My exposure and interest with Watches and clocks, began at the early age of eight, working in the family business along side my Dad, who was a watch repairman trained at The Waltham Watch Company under the G.I. Bill, in the late 40"s. Although I am not a watch maker myself I have collected many items over the years, all the while, concentrating my efforts in the study of Gemology. Currently , I provide Appraisal Serves to the Jewelry Industry and Auction Houses, and operate Two On-line businesses. One is Hill Chapel Silver, a vintage Sterling Silver, Earring Line, highlighting Genuine, Natural Stone Components, and Two, a classic, Vintage and antique collection of Watches from around the globe under Hill Chapel Antiques. The names are derived from the 1862 Historic Chapel that I own with my wife, called the Hill Chapel, primarily used as a Wedding Venue .
