I provide service and and repair for antique and vintage pocket & wrist watches of the early 19th century to the late 20th century.
How To Proceed: Contact me and I can help you identify your watch and provide a rough estimate for service and repair. If you decide to move forward, the watch can be sent in for inspection and I will provide a firm quote. 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.
Communication: Being a sole proprietor, when you contact my business, you will be contacting me personally. Most of the work is done directly by me (exceptions may include specialized case repair). If you have any questions or concerns I will respond in a timely manner (if I don’t feel, free to bug me). Although email is my primary form of communication, nothing can take the place of a phone conversation. I am always available during business hours if you would like to call me.
Serviceing a Watch: This involves complete disassembly, mainspring replacement (in most cases), and minor adjustments or repairs while the watch is apart. See Service Checklist.
Parts: I also provide more involved repair such as balance staff turning, parts manufacture, and hairspring vibrating.
Digital photos are available upon request of the repair process and can be emailed before, during, and after work.
