    Watchmaker/Watch Repair in Cincinnati Ohio Area

    I have done a search and did not find anything. I am looking for a good watchmaker in the Cincinnati Ohio area. I don't have a pressing need, but am interested in finding a good watchmaker to service my watches as they are needed. I have previously been using a jeweler who sends the watches out, but that just adds overhead for no good reason. I appreciate your input in this matter.

    Ohio Watch Repair told me that servicing and replacing parts on my Bulova Oceanographer from the '60s would be no problem. He was very nice and seemed professional in correspondences. I'd check him out.

    Yes, he's even in Cincinnati and they are one of the first google hits for Ohio watch servicing. Odd that OP missed that.

    I saw them, but seeing a web page is definitely different than getting recommendations by folks who have used them. Have you used them and had good service?

    ETA: the search I was referring to in the OP was a search of this site for a similar thread.

    Gotcha. I have not personally used OWR but did reach out to Andrew last year for Omega servicing. I ended up sending my Speedmaster to Minnesota for a service at a slightly lower cost. BIG mistake! I am now going on 1yr without a properly running watch.

    After waiting 6mos for the service, my watch arrived running 5+ minutes fast per day. I've not received any response since returning the watch for evaluation and repair. Not happy one bit.

    I fully intend to have OWR perform my next service, especially since they're local.

    Bump on this thread, looking at sending an Omega PO to Andy, wanted to know if anyone had any experience with him.

    If you are "sending" it, why does he/she need to be local? I use Rik at Time Care, Inc.

    No, sorry, but based on conversations I've had with Andy, I will be giving him a try.
