Welcome to Timekeeper Watch and Clock Repair!
What has served my customers well over the years is not claiming to repair all things for all people. If a particular item is brought in, such as an Atmos Clock (which requires special factory tools, training, and experience) I would tell you that I could not repair it. There is no keeping your item for months with excuses as to why it is not done. Instead, I would refer you to someone qualified to repair it.
Sure, I take on repair challenges, but not at the customer’s expense!
