Pocket and Wrist watch servicing and repair

Cleaning, oiling and repair services for antique and vintage pocket watches & wrist watches of the early 19th century to the late 20th century.

Estimates are free.  A rough estimate can be provided over the phone, and refined upon inspection.  If you opt not to proceed with the work before the watch is disassembled, the watch will be shipped back to you, and all you pay is the cost of shipping. If the watch has been disassembled, then  nominal re-assembly fee will be requested.

Digital photos are available upon request of the repair process and can be emailed before, during, and after work.

Cleaning and oiling involves complete disassembly, mainspring replacement (in most cases), and minor adjustments or repairs while the watch is apart. See Service Checklist.

I also provide more involved repair such as balance staff turning, other parts manufacture, and hairspring vibrating.

“My emphasis is on good communication, honesty, and fair service to the customer. I pride myself in quality work. If any repair is beyond what my shop can handle or I cannot do the work in a timely manner, I will let you know and refer you”  Joel
