Hello, I am looking for a watchmaker that has experience with Harwood movements. I have a very good piece from dial, case, crystal and hands. Movement just may need a very good cleaning.

Thanks.

A good friend of mine shows all his recent watch repairs in blogs on his site here:http://ambwatches.com/
He is a very accomplished watchmaker/repairer as can be seen. Just fill in the form on his site. Very reasonable too.

Many very capable watchmakers will have a hard time with a Harwood simply because parts are extremely difficult to find.

Jim Michaels in Gettysburg, PA is the person for your Harwood. He did a superb job on mine.

I think he has restored many of the pieces on display at the NAWCC Museum.

Good luck,

Hi gatorcpa,

Yes, but this is already th complete list of difficullties. The Harwood is not only the first bumper, but also most durable ever made. It will need no parts, and if ever the balance pivots are worn, a fitting staff can still be located, because it shares it with some volume produced calibres.

Regards, Roland Ranfft
