Gaetan Demers

Thought I’d revisit Demers Fine Watch and Clock Repair today. The original post contained only a handful of the images I got of Gaetan and his very unique and very fine watch repair shop.

This shot is one of my personal favorites. It show’s Gaetan in his watch repair shop taking a call from a customer. That section of the shop is separated from the main clock repair shop by curtains and a short narrow hallway.

This morning I paid a visit to Gaetan to show him the full set of images from that morning’s shoot and to check on the Waltham Watch I left for him to repair and clean (it is still in the queue).

I’m happy to say that Gaetan loved the images. I’ll be giving him a set of them as a gift for his hospitality.

As I was leaving I commented on the ornate clock you see below. A piece of art, really — Big Ben, partially rendered with watch and small clock parts. It is a piece that he restored, replacing the actual clock element.

Then he gave it to me. It looks pretty good in my office!

Thank you, Gaetan!
