Atmos Service / Repair
Lititz Watch Co. is one of the few clock service centers in the area that has the expertise to repair Atmos clocks. Atmos clocks are unique, and the fact that they require the skills of both a clock and a watchmaker. The repair and setup of Atmos clocks is so critical, for instance, that the minute hand must be balanced in order for the clock to run. Lubrication is also critical. Many points in an Atmos clock, if oiled, will stop the clock. Contact us and we will be happy to discuss the specifics of your clock, including proper shipping procedures, or bring the clock into the store and we will give you a free quote.
At Lititz Watch & Jewelry, we not only repair your Cuckoo clock, but we love taking part in bringing back the enjoyment that every cuckoo clock offers. We enjoy hearing the history behind each cuckoo clock, whether it came from the Black Forest while you were on vacation, or if a family member sent it home from being stationed over seas during the war. Each cuckoo clock has its own unique story and is rich in sentimental value and at Lititz Watch & Jewelry we are proud to be part of that history and are thrilled to help you re-live that joy.
We always give free quotes (not estimates) on the repairs. So whether you are in need of a few minor adjustments, or your cuckoo clock has fallen off the wall and needs a complete overhaul, or the case needs to be repaired, we would love to be the clock shop that fixes your cuckoo clock.

IN HOME SERVICE
Grandfather Clocks, Grandmother Clocks and some larger wall clocks are best serviced and maintained at your location. Lititz Watch & Jewelry provides on-site preventative maintenance and repair by appointment. We come to your home or office to service your grandfather clock, In most clocks, we remove the movement from your clock. By removing the movement we are able to get to the front, back and inside of the movement to remove most of the old dirty oil and to adequately re-oil the movement. Most clock repair companies will try to convince you that a movement can be cleaned and re-oiled without removing the movement; however this is not true. A serviceman cannot oil the front of the movement when the brass face is blocking the front of the movement, nor can they clean the inside of the movement while the movement is mounted in the case. It's just that simple. If the movement is not removed from the case of the clock, the only service you are paying for is to have someone squirt new oil on top of old dirty oil. Old oil with dirt deposits in it is an abrasive material and will wear down the soft brass parts destroying the movement.
What we do during an in home visit:
- Level and secure the case
- In some cases we remove the movement
- Clean the movement
- Re-oil the movement
- Re-install the cleaned movement (if removed)
- Adjust and calibrate the movement
- Test the clock for accuracy
- Watch & Listen the clock for any inconsistencies
Lititz Watch & Jewelry can help you prepare grandfather clocks and grandmother clocks for long or short distance moves. We also assemble and setup clocks, which have been moved to a new location. Re-leveling, oiling and minor adjustments are included in this service.
We make in-house service calls on grandfather clocks.

A word regarding turn around times:
We try to quote an honest time frame for your project. While there are many repairs and modifications we can execute rather quickly, movement servicing is not one of them. The movement service queue is always lengthy and I see no end in sight or practical solution to reduce the wait. Allow 60 days for movement services.
A note to local customers: We are open to the public and can accept hand delivery or pick up of your project.
