ABOUT MY SHOP

When entrusted to me, your clock will be repaired properly, and will not be given a makeshift repair or "tinkered with".

Clocks are repaired using brand new, factory-genuine parts, and not with "used" or old parts "from a junk box". In fact, I don't own a "junk box" at all (many clock repairers do own one, and use this "junk" to repair peoples' clocks), and I keep in stock and on-hand a large assortment of brand new factory genuine parts for a large variety of modern clocks that have been manufactured since 1960. In fact I have the most extensive inventory of new clock parts and complete replacement clock mechanisms in the Boston area. These parts are in-stock, on-hand, and are ready for use in your clock repair.

All clocks that I service are bench-tested, timed, and adjusted as required, before being returned to you "good-as-new" with my two-year performance guarantee.

Please browse my web site to learn more about me, my shop, and the services I can provide. If you have any questions, or if what you're looking for is not here, please call, fax, or e-mail me, and I'd be happy to answer your inquiry. Please see my Contact Page for phone numbers and email address.

Battery powered clocks:

Most such clocks can be repaired, by replacing the original mechanism with a new one. I have brand new mechanisms and parts in-stock (new mechanisms, hands, hardware, pendulums, batteries, etc.) for most type of quartz battery clock that have been made since roughly 1970, including current and prior models of such brands as: Seth Thomas, Howard Miller, Sligh, Verichron, New England Clock Co., and others, including generic and no-name clocks; novelty clocks; specialty or homemade clocks from craft stores; clocks from yuppie "boutiques"; and clocks from tourist destinations and places.

If your battery clock has a pendulum, chimes, gongs, or just "tells time", and if it was made since about 1970, then I probably have repair parts for it, IN STOCK.

My shop even stocks parts for, and cheerfully services, the large round or hexagonal wall clocks that are 2' feet (or more) in diameter that have large hands, or that have a sub-second hand dial (above the number "6" on the main dial). These clocks require a special mechanism called a "high torque" unit (to power the large hands), and my shop stocks every type of high-torque and sub-second mechanism that's currently manufactured.

Battery Conversions:

If you have a wind-up (mechanical) clock that you would like to have converted to battery-powered operation, this can be done in my shop. Please inquire. Also see 31-Day clocks below.

Electric clocks:

I can repair some electric clocks; others I cannot. For those that I cannot repair, I can convert or "retrofit" your electric clock with a modern quartz battery mechanism in most instances.

30-Day and 31-Day clocks:

Many popular wall clocks are called "30-Day" or "31-Day" clocks, because on a full winding they operate for a month, or, for about 30-31 days. Typically these clocks say "30 Day" or "31 Day" on the dial (the face). Often times the brand name on the front of the clock is Waltham or Elgin, but there are other brand names too. Your 30 Day Clock or 31 Day clock was probably made in Korea or Japan or China.

  If you need a replacement clock key (winding key) for your 30-day or 31-day Japanese, Chinese, or Korean clock, click HERE.

I supply replacment winding keys for these clocks if yours is lost, damaged, or worn out (see above), but if your clock is not running properly, I do not repair these clocks in the "traditional" sense of the word "repair". I have developed a method by which these clocks can be converted to battery-powered operation, which changes the inner mechanism from mechanical or "wind up", to "battery powered".
