I took my Grandmother's wrist watch to Father Time to be restored, but was sure it was not possible. I have been told by several jewelers that it was a basket case. Much to my surprise, the owner of Father Time said that it could be put back to original condition, using only original parts. They did the work, and when it was done, it was perfect! They restored the watch back to its original beauty, and presented me with the broken parts, showed me the details of how the watch was worn and broken, and now it works perfectly. Every time I put it on, I think of my Grandmother! I don't know of any place else that could have done this restoration. It is much appreciated!
