We recycle used watches and clocks of all makes and types.

Sadly, far too many useful watch and clock parts end up in the landfill sites when they are no longer needed by their owners. When watches and clocks break down, or simply become outdated, they often end up in a “sock drawer” or a special cupboard until eventually they are thrown out in the trash

Quite often the disposal of the pieces is carried out by someone other than the original owner who may not realize the value of the watch or clock. Our business is based on repairing watches and clocks. In his forty-five years experience as a watchmaker, Richard Brownbill has earned his fine reputation with both jewellers and public because of his technical skills and personal honesty and integrity. We would far rather see a valuable timepiece repaired, than end up cannibalized for parts. Whenever we receive a watch worth repairing we immediately notify that donor of its value and assessment for repair. Then they can make an informed decision whether to restore their watch or contribute to the recycling program. (which received recognition for The Recycling Council of Ontario in 2002)

The watch repair industry has been undergoing some major changes. Most new watches are being manufactured without any replacement parts being made; most old watches are now obsolete and no parts are available. Obtaining necessary parts to repair many watches, especially the older wind-up models, has become an enormous challenge for watchmakers. We search worldwide via the internet to find replacement parts! When we can rebuild or  re-use a part from a donated watch everyone is a winner: Our customer has their special timepiece successfully restored, and there is less non-biodegradable material in our landfill sites. Even if a watch received is not usable for parts, it will never end up in the garbage. Most watches, once batteries are installed, are then donated to our local shelters, or third world missions.

Simply use the least expensive method of mailing. If you are mailing from outside of Canada , please describe the contents as old broken watches for RECYCLING ONLY. Value $1.00 . Include your email address if you would like a response or assessment.
