The Resurrection of an Antique Gruen Timepiece: A Testament to Craftsmanship at Manhattan Time Service – May, 2023

Gruen Watch Resurrection repaired by Manhattan Time Service

🕰️ Another MTS success story! We’ve recently breathed new life into a beautiful antique Gruen watch. Here’s the tale in bullet points:

1️⃣ The watch arrived with a cheap quartz mechanism, a far cry from its original glory. This replacement had diminished its value to almost zero. 💔

2️⃣ We sourced the original manual mechanism, showcasing our commitment to authenticity and quality. 🕵️‍♂️

3️⃣ Our expert watchmakers carefully replaced the quartz with the original mechanism, bringing the timepiece back to its true self.🛠️

The restoration of this Gruen watch serves as a reminder:

Authenticity Matters: When it comes to antique watches, the value lies in their originality. A cheap replacement part can massively depreciate their worth.

Choose Wisely: Trust your valuable timepieces only with professional, reputable watchmakers.

Experience Counts: Manhattan Time Service has been in the watch repair business since 1978, and our expertise speaks for itself. We treat every watch with the respect and care it deserves.
