(Carriage Clock and Ship's Clocks)

Restored French Repeatin Carriage Clock

Portable clocks include all clocks with balance wheels.  Usually, thes clocks employ a lever escapement with a bimetalic balance.  Such clocks inlude ships clocks (Chelsea, Seth Thomas, etc,) French carriage clocks and high grade desk and alarm clocks like those made by LeCoultre.

All of these clocks require to be service like a precision watch.  The pivots MUST be checked and renewed, the jewel holes checked and the escapement adjusted for wear.  In addition, many of these clocks have additional features (striking, repeating, or alarms).  Finally, French Carriage clocks must have all sttel work and brass polished since part of their appeal is the presentation of the movement in the glass paneled case.

The basic service charges are:

Marine Clocks

Parts that have to be installed or made will be charged as per the schedules on the Custom Parts Page and Additional Services Page.

In addition, I offer dial resilvering using the traditional techniques and  real silver.  The cost is $85.
