      My 'Antique Clocks' Background

      As a small child, still in short trousers, I can remember, quite vividly, standing in front of my great aunt's antique grandfather clock, after running an errand for her, sucking on a stripey "bullseye" boiled sweet and being SO impressed and overawed by the magnificent antique clock that dominated the whole room.

      I distinctly remember saying to myself "when I'm grown up I'm having one of these clocks".

      Little did I realise that many years later, after a 5 year engineering apprenticeship, qualification as a Precision Engineer and with various Engineering and Management exams under my belt I would leave the Aerospace Industry in 1988 and turn my passion for antique clocks into, not just a business, but also a way of life. I am extraordinarily fortunate that my engineering background has blended so well with my passion for antique clocks and has produced a livelihood and lasting friendships throughout Britain, and indeed, the whole world.

      I like to feel that I treat my customers the way I would wish to be treated myself and remind them that they're not just buying an antique clocks they're buying my expertise in selecting the finest proportioned, most original, examples available, which are then sympathetically restored to the highest standards under my personal supervision, using only the very best restorers and materials.

      Many of my customers have become personal friends and that's the way I like it. I do what I do because I love it. I'm VERY lucky. Great Aunt Dot's antique longcase clock had moonphases, which is what I specialise in. I wonder how my life would be if Great Aunt Dot hadn't had an antique longcase clock?
