In El Paso Texas, with a metropolitan population of almost a million people, it is very challenging to find a good craftsman regardless of the specialty (mechanic, painter, surgeon, attorney or clock master). Yet a skilled clock master, an artisan who repairs clocks, can be found in the likes of a Mr. Troy Huffaker of “A Precision clock repair” (915) 585-8900 services by appointment only. I had the fortune in taking my family heirloom large clock to Mr. Huffaker. Within a few minutes of his consultation I appreciated his confident, not arrogant manner and I knew that I had selected a true master clock craftsman that rivaled that of Royal clockmaker Antide Janvier. The enthusiasm, professionalism and intellectual honesty that Mr. Huffaker delivered was stellar. I rarely recommend tradesman however in the case of Mr. Huffaker I most fully and enthusiastically recommend the personalized and quality services of an experienced, trustworthy and very knowledgeable Master Clockmaker Mr. Huffaker, (915) 585-8900.Tom Grady
When my old (100 years +) Ithaca calendar clock quit, I took it to A Precision Clock Repair. It's a long drive from Alamogordo to El Paso, but that was my choice based on Google returns and the reviews posted on the site.I wasn't disappointed. Troy examined the works while I was there and pointed out several discrepancies and told me what he would do to fix them. I learned more about my clock (my late father's) than I had ever guessed. I'm a retired Air Force mechanic, but all this was way beyond my skills!Two months later, as promised, Troy called me to say he was done and the clock was working fine. And the cost was exactly what he quoted me.It's now keeping time better than at any time in my memory. Many people have worked on this clock over its long history and many military moves across two generations, but I suspect that none were as good as Troy. If I inherit yet more clocks they will go to Troy before anything else is done with them.
Troy is a true professional and talented tradesman that you can trust to do a thorough and complete job. Nowadays, this has sadly become a rare trait amongst business practices. It was so refreshing to find someone that takes pride in their craft and is dedicated to getting the job done right. Troy is an honest person who will not scam you, so you can trust what he says. In the entire Southwest, I doubt you will find another Horologist like Troy. Certainly, he is the only person in El Paso that you can trust to get your clock up and running. As such, he is in very high demand and backlogged with clocks. Just know that once he takes your clock, it is in very good hands.
