A Green Country man says he's frustrated a jewelry store closed without giving back the $1,000 watch band he dropped off for repairs. 

Jeff Parker says he took the band of his Rolex to Tulsa Time near 91st and Sheridan to get fixed, and now, he doesn't know what to do next.

While it isn't a family heirloom, Parker says the Rolex still means so much to him. 

"He was a captain pilot, and he flew over and saw the men from the USS Indianapolis. The Navy hadn't even found them yet," he said.

As a veteran himself, when Parker found a watch connected to someone in the military, he knew he had to have it. 

"This watch was just special to me because of the ambiance," he said.

The band of the Rolex needed some fixing, so he took it to Tulsa Time in July. 

He says he would check in every couple of months, but it wasn't ready, and when he went last week, the store was empty. 

"They would never answer or return my call, then every time I was in South Tulsa, another month or two would go by, I'd try to get over there," he said.

The Better Business Bureau says the store has an F-Rating, and once a store closes, there's not much the BBB can do to help, but say Parker's next option would be to file a civil lawsuit. 

Parker says he just wants the band back. 

"You can't wear a watch without a band or a bracelet, so I don't know what to do," he said.

Owner LaDonna Probst says they have moved from the location at 91st and Sheridan, and are now a mobile store and doing deliveries. 

She says Parker should have his watch band back by Thursday. 

She says they have been trying to transfer their business number, but it should be working by 10:30 on Thursday.
