Alex was very helpful in helping me pick something for my boyfriend to wear. The watch I wanted was not mint so I asked him to get me a newer looking frame for which he did. We were able to customize it with a chrome frame. He even engraved the back of the watch which came out great! I love the handwriting on it. It's much better than my own. He added new straps and had it shipped to the US in a timely manner even though it came from the Ukraine. The watch still works too! Minus one star (half if I could) for the little bit of worn chrome which I may have to bring to a jewler to see if they can renew it. Also, the watch was not polished. It's hard to polish the inside corners with the straps already on. Luckily I have polishing wipes at home. Overall, vintage and custom is well worth it. Better than any department store watch!

About

My Mission : Give New Life To Vintage Watches.

We restore and repair watches and they keep their original form.

My team has mastered the method of vintage watches restoration!
We remove the top layer of the watch case and putting a layer of gold.
As a result - the new watch case, which will serve a long time.
And the mechanism remains vintage.

I always loved...
... mechanical watches, it is some kind of magic when one complicated mechanism consists of many small parts and gears, which are working together. I have collected watches for a while, but in 2012 I decided to open an Etsy shop. At first it was small, it was some kind of hobby for me. But step by step it grows and now my shop is my full time job.

Often watches which I find at flea markets are in very poor condition, but I think my mission is to help them keep alive, so in 2014 I opened another Etsy shop with restored vintage watches, and You are welcome to visit it!
