You've found the home of American Timekeeper, the very best place for vintage pocket watch repair and restoration. These timepieces were an important part of the daily lives of our ancestors and it's our goal to preserve as many of them as possible, so we'll treat your heirloom watch like it was ours with a wide range of specialized restoration services for early verge fusees and vintage railroad watches that you likely won't find anywhere else. We don't do partial fixes because we believe in doing things right the first time with the preservation of our historical antiques, many of which are well into their second century of service.
American Timekeeper is a contributor to the American Horology Archive.
Imagine owning a mechanical work of art from an earlier century to tell the time, filled with tiny gears and moving parts, ticking in your pocket like a heartbeat. Many of the watches that we offer date all the way back to the 1800s and will be running long after your plastic smartphone gets buried in a landfill.
Every vintage watch sold through the Store has been completely restored back to original specs, meaning that all of its components are factory correct. Most of our watches are original combinations of dial, case, and movement, and are still intact from the day that their very first owners purchased them.
"This beautifully restored Waltham M99 is a typical testament to why I put my trust into American Timekeeper when it comes to servicing antique pocket watches. The watches that go through Eric's hands end up as close to perfection as possible. Eric possesses not only great technical skills but also vast historical knowledge about antique American timepieces and that is why his work is the best."- - Andras B, Romania
