In El Paso Texas, with a metropolitan population of almost a million people, it is very challenging to find a good craftsman regardless of the specialty (mechanic, painter, surgeon, attorney or clock master). Yet a skilled clock master, an artisan who repairs clocks, can be found in the likes of a Mr. Troy Huffaker of “A Precision clock repair” (915) 585-8900 services by appointment only. I had the fortune in taking my family heirloom large clock to Mr. Huffaker. Within a few minutes of his consultation I appreciated his confident, not arrogant manner and I knew that I had selected a true master clock craftsman that rivaled that of Royal clockmaker Antide Janvier. The enthusiasm, professionalism and intellectual honesty that Mr. Huffaker delivered was stellar. I rarely recommend tradesman however in the case of Mr. Huffaker I most fully and enthusiastically recommend the personalized and quality services of an experienced, trustworthy and very knowledgeable Master Clockmaker Mr. Huffaker, (915) 585-8900.

When my old (100 years +) Ithaca calendar clock quit, I took it to A Precision Clock Repair. It's a long drive from Alamogordo to El Paso, but that was my choice based on Google returns and the reviews posted on the site. I wasn't disappointed. Troy examined the works while I was there and pointed out several discrepancies and told me what he would do to fix them. I learned more about my clock (my late father's) than I had ever guessed. I'm a retired Air Force mechanic, but all this was way beyond my skills! Two months later, as promised, Troy called me to say he was done and the clock was working fine. And the cost was exactly what he quoted me. It's now keeping time better than at any time in my memory. Many people have worked on this clock over its long history and many military moves across two generations, but I suspect that none were as good as Troy. If I inherit yet more clocks they will go to Troy before anything else is done with them.
In the 30 years that my wife an I have been purchasing fine antique and new clocks we do not remember anyone telling us that they should be serviced on a regular basis. We should have known, but never thought about it until an antique grandfather and a mercury clock began to give us problems. We found A Precision Clock Repair on this website and because of the reviews and meeting in person, decided to entrust these very important pieces (important to us) to Troy Huffaker. His explanations are easy to understand, his demeanor refreshing and his work exemplary. We now understand from Troy that our clocks need to be serviced every 5 years and we will do so, but only with him. We both give Troy Huffaker our highest recommendation.
