The British watch and clock makers GuildThe British Watch and Clock Makers' Guild

We at Green and Cockburn Antique Clock Restoration are members of the British watch and clock makers Guild.

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE FORMATION OF THE BRITISH WATCH & CLOCK MAKERS GUILD

In 2007 the British Watch & Clock Makers' Guild celebrated 100 years of existence. The concept of forming a Guild was proposed by Mr. Bahne Bonniksen. Mr. Bonniksen during one of his lectures said "He felt that watch makers had to go through as much training as many professions and it seemed to him that they were going down hill and were becoming toy-makers rather than watchmakers". He thought this was due to themselves and that they should make their position one of some standing, for that reason he should like to see an association formed along the same lines as the ancient Guilds were to the trade - a Watchmakers' Guild for the whole of the United Kingdom. (It was not until after the first public meeting of the Guild that we became the Watch and Clock Makers' Guild.)
