The Antique Watch Company specializes in the restoration of the “can’t be fixed” and complicated antique pocket watches and vintage wrist watches including Hamilton, Elgin, Illinois, Omega, Longines, Patek Phillipe, Rolex, and Vacheron Constantin, just to name a few. All work is guaranteed, and estimates are given free of charge.


If you are an antique pocket watch or antique wristwatch collector, you know the importance of keeping your vintage watches serviced.  Send us your antique watch for a cleaning and service, repair, or for complete restoration. All watch work is done on our premises in our shop, by the store owner and watchmaker.
