Founded in 1971, The Clock Clinic Ltd. is a small family run business. With our wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise we are proud to serve London and the surrounding areas with fine quality antique clocks and have been offering a complete clock restoration and watch repair service from the same premises for over forty ears.
We carry a comprehensive stock of Antique Clocks from the 18th and 19th Centuries, specialising in English Longcase and Bracket Clocks, but with a wide selection of decorative French Mantel Clocks, Carriage Clocks and various Wall Clocks. In addition we stock a range of Antique Barometers of all types and a selection of Antique Pocket watches as well as Modern Wristwatches.
Our services range from full repair and restoration of clocks (both the mechanism and case) to overhauling and re-tubing barometers. All clocks and barometers are repaired and restored by our own craftsmen and come with a full one year guarantee. In many circumstances clocks can be delivered to and set up in the new owner’s home and we can arrange shipping worldwide if necessary. Additional services are dial restoration, cabinetwork and preparing valuations for insurance.
We also offer a fully comprehensive watch repair service. A variety of watch brands can be repaired including most of the luxury brands such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breitling, Cartier, Chopard, Tag Heuer. All work is undertaken by our accredited watchmaker and estimates are free.
Our premises house a fully equipped workshop with cleaning and polishing facilities. Onsite, we have three fully qualified Clock and Watchmakers, all certified by the British Horological Institute and members of the BADA, LAPADA and the British Watch and Clock makers Guild. Robert Pedler is a Liveryman of the revered Clockmakers Company.
