Dial Repair and Restoration
In partnership with two local restorers I carry out dial repairs and restoration for enamelled dials, ceramic dials, porcelain panels and painted dials.
Brass and silvered dials are restored in house. Damaged or missing spandrels can also be replaced. I offer polishing and lacquering as well as silvering.
In the past days of journeyman repairers, perhaps working at the side of the road, calendar and moonphase mechanisms were disabled due to the fact that they were 'clock stoppers'.
This was often done by removing gears and levers. I can design and replace any missing parts to reinstate these charming but often overlooked features.
All work is undertaken only after a full and detailed consultation with you, the customer, during which, with the benefit of our extensive experience, we can offer advice as to the correct level of restoration necessary to maintain the integrity and value of your piece.
All work is carried out using traditional materials and methods.
