For over 100 years, Feldmar Watch Company has developed from a humble business into the destination for watch aficionados, celebrities and collectors without ever losing touch with their roots. What began as a family business has remained a family business, complete with the advice, knowledge and open arms you would expect from those who care.
Feldmar’s success began in 1913, when Hungarian immigrant Jack Feldmar started a repair business fixing the broken, relinquished watches of Newark, New Jersey pawnshops. He repaired neglected timepieces for 15￠ apiece. When Jack’s wife became ill, the family relocated to Los Angeles where Jack established his own shop downtown on 4th and Broadway and continued working with pawnshop owners. Jack educated his son Barney in the art of watchmaking and repair, and the two formed a partnership that would become the foundation for the present day Feldmar Watch Company.
Another shining moment in Feldmar’s 100-year history arrived with the first electronic watch, the Bulova Accutron, in the 1960’s. The Accutron’s precision meshed perfectly with a timing company, so Bulova appointed Feldmar as the Accutron Center for the Los Angeles area. In due course, Feldmar became the number one Accutron Center in the United States, building further notoriety and strength.
It was with great sadness that the Feldmar family lost “Uncle Sol,” as he was fondly referred to by employees, family and friends, in 2015. Sol is deeply missed but his passion and his vision live on, especially in his son, Scott, who worked next to him for over 20 years and who currently oversees the business.
Feldmar Watch Company cherishes the personal approach while still cultivating new business. Scott is a confident leader, seizing development opportunities and ensuring that service remains a priority. Scott is responsible for the recent remodel and expansion of the flagship – now featuring Breguet, Blancpain and Omega Salons, and an impressive showroom of over 10,000 square feet.
