    Recommendation of antique watch repair/restore shops in Southeast USA

    Please share any experiences with antique watch repair/restore shops in the Southeast USA, in particular with pocket watches from the 1800's.

    The Links and Articles subforum has a thread on how to find watchmakers in the US. As to experiences, well, I find talking to the watchmaker directly is the best form of screening.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I have a watch shop in the Atlanta area I use quite often.
    Reasonably priced, but not the quickest.

    Since I don't have anything of that age in my collection, can't speak to their work on something antique.
    But they'll let you know if not something they can handle (they passed on vintage Timex autos & tuning fork movements for example).
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.
