his shop and get to know him, his family and his staff (you could easily call them his extended family, as they have been with him forever) you will also feel this way.
