Huland Moore (born c. 1930) was a jewelry repairer and manager at Bromberg's Mountain Brook store from 1956 to 1996.

Moore graduated from West Point High School in Cullman in 1948

In 2008 Moore was asked to repair a Swiss-made Wittnauer watch owned by Gloria White of New York. The watch had been purchased from F. W. Bromberg on June 23, 1904 by Richard White as a wedding present for his wife, Olga. The couple later moved to New York and Mrs White passed the watch to her daughter, who gave it to Gloria. When she called jeweler Peter Kaplan about having the watch repaired, he found the "F. W. Bromberg" inscription inside and contacted Frank Bromberg III, the store's executive vice president. Bromberg gave the job to Moore, who, despite the difficulty of finding parts, was able to restore it to service.
