While the skill of watchmaking might sound like a lost art, it’s a career that is alive and well, though not as prominent as it used to be.
And just like a car requires its oil change, your watch requires regular maintenance.
Located right in Newtown, at 12 Penns Trail, Suite 109, you’ll find Time Marc, owned and operated by Marc, a CW-21 Certified Watchmaker (of the 21st Century) who grew up in Bucks County.
“Repairing broken gadgets has always been a passion of mine and I followed my dream to make it a career,” Marc says.
Today, there are only about 150 watchmakers in the US with Marc’s certification.
He is classically trained in the art of Horology (the study of timekeeping and watches).
A horologist must have an eye for creative precision. To become a watchmaker, one must become familiar with each facet of a watch – from the miniscule gears that keep a watch ticking to the beautiful crystals that give it unique design.
Sometimes winding your watch or replacing the battery isn’t a quick fix. There may be underlying mechanical issues that need to be addressed.
Marc can disassemble and diagnose your watch, movement and all components necessary. He will clean, replace or repair worn or damaged components using genuine parts and apply oil/grease according to each watch’s specifications.
Every watch is created differently!
After careful reassembly, Marc will do a thorough recalibration, timing and test phase of your watch.
“I am proficient in all luxury watch brand repairs including Rolex, Omega, Breitling, Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe and many others,” says Marc. “I look forward to meeting you and taking care of all your timepiece needs!”
Don’t be late! Make sure your watch is running on time.
