A REVIEW TO REMEMBER
The following review is one of the most heartwarming we at
Bowers Watch and Clock Repair have ever received.
When I first entered the shop it seemed a little cramped and had
only two chairs for customers (one of which had a clock comfortably
nestled in it). Every square inch of the place is covered in clocks.
If you manage to get past the vaguely unsettling amount of ticking,
you'll quickly brush off that sanatorium feeling and recognize that
it's actually kind of cool.
There was one woman who walked in just ahead of me, intending to
drop off her watch for cleaning. The friendly gentleman behind the
counter informed her that if she had ten minutes he could do it for
her right then and there. She was very pleasantly surprised, noting
that it usually took a week. After he dropped her watch off in the
back, the gentleman turned to me.
I placed my boyfriend's Adventures of Tin Tin watch on the counter
and briefly explained that Tin Tin had stopped ticking. Since he
continued wearing the broken watch for weeks, and replacing Tin Tin
was inconceivable, I decided to fix it for the boyfriend's birthday.
The gentleman asked a few brief questions then popped the back off,
noted that everything looked okay, and went to get a replacement
As he changed the battery he pointed out slight bits of rust on the
inside of the watch. He said it was a common problem caused by mild
exposure to water such as washing your hands or sweating while
wearing the watch, but I should be careful. I was impressed with the
attentive service and dutifully made a mental note to make sure the
boyfriend took it off at the gym.
Ten seconds and ten dollars later the watch was good as new. I
thanked the gentleman for his help, and he smiled and said to come
back and see him, noting they had watch bands if it ever needed
replacing. I'm definitely coming back if I ever need my watch fixed
or if Tin Tin has any more misadventures. What a wonderful place.
Here are some other comments our customers have made:
I just wanted to thank you for your always willing assistance--at
no charge--to fix the broken/missing pin in my Timex watch band.
Yesterday was the second time I had such a problem, and you again
generously fixed it gratis as well.
For sure I shall remember you when I have a repair need that
you will let me pay you for. And in the mean time I shall continue
to send referrals your way as I can.
Thanks again for your kindness. It is a good business gesture
and one remembered.

Thank your so much for doing such a beautiful job restoring my
daddy’s watch. I cannot tell you how much pleasure you have
brought me by allowing me to wear this and feel this connection to
him. My favorite part is winding it every morning just as he
always did. Today would have been his 95th birthday.
You are the BEST! I am so glad Susie at Atlanta
Intown did that feature on your business just at the
right time for me!
Thank you again.
Dear Bowers Family,
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the time and
effort you spent on the repair of my Thirty Day Clock. It was quite an education for me to see the inner workings of
the clock. I am still amazed at how cleaver it works to maintain
time, what a lost art it must be!
Thanks again for taking the time to share the history with me.
I just wanted to drop a note of thanks as I was winding my
Grandfather clock today.
Your company installed a new movement in the clock while we were
still in Atlanta, then it was stored for 4 months before we moved to
Hilton Head, SC. We prepared it as instructed, and followed the
directions at our destination and today the clock is running and
I remember Mr Bowers telling me "Don't be afraid of the clock!". It
is such a pleasure to have this clock in good working order and also
a marvel to meet someone who is such an experienced clock repairman.
Thank you for your service.

Holy cow - go here! I dropped by to ask about a watch that just fell
into two pieces off my wrist when I was in the area. The man took my
watch, replaced a screw (free of charge) and sent me on my way in
less than 3 minutes. During that short stay, I heard another
gentleman teaching a customer about the life expectancy of clocks
made before and after the civil war, and what the customer could do
to extend the life of the antique he'd brought in. Clearly very
knowledgeable in his craft. I'm not a clock person, but I think
collectors would be happy here. I won't go anywhere else for watch
Thanks for the great advice on watch repair and great service. You
have a very cool shop and I appreciate how knowledgeable and honest
you were about the state of my watch and that you did not try to
sell me a fix you didn’t think would be worth the trouble. You
prices are very fair, and I will be a returning customer.
The owner of this
shop was so sweet and really knows his craft! I got my Swiss battery
for my TAG watch here while visiting from out of town. COST was a
Total if $10 and he did it in less than 3 min! Several other watch &
jewelers couldn't even do it and the place that I contacted prior to
finding this wonderful gentleman had quoted me two weeks because
they had to send it out and it would be $90. Crazy!! There were some
lovely clocks in here too! I highly recommend this honest small
