Hello Orchid, as someone who just recently got into goldsmithing
through the Revere Academy, I’ve been lurking here about a year and
soaking up all the
My current dilemma is not about jewelry, per se. I would like to
have my grandfather’s pocket watch serviced. It is white gold and
worth and was appraised at $1500 in 1991, but it is irreplaceable to
me, as I never knew my grandfather.
Anyway, I now live in a rural community thanks to my husband’s Air
Force career, and there are no watchsmiths that I trust in the area.
Please, does anyone know of a good one that works on antique watches
anywhere in the country that is insured or bonded appropriately? The
piece is in fine condition, and keeps time almost perfectly. It has
just been sitting around for about 50 years and needs to be oiled
and cleaned so that I can wear it.
