Is it a passion or obsession?

For me there is nothing as beautiful as a fine pocket watch ticking away. Mechanical machines with tiny hand made parts, some so small that you can barely see them with the naked eye. Not only were they meticulously made, but often they were decorated in a way only seen in the most expensive watches made today. Once these watches get in your blood it is impossible to put them down.

Classically Trained

Since I was a little boy, I always loved tinkering with watches but you can only learn so much and I had a lot of questions.

I decided to enroll into the British Horological Institute’s watchmaking school, the oldest watchmaking school which was established in 1858 in Nottinghamshire England. It was a 2 year course that  refined my watchmaking skills and gave me not only a new level of skills but increased my love for Horology.

There I learned every thing from making watch and clock parts to diagnosing problems with timing

Ethical Practices

It’s simple, I do business and treat every customer as I would want to be treated.

Communication

Nothing can be more frustrating than to not know whats going on when you have a piece in for servicing or repair. Because we are dealing with vintage restorations sourcing parts sometimes can be hit or miss, I have found that as long as I communicate to my customers with regular updates, even if there is going to be a delay, knowing the status of the work being done is one the most importent things and is what we always strive for.
