I am asked time to time for references. I'm sorry, I do not give out my customers e-mail addresses or telephone #'s, NO exceptions. I have asked a few of my customers if I could use some of their notes here, last names and e-mail addresses removed, and they have graciously agreed. Thank you to these valued customers! I will add other notes from time to time, with permission from the customers.

Scott - watch is great and was received a few days ago. Thanks for the prompt and affordable service. I bought this watch in Inverness around '94 and really like it - it's much lighter than my Rolex! Thanks again - I'll pass your name along.

Hi Scott,

The 3 watches have arrived and they look beautiful. I have wound them all
and they took right off running. I've set them aside to see how they run.
Thanks for all your work on these.

You've made me realize just how poor my local watch repair
resources are. The most "highly-regarded" repair facility in
Philadelphia, on Jeweler's Row (a one-block stretch of Sansom Street
that's given over entirely to jewelry retail, wholesale, and repair)
declared the watch "unrepairable. So much for that...at least I now
know what "unrepairable" really means.

Best regards,
Tom D.


Hi Scott,

The watches arrived today. Theyre both perfect. Thank you so much for everything. Ill make sure your business cards get into the hands of folks needing repair work.

Best regards,

Tom D.


Received the watch. You did a great job. Will not forget your talents and will pass your name along to some watch collector friends of mine who have the mechanical movements. That is your forte Im sure. Thanks again....my wife is going to love it since she gave up on it years ago and I just dug it out one night and looked you up on the web.

Just got home from vacation.

The watch looks and runs great.

 Plus the price was right.

 It is great to find someone that still has an interest in quality.

I received my repaired Seiko Kinetic this morning (in a dry box) and it looks great. I am hoping the new capacitor lasts longer than the original. Thank you very much for your prompt, quality service.

Scott,
I haven't had to think about my watch ever since getting it back from you. In
other words, my watch has been working perfectly.

Thanks,
Eugene


The watch is beautiful and works perfectly! Everyone who's heard the story is amused. Thanks for your persistence and fine work. I think I got a bargain.

Good luck to you, Scott. If I have repairs to do on any of my watches, I will contact you!

Scott,
I wanted to thank you for the great and quick service you did on
my Seiko watch. Your price was at least thirty-five dollars less than the local repair shop and it works like a charm. You'll have my
business in the future.

About Myself


The Federal Trade Commission wants to hear from YOU on the right to repair issue!

The Federal Trade Commission is requesting your input on how repair restrictions including the unavailability of spare parts is affecting your business or consumer choice of repair person/location.

On July 16, 2019, the United States Federal Trade Commission held a workshop on repair restrictions. Public comment has been requested as they look into repair restrictions.

You can watch a video recording of the workshop at ftc.gov

The FTC is trying to determine the extent and effect of repair restrictions as it determines whether it should implement any regulations or recommend any policy changes.

The bulk of the investigation has been focused on the repair of electronic devices like phones, automobiles, and farm equipment but this is your opportunity to try to steer the investigation to include watch repair and the restrictions imposed by manufacturers.

This issue affects all of us! Tell your peers and customers!

The FTC has made a request for public comments to be submitted before September 16, 2019 at the workshop website.

The more responses the FTC receives the more effective the response will be. The voice of the consumer is just as powerful (if not more so) than the voice of the watchmaker. Please make your voice heard today! Thank you!

For more on this issue please read below:

Repair Parts Restricted Brands

Please Read!

Mechanical watches require periodic service in order to keep them in proper operating condition. The cost of periodic maintenance is part of the long-term cost of ownership, which must be factored into any watch purchase decision.

We believe the watch buying consumer should have the right to have their watch serviced by the watchmaker of their own choosing and not be forced to obtain service only from factory repair facilities at non-competitive prices. 

We believe that an open market for repair service promotes competition, holds down repair costs, and is good for the watch consumer.

It is our understanding that the manufacturers of the following brands refuse to sell repair parts to independent watchmakers. In some cases, these manufacturers will not even sell repair parts to their authorized dealers. We believe this practice is unfair to both consumers and independent watchmakers.

We would further add that only through consumer pressure can this situation be resolved. We encourage you to contact your State and US Congressional representatives about this issue. In addition, inform the company or companies exactly how you feel about this policy. As long as the manufacturers are allowed to continue this policy, the consumer will suffer with higher repair prices in a noncompetitive environment. In addition, the future of the independent watchmaker, both in the United States and other countries is being called into serious doubt because of the lack of repair parts.

Anyone considering the purchase of one of these watches should inquire whether the brand will provide repair parts to the independent watchmaker of the customer's choosing, or if the watch can only be serviced at the manufacturer's repair facility. We hope you will consider this information carefully before making your purchase decision.
