Clock Refurbishments and FULL Restorations

Many longcase clocks and bracket clocks have brass dials with silvered chapter rings, name plates etc. These can become faded, scratched or blackened with time. Some other clocks have completely silvered dials.

We offer a restoration service for all these types of dial.

If you have a clock with a moon phase dial which is not working correctly, we can both repair and make the necessary parts for it.

If you are moving home, redecorating or maybe just rearranging the furniture, it is a good idea to get a professional to move your clock for you. Pendulum clocks are particularly fussy when it comes to being moved and must be in beat (This simply means that the clock has an even tick) and completely stable for them to be reliable. Longcase clocks and most wall clocks usually require that they are firmly fixed to the wall. If you have already moved your clock and it is not behaving itself, we can set it up correctly for you.
