Antique Swiss and American mechanical watch repair specialists since 1987


Thank you for visiting my vintage and antique watch repair site. Most visitors are here because they own an heirloom "family watch" and want to learn more about it's potential of being serviced and repaired. Most inherited mechanical watches were made in an era where the science of perfecting dependable timekeeping forced industry competition. The resulting jeweled watches are amazing and comparable to any science achievement in man's history. I encourage you to click through my antique watch repair site and learn more about my guaranteed mechanical watch services and welcome you to contact me.




I supply both watch parts to the watchmaker AND watch restoration services. Please read my website and contact me with any questions.

Oregon has no sales tax.


Allow us to restore your vintage mechanical timepiece with the devoted care and professional service every family heirloom timepiece deserves. We are not a production mechanical watch repair facility. We are a specialized shop, unhurried and uncompromising in our approach taken to repair and restore your early American and Swiss pocket or wrist watch. We provide pocket and wristwatch cleaning, restoration, overhaul and consultation.

It's becoming somewhat difficult to find a local watchmaker these days, we know. We hear it all the time. One that specializes in the old mechanical watches from the hay day of Swiss and American watch manufacturing is getting even harder. This by the way, is our specialty.

As a former Watchmakers Guild official, and out of respect for your local American Watchmaker, should you be in need of an antique watch repair service, check your local yellow pages first, and pursue his services first. If you run out of luck there, feel free to contact me. I'd like to gain you as a life long customer as I have so many families who know and respect what their mechanical watch needs and deserves.


Rogin Starweld Laser Welder:
If the exterior of your watches case and case back have clearly worn after many years of faithful use, we do have some options relating to it's restoration that I'd like to detail.  

There isn't a long-term durable approach to re-plating any such watch case with a  standard yellow gold color.  This improper approach that some use to re-plate an  item with a gold color is an electro-chemical process and simply isn't durable enough for standard use.  It'll look good for a few weeks and then it begins to look worn and quite ugly.  I don't offer this yellow gold plating service as it can cause more harm than help.

The only long term durable approach to re-plating any base metal case (brass foundation) is through rhodium plating. This procedure results in a beautiful appearance with the watch cases final color and sheen being similar to silver, white gold or platinum and not yellow-gold in color.   This process requires hand preparation, double copper plating and then a double  rhodium plating.  To restore your case to look new again begins at $200. This accounts for the extremely high price of rhodium ($1650 /oz.) and the many hours of labor involved.

Please examine the before and after photos and expect your worn case to turn out as beautiful as this one did.  Normally, most of the rhodium plating case restorations that I do are for families that have a WWII serviceman's wrist watch made by Elgin, Hamilton and Waltham yet many other watches will benefit from this case restoration process. Send along a detailed description of your watch and a digital photo if possible and I'll be glad to determine suitability and an estimated cost of this spectacular case restoration service.
