Thread: Mechanical Watch Repair

    Default Mechanical Watch Repair

    Was wondering if anyone could help point me to a good watch repair shop...
    The wifey bought this handcrafted watch in Japan a couple of years back
    Made from scratch using recycled watch parts by this very old 70+yr old
    I have no idea what's wrong
    It's a wind-only watch ... which recently stopped working even when wound
    Would be a better option than to send it to Japan (tried calling the number and the person on the line couldn't really understand English)
    -------------------------------
    Endure. In enduring grow strong.

    Sounds like a beautiful watch. Do not know of any local watch shops that still deals with mechanical watches but if you would like to send it back to the old watchmaker, I can try helping bridge the language barrier. Cheers,

    I tried JW since it's right by my friend's workplace, pass the watch to him
    He was exclaiming they must do very brisk business - open on Tues and Thurs only, 1,3,5 closed for repair work
    Just got the watch back, it's working perfectly now
    Thanks for the suggestions

    yes pretty odd as well when their watches fly off the selves (literally) within 24 hours upon posted online. Some other shops, you can see the same watches been displayed for months and years on end.

    Probably it is because of JW's method of posting it online which enhances the watches' visibility to the online audience?

    JW resells watches at an amazing rate and better price than it's competitors.
    Good place to sell your watches there.
    TS -> Glad you managed to repair your watch, wanted to suggest you to go there.
