8-31-23: Sadly, we must announce that we must temporarily slow down accepting new projects to the waitlist. If you are already on the waitlist, we will do the best we can to honor your position. If you are new to us, we hope to open up new projects to our waitlist some time in early 2024.
In addition, we must update our shop rates for the first time in 15 years.
These changes go into effect 9/1/23. They are not a result of illness or any other factor of that nature. They are strictly due to backlog and rising costs.
As a guideline, restoration fees will typically follow this schedule:
SWCC Style F Movement and case: $950 and up
SWCC Style F Movement only: $650
SWCC Style A/B/C: Add $200 to Style F
3-Train Chime Movement only: $750
Vintage 3-Train Movement and case: $1200
Telechron (and similar) Movements: $395
Alarm clocks, movement only: $395
Please be aware that the above represent typical numbers. We cannot have standard costs for restorations since so much can vary. Also, it’s impossible to provide guidelines for every style and type of movement we restore, and every service we provide. Providing a more specific quote range is only possible with the movement on the bench, and numbers can go up or down from the above depending on the specific issues found.
With rising costs and inflation, we simply cannot keep the shop open at previous rates (which have been in effect for nearly 15 years).
As always, we will continue to honor all warranties and maintenance for previous customers in a timely fashion, as long as the work is not so extensive as to require a full restoration again. This is extremely rare.
We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.
