Pieces of Time was established in 1992. Our retail shop is located in Newington, Connecticut. All of our service (both customer pieces and watches we purchase for resale) is done on the premises by the owner, Rick Littlefield. Our workshop is set up with the tools and equipment needed to meet the high standards of modern watchmaking. What sets us apart is that unlike so-called "production wholesale shops", we prize quality over volume and we do not service watches for jewelry stores or anyone other than our direct customers.

...There are no shortcuts to doing it RIGHT!



Our retail store is located at

154 Market Sq. Newington, CT

Case Study - Rolex Day/Date

Before becoming a professional watchmaker, Rick was a collector and his interest in horology began over 35 years ago. A watchmaker who is also a collector approaches restoration work with a perspective that goes beyond technical ability and having the proper tools and equipment. The ability to do quality restoration work requires both experience and respect for the integrity and authenticity of the timepiece. We have an extensive inventory of spare parts acquired over the last 30 years which enables us to restore your timepiece in the truest sense of the word.
