SPRINGFIELD — Celeste Wong is the latest entrepreneur to put her faith in downtown Springfield, opening what she says is a one-of-a-kind business.

Three months ago, Wong opened Celeste Watch Co. on Main Street, across the street from Plank Town Brewing Co.

Wong assembles, decorates and sells watches from the 600-square-foot shop, which is open four days a week. Wong also repairs quartz watches and replaces batteries. The business has a website where people can shop and order anytime.

Wong is a Springfield resident who began selling her handcrafted watches at Saturday Market two years ago. She said Celeste Watch Co. is the only woman-owned-and-operated artisan watch company in the United States.
