2013 Watch Repair and Restoration

Creative Silver

Watch-repair kiosks in every mall tout 20-minute turnarounds and expertise on everything from Timex to TAG. But theres only one George Thomas (known for his quick and cheap battery replacements), wholl scour for new parts for your damaged 60s (or older) heirloom, and tinker with broken links and springs until hes sure your timepiece is operating like, um, clockwork.
