Service and repair of VINTAGE watches since 1999  

Railroad Grade Pocket Watches - Wristwatches - Chronographs

My passion for watch repair began upon receiving two pocket watches in the mid-1990s: a 1920s Gruen Veri-Thin (fitting for a Cincinnati native!) and my Grandfather's Illinois 60-Hour Bunn Special. I soon learned (with invaluable help from two local watchmakers) how to dismantle, clean, repair and lubricate many different mechanical watches. I joined the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (www.nawcc.org) and received formal watch repair training from the American Watch and Clockmakers Institute (www.awci.com), including instruction on the service/repair of modern ETA automatics and the Valjoux 7750 chronograph.

I specialize in VINTAGE watches only. I generally do not work on modern quartz or mechanical watches. Railroad Grade Pocket Watches are still my favorite and I have serviced/repaired many grades, including: Waltham Crescent Street, Premier, Riverside, and Vanguard; Ball; Columbus; Elgin Father Time, B.W. Raymond, Veritas; Hamilton 940, 950, 992, 4992B; Hampden; Howard; Illinois A. Lincoln, Bunn, Bunn Special, Sangamo; Rockford; and South Bend. I also service and repair many different Vintage Chronographs, including Angelus, Excelsior Park, Landeron, Longines, Minerva, Movado, Omega, Universal Geneve, Valjoux, and Venus. Among Wrist Watches, I have probably serviced more Gruens (Curvex, Quadron, Veri-Thin) than anything, but if I had to pick favorite brands/models, I would say just about any Omega (Seamaster, Constellation, Speedmaster, etc.) and most vintage Longines, Tissot and Wyler wristwatches. I also have quite a bit of experience with Micro-rotor Automatics such as the Universal Geneve Polerouter and Hamilton/Buren Thin-o-Matics.

If it's a vintage watch, I can probably handle it!
