Movement and case restoration and repair work.
We can help you by restoring your fine and valuable antique clock
work of art or fine antique item of furniture. We specialise in
antique clock movements and cases by using techniques and tools as
were originally used.which will obviously enhance the value
Our emphasis on using original materials in this modern age is somewhat unusual as a lot of restorers have found it beneficial to use modern materials which sometimes unfortunately can react with older traditional organic base substances but maybe quicker.
Our museum standard of restoration is called upon by clock collectors
who are discerning in the restoration process, we often receive
inquiries from prospective clients who have seen a clock at an auction
or at an antique shop who ring us regarding the authenticity of the
item they wish to buy.
It is quite common to receive a movement for restoration that is extremely rusty, perhaps it has been sitting in a shed or garage for many years. This movement will be inspected, any worn parts will be replaced, the broken wheels will be remade, any worn pivots or pinions will be replaced, the movement will then be cleaned and reassembled to the original standard.
