Earlier in the year, we repaired an Elgin 573 pocket watch for a customer in Mississippi. This was a difficult repair – the hairspring of this watch was not flat – it was helical to the tune of several inches when we removed it from the watch. We were able to repair the original hairspring after many hours of work. Thank you, Mr. Crabb, for your thank you note!
Dear Mr. Nowlin,
My deepest thanks and appreciation for the watch repair. My grandfather attempted to have it fixed sometime in the late 1960’s, and my father tried around 1988 and again in the Mid-1990’s. The Elgin passed to me ten years ago. The Journey is finished.

P.S. It is running well, keeping accurate time, and looks excellent
This was one of the most difficult repairs we have made all year, and we are glad it turned out so well for the customer.
