Finding Time Horology – Classic Timepieces
It all started with my grandfather’s watch. When it was given to me, it was in poor shape and broken. I have always been into mechanical things and restoration. I have been restoring classic cars professionally for over two decades. I figured I can fix this watch – how hard can it be?
I learned quickly that I needed to gather more tools, books, and parts. I reached out to Internet forums, gathered lots of information, and found many others with the same passions. I tracked down vintage tools and books, and dove in headfirst. My mission to restore that one watch turned into over 100 rather quickly.
I believe I am just the caretaker of these items for the time being, and to continue down this path I realized I can’t hold onto all of them. Therefore, I am willing to pass them along in the effort to continue to find new ones and bring them back to their former glory.
