Feedback

It's really nice to get positive feedback from a happy customer.


Jeff - 
I have received my pocket watch right on time. It is exquisite, evenmore than I remember. Thanks again for accepting my repair. You are so busy and it is a privilege to have you and the knowledge of your grandfather repair my watch. I'm certain that it adds to its life, and to its value when it is time to pass it on. Thanks for the CD also. Yes it took a long time, but I read on another website an old story about watchmakers and the pressure they are put under by the customers and their bosses. That's why I never bothered you. It takes what it takes. The watches decide not the customer. 
So another happy customer and the another Rejuvenated Elgin. Be well myfriend.
