Watch Repair

I have been fortunate to collect several fine watches. The watchmaker I have used in the past is now in his 90’s. I have been a member of NAWCC for many years and Randall with Cleveland Watch Repair is also a member. I recently utilized his services on two of my watches. He is an absolute Pro on vintage and complicated watches! He totally disassembles the watches when he repairs and services them. I HAVE FOUND my watchmaker for future repairs and service of my watches. Randall is an excellent watchmaker!

Thank You!

Highly recommended!

Randall is a true pro--I can't recommend him highly enough. I sent him my non-working vintage Timex Electronic (after several watchmakers in New York refused to look at it) and he made it run like new at a reasonable price. He went the extra mile, replacing a burned-out electronic part with one from a donor watch. I've been collecting watches and dealing with watchmakers for 25 years and Randall's thoroughness and dedication to his craft are simply outstanding. Send Randall your watch--you won't be disappointed!

Thank You!

AMAZING

Sent in a Timex Camper watch I had had since I joined the service in 1982... it was running noticeably slow and sometimes would stop. No one else would touch this cheap thing. Randall did and now it runs and looks new.Also sent in a Wyler Incaflex Dynawind which has been in our family for about 50 years- it, too, is better than new.Randall knows his stuff. Highly recommended for ANY watch repair- if it has gears, hands, and a dial, he knows what to do.

Thank You!

1945 bulova president

I purchased a real nice 1945 vintage bulova president off ebay at a good price a few months ago. It wound, set and ran pretty good, except the stem was hard to pull out. The third time I set the time, the stem pulled completely out. Not being able to find anyone locally to repair watches any more, did a google search, found cleveland watch repair, and sent off an email. I mailed the watch in to Randall for evaluation. He was able to machine a replacement lever screw, completely, clean, oil and overhaul the watch, he even restored some of the painted (tiny) Bulova lettering on the dial that had worn off. The watch looks and runs like new, with just the right amount of patina. A very reasonable price as well. What a craftsman! Gonna send him another one soon. Thanks, Randall.

Thank you!

Highly Skilled!

I burdened Randall with a few hand-wind 1969/1970 Timex diver watches that I had collected after a recommendation from my brother-in-law. Best choice by far. I had slight concern because my watches aren’t considered “nice” or heirlooms, but it was all for naught. I never new that the winding should be that smooth. They were absolutely beautiful when they came back. He even got one running that I was certain needed a new movement. He is truly skilled and very professional. I’ll be sending a few more his way after some more daily wear. Thank you Sir for all the hard work!

Thank you!

Antique Waltham

I was recently gifted an antique Waltham pocket watch that belonged to my grandfather. It had not run in 50+ years and the beautiful gold decoration on the case had become dull with age, it was also missing the crystal. I was hesitant to send this watch to anyone given the value and importance to the family but Randall re-assured me that it would be in good hands and I'm so glad that I chose him for this overhaul. The watch now runs smoothly and he took the time to carefully hand polish all of gold pieces to return them to their original beauty. He clearly has a passion for his work and it shows - I would recommend him without hesitation and will be proud to hand this down to future generations. Thanks!

Thank you!

Helbros

I sent my Helbros IAM union presentation watch to Randall on 11-17-17. It had stopped & wouldn't restart after installing a new batt'y. Randall opened it up to find a piece of plastic had jammed the gears. He was able to free the movement,clean/lube, polish the crystal & also clean the case. My Helbros was back in my possession by 12-16 & in like new condition. I can recommend Cleveland Watch Repair on the basis of my good experience. Randall is also very easy to communicate w/via email, if there are any questions regarding work he is doing.

Thank you!

A Real Watchmaker!

I had my 1933 Ingraham "dollar" watch supposedly overhauled, regulated, and finally condemned to forever lose 6-9 minutes a day in accuracy by a "watchmaker" near me. He was of the "professional" opinion that "dollar watches were disposable junk never meant to be accurate or serviced".I googled "dollar watch" and found Randall's post on servicing two dollar watches and stating on his post that he loves working on them.I figured why not see what he can do.Now I've got my watch back and it looks cleaner, sets better, winds better, and sounds better than it did after the last "overhaul" done by the jeweler who claimed to be a watchmaker.I know Randall is the real deal because he had to do work to the balance spring, and it shows because now the watch runs +/- 30 secs every 24 hours instead of losing 6-9 minutes a day as it did before!

Thank you!

Pocket watches

I have now sent in two pocket watches for repair, one was a 1903 Rockford and a 1901 Hamilton. Both watches turn out like new again, just beautiful. I will always sent my watch repair to Randall at Cleveland Watch Repair.

Thank you!
