About Us

Preserving History

Before electricity and telephones, America ran on its railroads, and timepieces played a big part. At the height of the industry in the late 1890s, American companies made some of the most beautiful as well as the most accurate pocket watches in the world.

Restoring and maintaining antique American pocket watches of all makes and sizes since 2007.

My Dad found this Hamilton 993 laying in the weeds next to the Erie Canal over 40 years ago, and was my very first watch.
