Question
I have a timex mens goldtone watch, that my father had. I would like to have some work done on it so it will run again. The two shops I took it to wont touch it. They say its to fragile to mess with. It has 21 jewels, water proof, and has #68247957 an 12p66. Can those numbers help me get it fixed. The timex company says it to old, but they will take it back and send me a newer model. But I would like to keep it. Can you help me. And by the way love love love the Cat pitcured with you.

only thing I would do is CALL repair shops and tell them the story you have written above. you should eventually find some shop that has the same feelings about the watch as you do. Cat's name is "X" because when he came to the back door that first day we took him to the vet and they wanted to know his name -- we had not got that far -- so said "just put an "x" down for the name space--and it stuck! here he is over Chistmas sleeping with me on the couch...

Comment - On a scale of 1-10, I would give Mr. Saunders a 15 on each category. His responses were clear, addressed my questions and concerns in a way that even I could understand, and even sent a picture. He explained what I had and how to resolve the issue. I was amazed at how quickly he replied to each on my e mails. He shouldn't get a gold star, he should get a whole box of them!!! Thank you Mr. Saunders, I will keep you on my e-mail "speed dial". Comment - Ken answered my question regarding how to adjust the proper striking of the hammers on my Grandfather clock within a few minutes of my sending the question to him. He answered my follow-up question the next morning. I would rate him higher if there was a number larger than ten in the selection box.
