Service and Restoration

Mechanical Restorations

In addition to our restorations performed on our “Clocks For Sale” we can provide service and restoration on your clock. We treat every clock as if it were our own; our goal is not only to make every clock perform reliably, but to do our repairs aesthetically. We want you to not only be pleased by your clock's performance, but admire our workmanship as well.

We have trained in clock repair at the NAWCC School of Horology, and have been actively engaged in clock restoration and repair for several years. Every clock movement we repair or restore is marked with our initials on the backplate, signifying our commitment to your satisfaction.

Case Restorations

We can also offer you full case restoration services, including rebuilding, veneer work, turnings, and carvings. Most of the “new” woodworking outlined in our clock descriptions has been done in our woodworking shop. We can duplicate existing pieces which may have been damaged, or design and make entirely new pieces.

Metal Refinishing

As can be seen from several of our “Clocks For Sale,” we can provide professional metal refinishing on movements and cases, including polishing, bluing, and gold and silver plating.


A. Schweighofer AltDeutsch 2 Weight Regulator, Time & Strike
This was a work in progress, and the photos below are "before" and "after" shots of the clock as work progressed. This clock is a "marriage" between a very finely made Austrian movement made in Baden, Austria in the 1870s, and a very nicely made Austrian case, probably made in the 1880s. The... [more>>]
Achille Brocot French Marble Clock

THIS CLOCK WAS A RESTORATION PROJECT FOR A CLIENT, AND IS NOT FOR SALE. This English double fusee was made in 1850 by one of London's most prominent clockmakers.

Gilbert BimBam Mantle Clock
THIS CLOCK WAS A RESTORATION PROJECT FOR A CLIENT, AND IS NOT FOR SALE.

It had been found in a barn in Minnesota,... [more>>]

THIS CLOCK WAS A RESTORATION PROJECT FOR A CLIENT, AND IS NOT FOR SALE. This clock was in one of Charlotte's finest homes. The owner originally called me to repair her "Chauncey Jerome" clock.

Unsigned English 8 Day Time & Strike Movement
THIS CLOCK WAS A RESTORATION PROJECT FOR A CLIENT, AND IS NOT FOR SALE. I don't usually include work done on movements as "restorations", but this clock was an exception.
