Leading watch repair specialists
We've built our reputation on our impeccable watch repairs and cleanings. Our customers know that every single watch we service goes through one of our master watchmakers. Without fail. They often have more hours logged repairing the insides of the world’s most precision watches than the watch on which they work has hours logged on its owner’s wrist. Trust the masterpiece on your wrist to the world’s finest watchmakers – ours. Call or write today to experience what your timepiece was meant to be.
Watch repair service & restoration
If the dust, moisture, impacts, and vibrations don’t wear down your wristwatch, then the everyday mechanical strain placed on its moving parts will. It’s a fact of time; eventually, even the most elegant of timepieces wear out. Entropy doesn’t discriminate between Rolexes and Citizen.
Preventative upkeep is the key to your timepiece’s longevity. Just like an automobile, a regular cleaning and maintenance schedule will extend its life and improve its performance. And just as a Lamborghini’s finely-tuned engine probably needs an expertise beyond the local shop’s capabilities, your precision watch needs the unparalleled knowledge of a master watchmaker.
How do we do it?
The watchmaker opens the case back and removes the movement.
The mechanism is entirely taken apart; the parts subjected to the greatest stresses are replaced, including the mainspring and the automatic winding mechanism’s reversing wheel.
Without exception, all parts are carefully cleaned by our state of the art, computer-operated cleaning machine.
Our technicians then painstakingly reassemble the movement. During the reassembly phase, the watchmaker judiciously lubricate various parts, using only the specified types of synthetic oils, in the exact recommended quantity and method of application as specified by the original maker.
The technician returns the optimally lubricated movement to its case. The watch is then placed on a computerized timing machine, where its rate is tested and adjusted until it falls within specific tolerances.
Finally, the watch is subjected to a visual inspection and a strict check of its technical functions. In order to ensure accuracy and perfect reassembly, an automatic watch winder simulates a 4-day period of everyday use.
After your watch has been cleaned and repaired by the latest scientific methods, under the purview of some of the finest craftsmen in the world – after it has been adjusted and checked for defects in workmanship – after a visit to Manhattan Time Service, you will own a timepiece as close to the original watchmaker’s image of perfection as it can ever be.
Because we believe in the perfection of our master watchmakers’ work, and because our customers’ perception of that work is of the utmost importance, we guarantee our work one year (1 year) from the date the watch is returned to their rightful owner.

What our customers have to say:
I have an extensive collection of fine watches, including minute repeaters, tourbillions, perpetual calendars and various astrological complications. For many years my timepieces, that required service, were returned to the factories in Switzerland. In many cases I waited months and months for their return. I would encourage anyone faced with the same choice to consider sending their cherished investment to Manhattan Time Service. I have been more than satisfied with their service because at a minimum it is the equal to and in many instances has surpassed the factory service I have come to expect. I have yet to bring them a watch that has not been repaired to my satisfaction, at a fair price and in a reasonable amount of time.
It is with the utmost confidence that I recommend their services to anyone who may need them. I wear my watches with the greatest pride, feeling that they deserve to be worn and not just collected and displayed. It is comforting to know that a remarkable craftsman like Mitchell not only shares my love and enthusiasm for timepieces but also has the skill and ingenuity to maintain them.
Prior to the holidays, I brought in a Vintage 14K gold Omega bracelet watch that had stopped running. You were successful in locating the broken part, replacing it, cleaning it, and fixing it. It runs as good as it did when I bought it in 1974, and the beauty of it surpasses many new watches of today. I highly recommend your company to handle these valuable pieces with care. I enjoy wearing my watch again, get numerous compliments on it, and I have your company to thank.
I recommend your service highly and give my permission for you to use my comments as you see fit.
Thank you, again.
