San Francisco Antique Watch Repair

I'd like to find a San Francisco based antique watch repair shop that does impeccable work. Price is not an issue, as the watch is the only thing I have from my great-grandmother and is of the utmost sentimental value. The wristwatch is silver, with no visible manufacturer's mark, and is approximately 85 years old. The face needs cleaning and the mechanism likely is in decent shape, but needs cleaning as well.

Looking for a watch that does the basics extremely well

Looking for a watch that tells near-perfect time, doesn't require winding or battery replacement, has a comfortable band in hot and cold weather and will last at least 10 years. It just needs to show the time and preferably the date. It's either got to be something very special, or at the lowest price which meets the above standards. Style and uncomplicatedness a bonus.

Looking for a small wearable periodic alarm

I am looking for a small device that I can either wear or carry in my pocket that will beep, ring, and/or vibrate at a pre-set interval. (I'm thinking every 15 minutes.) I am an easily distracted individual, and I think that this would help me focus on what I should be doing at the moment.

How can I get my 20+ yr old Timex windable watch fixed?

I own a windable Timex watch given to me about twenty years ago. I have been using it for the past few years without problem, but now it doesn't seem to keep time very well. Timex HQ says that they won't fix it because of its age and parts likely being unavailable. How can I get this watch tuned up/repaired? I'd like to keep it - great sentimental value plus my name engraved in the back.

what's a good military watch?

I'd like to buy a new watch, a rugged military sort of thing. Problem is, every company says theirs is the one the actual military uses, and they all seem to boast the same qualities. Does anyone know a good, authentic high-quality pilot's or such watch that's not outrageously expensive?

Time to complain

I have a three-year-old Swiss Army officers watch that I took to a (trusted) jeweler last week to have the battery replaced. The next day condensation appeared inside the glass and now the thing has gone kaput. It had been working fine up until the battery died (and for a few hours after it was replaced). Do you think the jeweler is liable...or am I out of luck? Any advice before I return to the jeweler to complain?

When is a watch not a watch?

Smelly Watchband

My watchband is starting to stink. This happens to all of my watches. I've tried many, many things including soaking them in bleach (I usually only wear metal-banded watches. Largely because they last longer before stinking). Nothing has managed to stop the stinking. I like this watch. What can I do?
