My apologies. I have too much work, and will not be taking in any watches until I am caught up. I will probably be taking watches in again in October 2014. My phone number and the 'sending your watch' link with my address will be restored when I am caught up. Thank you.

Please contact me first (preferably by telephone ) before sending any watch to me.
My hours are Tuesday to Friday from around 11:00 to 5:00. I do not have a walk up shop and I no longer take watches in person; so please be aware that, even if you live in the Portland area, you will need to mail your watch to me. Details for doing so may be found by clicking on the sending your watch link at the top of my website.
If you are in the Portland area and your watch just needs a battery, or band adjustment, I suggest you call Klein Jewelers (downtown on Washington Street, tel: 503 226-6748) or Batteries Plus (NE Broadway, tel: 503 546-4962). If you do not want to mail your watch to me, and are outside the Portland area you should contact AWCI (American Watch/Clockmaker Institute – tel: 866 367-9800) for a referral to another watchmaker.
Many watches are not cost-effective to repair, have worn-out parts, or parts that are not available. So please, before sending any watches, e-mail or call first to discuss the problems you are having with your watch or watches. Please give details as to the make and model and what repairs may be required. I also require that the Sending Watch Form from my website be filled out and enclosed with each watch you send. The link for forms you can fill out is at the top of the page (the Sending Your Watch link).

Please, before sending your watch in for repairs, E-mail or call me with details as to the type of repairs your watch might need. I then do not end up with a lot of un-repairable watches in my safe, and you do not waste your time or money either.

I work out of my house and do not have a retail shop. That means you will have to mail your watches to me for repair, yes even if you are local. For a form to send with your watches, Please click on 'Sending Your Watch' at the top of the page. Thank you.
There are literally thousands of Elgin watches, from pocket watches to wrist watches. If your Elgin watch is older than ten years old, I can probably get parts for and repair your watch. However, I cannot get parts for the newer Elgin watches. Due to parts availability, if your watch is newer than ten years old, you will need to contact the M Z Berger Company http://www.mzb.com/, who own the Elgin brand, and send it to them for repair.
If you have a question about repair of your Elgin watch please do not hesitate to E-mail or call me (Stephen Thomas) with your questions. Also it takes a good deal of time to answer your e-mailed questions, so do us a favor and turn off your spam blocker for firstname.lastname@example.org and please empty your mail box so my reply doesn't get sent back to me. Leave a message on my answering machine indicating what kind of watch you have, what is wrong with your watch, and your telephone number. Stephen Thomas Quality Watch Repair (503) 239-1859.
