Had a battery replaced in my Michael Kors watch this afternoon. While I was waiting, the staff kindly offered to polish my wedding ring and inspect the setting. I was in and out in 15 minutes. Will definitely be returning. Wonderful, small town experience.
I needed some work on an old mechanical chronograph watch with a Swiss movement. I visited some local repairman near my home and neighboring towns and they were either not really repairman and could not help me or quoted some crazy prices for repair ( I think they quoted a high price as to not want to work on the watch, others told me they would send it out and had no idea of the repair cost until it went wherever. I was a little frustrated and remembered that Clockworks repaired a mechanical chronograph for my father about 20 years ago (and it still works like new today). So I drove the 45 minutes to Clockworks, it was worth the trip. (The store is now located in Lake Bluff..34 E Center Ave Lake Bluff, IL 60044 a few miles North from the Lake Forest location shat shows up here on Yelp.

Clockworks have been servicing my chronograph work for several years, we always talk watches,and the manufacturers. Even though, it is not an expensive watch, he cares for it like it is worth thousands of dollar. I teased him about moving to this new location. On this visit, he told me to take my wrist watch elsewhere, because, he has been at this location 6 years, and have not seen my watch before. But he installed the battery that died out in the watch before he moved. And there is a jeweler in the shop now, he is very fun to talk to. The owner is nearing retirement, and had to replace my battery again!
By far the best clock repair shop in the entire area the owner was nice considerate and they got all the work done that I needed. Would recommend to anyone five stars easily.
Best clock repair in Chicago. Thorough, diligent and excellent repair work. Worth your trip if you don't live nearby. Super friendly and kind too. If 10 stars were an option I'd give them 10
