I cannot say enough good about Joanie, she really knows her clocks. I didn't think my clock could be fixed, but, she did and it works just like when I first bought it. I liked her from the first, because I knew the way she talked she was a Christian. Good job well done BLACK BEAR. I highly recommend Joanie "THE CLOCK LADY" When she brought my clock back, she went over every details, and some things I didn't know about my clock.



Great experience from beginning to end. Joanie is knowledgeable and did not push a very expensive repair on us. She explained the options and recommended the less expensive fix. The clock was fixed within 30 minutes, was cleaned and shined and we left very happy. Good Christian people would recommend them to anyone needing any kind of clock repaired.



I am an avid clock collector and enthusiast. I found out about Joanie, the Clock Lady, from a Vender at the Highlands Festival in Abington Virginia. My dad had left me a Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos clock which doesn't get wound or plugged in but is the closest thing to perpetual and is very hard to find anyone to work on. I drove quite a distance to have Joanie work on that clock for me and I see now why a man in Virginia recommended someone who was so far away, he said she was worth it. Joanie has now repaired about a dozen or more of my clocks. She gives free estimates and sticks to them no matter how much extra work she finds the clock may need. I don't bother her timeframe wise when she has them for I know she calls when it's done. She stands behind her guarantee for sure. She has several of my clocks right now - so I highly recommend her. If you want your clock fixed right - contact Joanie LaTorre. She is a pleasure to work with and very knowledgable.



Took an old mantle clock we bought at a yard sale to Joanie, got a history lesson and the clock repaired! She was great to work with!! Her knowledge on clocks is amazing! She fixed it, and showed us everything we need to do to keep it running for years to come. We will be taking our other old clocks and watches to her for repairs.



Black Bear Clock Repair took care of my Grandfather Clock as well as my sister's cuckoo clock and my brother's two grandfather clocks. An absolutely wonderful job was done on all of the above. We have had no problems with any of their work and recommend them highly to anyone needing clock repair done. Joanie LaTorre was honest and fair in her pricing and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. She took the time to teach me how to run my clock and gave us information on the makers of all our pieces. I would certainly use her services again in the future.



My new grandfather clock was not working right and I was waiting for new works to come in Called Black Bear Repair Joanie asked if they could come and take a look. They came and in less than 15 min they had it repaired. Thanks Joanie



Thanks to Joanie we are again enjoying the sounds of our 35 year old mantle clock. I was extremely fortunate to find someone so passionate about her work.



Joanie La Torre is just wonderful!!! She was able to repair my 43 year old Chalet Cuckoo Clock from West Germany. I tried to find someone to do the repairs for 27 years, with no luck. After a lot of time and careful consideration, Joanie was able to restore my clock back to its former glory. I am so grateful to have found her and to welcome back such a wonderful piece of my childhood. Thank you Joanie. I never thought I would see this clock up and running again. You pretty much did the impossible with this one!!!

WOW! You are ever so kind and sweet.... Thank you. I love clocks! This is what I do.... I don't do it on the side, this is all I do. I do all the work for Dollywood and for the Clock Peddler in Gatlinburg. I had a shop in Florida for 28 years and still go back there every other month picking up clocks and repairing them for them and returning them again and bringing back the next load. I am a Christian lady. I do my best and I try to be fair and BEST OF ALL!!! I STAND BEHIND MY GUARANTEE! You have a problem or an adjustment needs to be made, YOU LET ME KNOW!!! Thank you for your kindness. May God Bless You! Please tell sooo many about me... THANKS
