The question I am asked most is, “how did you get into the
watch and clock business?”
My usual answer is, “it was a hobby that got out of
That’s primarily true. I've had a knack for taking things apart and putting them back together since childhood. I fixed my first vacuum cleaner when I was six or seven years old. After high school, I graduated from the Spartan School of Aeronautics in Oklahoma and spent seven years working in that field.
In 1990, I started fixing watches and clocks as a hobby. I enjoyed the work, and I found a market for my services. Over the next two years, the hobby grew into a business. I began doing contract work with other watchmaker’s and local jewelry stores. In June of 2011, I opened my own watch and clock repair shop at 2408 East Bridge Street in Brighton, Colorado.
I have an obsession with all things mechanical and electrical that tick or have motion, play music or any combination. I’ve repaired antique music boxes, slot machines, and motion lamps in addition to almost any kind of watch or clock. I have some of these unique pieces in my store to enjoy or purchase. You will find some truly unusual items in my store.
My business philosophy is simple and straightforward. If I can fix your watch or clock, I’ll tell you what’s wrong and what needs to be done to complete the repair, and I’ll give you a fair price up front to do the work. If I can't do the job, I'll let you know right away. I'm always glad to give you an estimate. Please bring your item in for an evaluation.
