Antique Clock Repair
November 8, 2012 7:29 AM   Subscribe

I need to have repairs done on an antique clock in the Los Angeles area, but I'm unsure who would be reputable. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding a good place to get an initial estimate? Or is there a way to find good reviews for this kind of sevice?

Thanks for your help!

Try the NAWCC business directory. You can filter by Clocks -> Clock Repair and select California for your state.

I had a hell of a time finding someone who was competent to even touch the chronograph out of the ME-109 fighter my grandfather brought back from WWII. I finally found an amazing craftsman with museum level credentials who was overbooked and expensive but honest. Me mail me for his info.

I had my antique time clock repaired at Montana Clock Shop on Montana Ave. and they did a good job.

I can recommend Executive Watch in Montrose. He modified watches for the Mars Explorer Team at JPL to keep Mars solar time.
