A FEW WORDS ABOUT WATCH REPAIRS
No watchmaker without doing a complete examination of a watch can
exactly what may be wrong with it. Such things as
bent pivots, cracked
jewels and distorted hairsprings, and broken mainsprings, are all items that can
cause your watch to stop. These things will need to be corrected in order
for your watch to function properly. We will advise you of any parts that
need to be replaced or corrected after your watch has been fully examined.
There is no cost to you for our estimates. Our
estimates are free and without any obligation to you. Please note that we
only service American made pocket watches that are either 18 size or 16 size
only. We do not service any 12 size or smaller type pocket watches.
