Welcome!

You've found the home of American Timekeeper, specialists in antique pocket watch restoration.

There's much to see here, so take your time and look around. If you have any questions just ask.


Notice

 As of June 1st we will no longer accept uncased movements for repair because of the potential for damage during shipping, and we do NOT supply cases. It's always better to pursue original and complete examples, instead of rescuing battered eBay junk and then screwing around trying to find a case. Uncased movements are the result of parasites who gut watches for profit and the relentless greed of scrappers.
