About Us

I've always had a fascination with mechanical clocks. When I was growing up, my family had an old mantle clock that had been in the family for a couple generations. I loved to hear the clock's rythmic ticking and melodic chimes, and when it sometimes faltered, I would try to coax a little more life out of it before we had to take it to a clockmaker for service. Decades later, the clock is in my own home and after a couple of trips to a clockmaker and the apparent need for yet another repair, I decided to learn how to maintain the clock myself. By this time, I had accumulated three additional clocks, including one antique wall clock that no longer worked. I enjoyed servicing my own clocks so much that I started taking courses on clock repair and started repairing clocks for friends. I also started thinking about starting a business that could grow slowly until I retire from my full time job in a few years. In early 2006, I decided to take the plunge. Unfortunately, the business didn't produce enough income and it was closed at the end of 2015.
