I was trained as a watchmaker in Dublin by Charles Healy, late of West & Son. In 1971, I was awarded first place in the British Horological Society worldwide final horological examinations and awarded a bronze medal.


I have over 50 years of experience of antique watches and am considered a top professional in my field.

A few words about me…

My name is Brian Gallahar and I work from my home in Ceathrú Thaidhg, Co. Mayo, Ireland. I specialize in the restoration and repair of antique and vintage watches, and throughout the years, I have accumulated a vast stock of old watch parts.
I am very fond of the old pocket watches, fusee verge, fusee lever and cylinder escapements. I also love to work on the old American watches, Waltham, Elgin, Hamilton, etc.
The Geneva made watches of the 19th and early 20th century were of superb quality and should be preserved for future generations to admire and cherish.
I am always delighted to receive calls and emails to chat about old watches and should you have an old watch in your possession, please contact me.

Dear Brian, Many Thanks for the time, care & attention to detail you have put into the service & repair of my Antique watch. It made me very happy to look at what is a ‘beautiful’ time piece. You have made it difficult for me to sell it. I want to wear it myself, it’s that nice. We will do more business & I will put your name out with my colleagues. Until the next time. Patrick.



Brian did a wonderful job of repairing an almost 100 year old trench watch that had a broken lens and missing hour hand. The watch was returned in better condition than it ever had been, yet still retaining it’s original features and authenticity, greatly exceeding my expectations. The price was also reasonable and service first class.
