We just want to take some time to wish everyone a very Happy

Special Notice About Rolex Watch Repairs.
Over the last 45 plus years we have serviced thousands of
Rolex watches. They have been one of our
It is our sincere desire to return to our original roots of
our watch repair business which was and is the
Seems To Be Getting Back To Normal.
We hope everyone is doing OK. We have been keeping very busy
with many different types of wonderful pocket watches. We have had many Ball
Railroad pocket watches come in for service and many Howard pocket watches
arrive with several being railroad grade types. Ball and Howard watches
have always been some of our favorites. So stay safe out there.
Basket Case Watches.
As of late, we have been getting many “Basket Case” Watches
where people send us a box of parts and want us to assemble and make one good
watch from a box of junk. We will not get involved anymore with those kinds of
projects. All this does is put us behind on servicing watches from our
With All Of The Concerns Happening In The World, We're Still Busy At Work.
There are many concerns in the world as it relates to the pandemic spread of the virus. So far where we are located, there have been only three cases reported. This is a good thing. Many retail outlets have been ordered closed. We remain OPEN as we are not, nor have we ever been open for walk-in business. We have continued to service pocket watches for our valued customers. However, due to some postal requirements, we have been slightly limited as to the number of packages we can ship. This is about two to three items depending on the packages. Most generally, we have been taking packages to the Post Office. This helps out the carriers that work so very hard to make sure items make it to their destinations.
We want to especially thank our valued customers for their
business. Some repairs have been delayed, as many of our suppliers were forced
to close. Some of them are opening back up on a limited basis. I suppose we will
all get through these troubling times if we all work together with love and
respect for one another. Please take care and stay safe.
We Hope Everyone Had A Very Merry Christmas.
From all of us here, we hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.
We also hope that the New Year will bring all of you much joy and happiness. We
are continuing making changes here, and there will be some services that we will
no longer perform. We are done restoring rust filled watches due to water
damage. It's to time consuming and the cost of these jobs are not worth the time
it takes to restore them. Also, we will no longer service the very old vintage
Oyster watches that were made beginning in the 1920's. We will keep doing the
Oyster type of watches that are current productions and no older than 50 to 60
years. We will also start selling a lot of new watch parts. We will always keep
doing and repairing American made Railroad pocket watches along with the lesser
grades of American pocket watches.
Have A Blessed Thanksgiving.
We want to wish everyone a very happy and a blessed
Thanksgiving. Also, after having our Toll Free phone number since 1999, we
decided to no longer have our toll free number. Our provider has become very big
over the years and it became sort of hard to get in touch with customer service
for support. So we will soon have a new number. When we have it we will let you
know. We will be back next week. So have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
Complicated Watch Restorations.
Over the last few weeks we have been involved in several
complicated pocket watch restorations. As of today, we have completed most
of them with only one to go. This last one involves an early Hamilton 992. It
was missing so many parts and the case was missing the stem, case tube which
required some very detailed lathe work. So now that we are coming to the end of
these special projects, our normal watch service and cleanings and maintenance
and overhauls of wrist watches and pocket watches will proceed as normal.
We thank all of our customers for their patience and understanding.
Trimming Up Our Website.
We have been removing many pages from our website. We eliminated
our Gallery of Time and today we eliminated four pages of Fun Photos which
showcased many events and activities of our travels around the country and local
events that took place in our local area.
Some New Changes To Our Shopify Online Store.
We will be making some changes to our online store. We are most
likely going to move our store to a new provider within the next month or two.
The changes will enhance the customer and the buying experience. We will keep

We are in the process of making some nice changes to our
Website. Soon we will be securing our site via Hostway. They have been
hosting our website for well over twenty years, so the process will be rather
New Things And Phone Calls.
We have made some changes when it comes to answering phone
calls. We get a lot of calls and many times we simply can't answer all the
incoming calls because we might be already on the phone or we are busy working
on a job or running polishing machines or doing lathe work. You can leave us
messages and even if you don't leave a message, we will try and return your call
as they do show up on our call log. Also you can email us with your questions.
We do get a lot of emails and it might take a day or two for us to reply.
Thanks for being our customers.
Happy New Year.
