This is a wonderful business, including the best watch repair service in the
valley. Great family, great service, great feeling being in their shop.
Being a long time customer of this shop, not for trinkets or nutcrackers, but
clock work and the art of clock making this family has no equal in Utah. All the
sons have gone through an extensive apprenticeship of clock making and repairs
approved by the international clock making guild. They even have internationals
fame from visitors and manufacturers of specialty time pieces still in
production and out of production. Unfortunately, americas historical
time pieces and companies who made many works of art clocks and watches has made
it difficult to keep up with demands since they have to manufacture many gears
and parts some clocks and watches need.They are a part of history
and a life I think that is being threaded so severely by electronics I
don't know how long they can hold out and doomed to become museum
specialist restoration workers.
Buyer beware. This business is great if you are looking for a large selection of
nutcrackers. However, if you go there looking for watch repairs, you may be
disappointed. Their watch repair service is average, at best, and very
overpriced. Do your homework before going there and you will find that higher
quality repairs are available elsewhere in Salt Lake City, and at much more
Pay the higher prices and keep them in business! Enjoyed the story.
Best clock repair shop, bar none!!!! Because I was born in Germany, I inherited
a gorgeous cuckoo clock, albeit beat up after many moves, that my parents bought
in Germany around 1955. Mt. Olympus had it for nearly a year, but when they
returned it, the clock was in pristine condition and is now the centerpiece of
our dining room. I cannot recommend their craftsmanship highly enough.
I used to drive by there all the time, and always wondered about its background.
I'll be sure to stop in next time.
