I have two 8 day automotive clocks that need work. One is a Waltham stemwinder, like a 3 inch pocket watch, and the other is a Keyless Auto Clock Co., rim wind-rim set clock. Anybody know where I could send them to get repaired or what they might be worth?

Jerry, Unless you've got a close friend or relative who is a watchmaker, You might be surprised at the repair estimate. I bought an Elgin automotive clock on Ebay, knowing it didn't work. When I took it to my local watchmaker, his estimate was five or six times what I paid for it, but it was junk without repairing it, so I gritted my teeth and reached deep into my pocket. If I live another 40 years (not likely), I'll never see it sell for what I've got in it.

Jerry,

The finest watchmaker/repairman I have found is in Pasadena, Texas and is called Time Mart. The owner is Mike. It is at 5821 Spencer Highway, Pasadena, Texas. 77505 281-487-6645 or 281 487-6156. He has repaired several clocks for my cars and I collect clocks. He is very reasonable and I have yet to find one that he can't repair or have/make parts for in his miniature machine shop.
He just rebuilt an 8 day Elgin for me for $100.00
So give him a call. He will make you happy.
Regards.......Larry
