Vintage Watch Repair - Antique Watch Repair
Specializing in Vintage Watch and Chronograph Repair Service

This Circa 1950's Longines watch repair model was displayed at jewelry stores to inform
customers that a watchmaker was on duty.
Has your watch stopped ticking?  Has the gold or silver plating worn off the case?  Is the
crystal badly scratched?  Has the stem or winding crown come off?  Has the face become
discolored or stained?

Farfo's Vintage Watches offers reliable and prompt vintage watch repair service for
your antique watch.

We employ 3 highly skilled watchmakers with a combined 80 years of experience.  We stock
a large inventory of vintage watch parts and have access to watch material from many
sources.  Parts that are impossible to source can be custom made for your watch.  We can
repair basic manual wind watches or provide more complicated vintage chronograph repair
service.

Service of your watch includes complete disassembly and overhaul of the watch movement.  All
components are ultrasonically cleaned and inspected for wear.  Any worn parts are repaired or
replaced and the watch is oiled/lubricated and reassembled.  The watch is electronically timed and
tested to ensure it runs accurately for a period of 24 hours.  We perform this service at a minimum.  All
other antique watch repair services performed are in addition to the movement service.

All antique watch repair work is guaranteed for a full 12 months from the date of repair.  Parts
subject to normal wear, such as crystals, crowns, bracelets, etc. are not covered under warranty.  
Damage due to water, abuse or battery leaks are also not covered.

Estimates are free and are usually given within 1 week of delivery.  The watch owner only pays for
shipping and insurance charges to transport the watch.

Once you approve our estimate, simple cleanings usually take from 1-2 weeks.  More complex jobs
will take longer depending on the amount of work involved.
