Omega watch repair – I found the Boston Watch & Clock Repair (BWCR) through citisearch and brought them my Omega Automatic watch from the 80s for repair. I was hesitant to bring it in as I tried in the past to have it repaired but botched on the steep price that other places charged - $250 just to look at it and then some... BWCR fixed my watch (which Omega no longer makes, the owner says, being automatic and not quartz-battery run) for $120, and I am so happy that after so many years, I now proudly wear my Omega watch again! Thank you, BWCR!

A watchmaker is an artisan who makes and repairs watches. Since virtually all watches are now factory made, most modern watchmakers solely repair watches. However, originally they were master craftsmen who built watches, including all their parts, by hand.
Modern watchmakers required to repair older watches, for which replacement parts may not be available, must have fabrication skills. A skilled watchmaker can typically manufacture replacements for many of the parts found in a watch.
A watchmaker, as the name implies, works primarily on watches, not clocks; the latter is called a clockmaker.

People interested in horology are called horologists. That term is used both by people who deal professionally with timekeeping apparatus (watchmakers, clockmakers), as well as aficionados and scholars of horology. Horology and horologists have numerous organizations, both professional associations and more scholarly societies.
A marine chronometer is a clock that is precise and accurate enough to be used as a portable time standard; it can therefore be used to determine longitude by means of celestial navigation. When first developed in the eighteenth century it was a major technical achievement, as accurate knowledge of the time over a long sea voyage is necessary for navigation, lacking electronic or communications aids. The first true chronometer was the life work of one man, John Harrison, spanning 31 years of persistent trial and error that revolutionized naval (and later aerial) navigation as the Age of Discovery and Colonialism hit a new gear.
The term chronometer (apparently coined in 1714 by Jeremy Thacker, an early competitor for the prize set by the Longitude Act in the same year) is used more recently to describe wristwatches tested and certified to meet certain precision standards. Timepieces made in Switzerland may only display the word 'Chronometer' if certified by the COSC.
