My wife and I brought in my family’s grandfather clock to see if the clock maker at father time could fix it. The owner was very helpful and gave us the history of our clock and told us how much it would cost to fix. We just picked it up today and they did a great job beyond our wildest expectations. We can highly recommend father time.
Came in looking to explore the inventory I'd seen online. Connected with Jim via email before arriving, and when I showed up he patiently walked me through every part of the process. Everything from how a mechanical watch operates to a frank discussion of the investment return I could expect in different brands and products. Low/no pressure sales tactics, just pride in the products and confidence in the work. Selected something special, and will be bringing friends with a discerning eye here in the future.
I have entrusted them with my family heirloom cuckcoo clock over two hundred years old. They are taking their time putting it in original condition. I can’t wait to pick it up. Thank you.
I recently brought a pair of eyeglass frames I damaged to the store where I was hopeful they'd be able to repair. I was there for no more than five minutes and they were done and ready to go. Excellent staff!
They did a great job on my antique clock. Accomodating staff and very knowledgeable. Bit on the pricey side, but you get what u pay for. Would recommend then for antique clock and watch repair.
I brought them a 1950 General Electric clock that I bought at an antique store west on Belmont and they did an A+ job at restoring it for me. They oiled the woodwork, polished the brass, and replaced all of the degraded components on the inside. It's now on my nightstand and it's looking great. I worked with Jim Reynolds and had a pleasant experience. These people are the best at what they do, hence the price. I just bought yet another antique clock and I'll be bringing it to Jim as well. Father Time Antiques is world-class.
Watch repair and fast battery replacement. Good selection of rare watches, awesome clocks.
Check out the amazing selection of antiques.
Brought in a 50's Omega Automatic to be serviced. They really did an excellent job, the watch keeps good time and cleaned up nicely.
Father Time owner's extensive knowledge of antique and contemporary time pieces is outright impressive, down to every detail of a mechanism, historic or modern. His two repairmen are meticulous - lots of experience and surgical precision. But what I find to be an extra guarantee of the workmanship is the pride they take in their work! The only way they will repair a piece is the right way - no shortcuts, "discount" craftsmanship, material substitutes, or cutting corners. And I know - I had several items fixed at Father Time. So did some of my friends. Read the reviews on Yelp. Father Time's is a highly specialized craft and as soon as you start talking to the people working there, you know they are about expertize and quality.
