In a Nutshell…
We offer a wide selection of timepieces in store as well as a restoration service.
We specialise in the restoration of Clocks, Watches and mechanical Autometa, from every period in history; from 18th Century Verge Lantern Clocks to Quartz Wristwatches of the present day. We also offer batteries, capacitors, watch glasses and a case re-plating service, and much more besides!
How to proceed…
Please call ahead or email, alternatively send us a facebook message, if you have a potential service or restoration project for us.
Please kindly note, due to the complex nature of horology, we cannot give out quotes prior to an in-person assessment.
We encourage all customers to book an appointment at our Showroom so that we can assess potential projects in person. On occasion we will ask for the client to leave their timepiece with us for a period of observation. Larger or more awkward pieces can be collected from a customer via prior arrangement – just give us a call, we’ll be happy to assist.
All Clocks & Watches will be assessed before work commences upon customer consent and any faults will be discussed and priced. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information regarding procedure.
The Dirty work…
Timepieces will undergo a three part cleaning and rinsing process, followed by careful reassembly, a comprehensive oil service and a two week timekeeping period, to ensure accuracy.
Chris is one of the few people left with the skills and knowledge to reshape and adjust balance springs and to re-rivet broken fusee chains.
Our extensive inventory ranges from watch glasses to complete movements, Renata batteries and capacitors. We use New Old Stock parts where applicable and have the skills to manufacture those which are obsolete. When oiling a movement we use our stock of discontinued and rare Microtime lubricant. We can also offer the choice of genuine (pork based) or synthetic ‘catgut’ for your weight-driven clocks.
Upon request, and for a nominal fee, we can set up any timepiece at your home or office.
We offer a 5 year Warrantee on all restorations – please see our Terms and Conditions.
