It starts in Poland 1928 where a boy was born, his parents were poor farmers who lived off the land. 1939 was a life changing year for this 11 year old seeing his country being taken by the Nazis. In 1943 he was put into the German army not having much choice he did the best he could for the remainder of the war, nearly being killed by the liberating Russians.
For the next 2 years he was a private in the Polish army, in 1950 he was taken to England as part of the rebuilding of the work force. There he trained to become a watchmaker, eventually finding work for a company named Louis Newmark.
He remained for the next 36 years, while taking care of his wife and two boys, one of his sons, Robert joined the louis Newmark to start where is father left off.
By 1986 Robert’s trade had bought him to Adelaide, South Australia where he worked as a watch maker to this day, always offering Adelaide a better service he opened The Watch Doctor in Gawler Place Adelaide in 2003, while being very popular there was a need to expand to the ‘City Cross’. Where more people can experience the Watch Doctor service!!!
So here we are, from Poland 1928 till now 2006 (now 2010 as I write this online business for watch repairs).
I thank you for taking the time to read my story.
