All of our work is carried out sympathetically utilising a mixture of traditional hand skills and 21st, century technology where appropriate. The aim is always to keep the clock both looking and functioning as the original maker intended.
Having restored many thousands of clocks over the years we have the knowledge and skill required to make any missing parts in the style of the original.
Between us we have over 80 years of experience in the restoration of fine clocks and have been privileged to have been entrusted with some of the country’s finest clocks by important makers such as Tompion, Knibb, Graham, East and Fromanteel to name just a few. Whatever your clock, you can always be sure that it will be worked on sympathetically and with the greatest of care.
Please telephone 07860 378122 or email if we can help with any type of clock repair, or the complete restoration or conservation of a much loved heirloom.
We’ll be happy to arrange an estimate or quote and talk to you about what needs to be done.
