Clock repair

Japan With Kids - Forums: Repairs and Maintenance: Clock repair
By William Amsden on Saturday, June 24, 2006 - 10:26 am:

Does anyone know where to go to get an
antique wall clock repaired? The rod that is
struck on the hour and half hour to make
the
bell sound has severed. I have asked
around
with no luck. I live in Ebisu (between Hiroo
and Shibuya.

(I admit this has nothing to do with kids
but my daughter was the one who
convinced me to keep the clock instead of
throwing or giving it away...)

Thanks

You could try the shop I've listed below
(I'm sorry, I can't find the phone number,
but Mr. Taga, who must be in his 70s, is
supposed to be one of the best in the
business). I also know of a clock repair
shop in Azabu Juban, on the main
shopping street, on the corner nearest to
Starbucks (closed Tuesdays). There's
bound to be someone at one of these two
places who can help you, or direct you to a
repairman. Japanese adore clocks, and
the old ones are really worth hanging on
to (as your daughter so cleverly intuited!)
Good luck!

Taga Watch Service Center

cho, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo

You could contact this shop and ask them for some ideas

The shop is in Yokohama but it is quite well known and has been around since 1903.
