Delving into Luxury Watch Repair with Manhattan Time Service

Luxury watches are quite simply an essential purchase for any stylish chap with a love of the finer things in life and, fortunately, there are so many exemplary watch brands to choose from – ranging from Audemars Piguet through to Zenith and everything in between. A high-end timepiece is the ultimate status symbol and there really is no feeling quite like strapping on a Rolex or Breitling watch for the first time and, as these breathtaking timepieces will invariably cost thousands of dollars, you would expect them to last a lifetime. Given that the world’s leading watchmakers painstakingly craft these watches, this is often the case but there’s no escaping the possibility of accidental damage to a timepiece no matter how expensive it is.

For those living in New York, there is a bastion of luxury watch repair who are there to nurse damaged timepieces back to health and they go by the name of Manhattan Time Service. With over three decades of experience in repairing luxury watches, there isn’t a brand under the sun that they haven’t seen and repaired during this time. Under the watchful eye of the master watch repair specialist, Mitchell Lodowski, this family run business, located just off 5th Avenue in New York, have certainly repaired some impressive timepieces in their time. One of the most notable is that of the Ritz timepiece of former US President, Bill Clinton, who entrusted his presidential issue timepiece to their care – something which is testament to the quality of work carried out by Manhattan Time Service. You can see the work done on Clinton’s timepiece below:


It goes without saying that the actual process of repairing a luxury watch is more or less as intricate and complex as their construction in the first place so you need the right tools for the job and Manhattan Time Service have one of the best stocked workshops in all of New York, which you can see for yourself below:
