How & When To Repair and Restore Antique Clocks

Friction and wear on clocks is extremely common, as with most mechanical devices. The assumption is that if a clock is working, it needs no service is wrong, in fact the way to preserve a lifespan of an antique clock would be to service regularly, which is why we offer a clock oiling and lubrication service to ensure that the metals do not cause any further damage with friction.

We understand that it may seem difficult to tell when a clock needs to be serviced or whether it has just been overwound, but we recommend a service every 4-5 years to ensure that the mechanism of the clock is still intact, and if needed relubrication.

When undertaking a complete overhaul we tend to follow a set procedure that ensures your clock is thoroughly examined for interior and exterior damage, all damaged parts can be replaced and then the timepiece will be reassembled to its original state

Our Process

  1. Dismantling the clock removing all its interior movement mechanisms
  2. All components are cleaned, removing rust, dirt and grease.
  3. A detailed inspection of interior parts that could have caused the build up of damage.
  4. Burnishing the pivots
  5. Checking all the wheels
  6. Reassemble the clock to see that all wheels are able to move correctly.

When conducting a complete clock repair minor or major problems can be detected, there is not always a guarantee that the clock may be restored to its original state. In some cases we can provide replacement parts to allow for the clock to function as before, however this may require extra time to source the parts required.

If you have an inquiry about a particular clock you feel needs cleaning, servicing or a complete overhaul please get in touch today to discuss options .
