TESTIMONIALS

 

I would like to say thank you for the work you have done on my two watches recently. Two separate, unusually intricate jobs of removal and resizing of watch bracelets were performed skilfully, promptly, and with patience and good humour. I was very concerned that my treasured possessions may not get away without a scratch or two, but I needn't have worried, the job was completed perfectly!

I will definitely be coming back for further work if needed, and will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone whose watch or clock needs attention.

Thanks again,

J Dunbavand

 

Many thanks for the repair on the Guardsman clock - first time we've seen it working and it's been in our family since around 1930. In my office and ticking along nicely

I was searching online for a company that could restore some family items that used to belong to my grandfather who sadly passed away over 30 years ago. The items included a clock, temperature guage and barometer. Two items badly damaged that needed a lot of TLC. I found Clock Corner online, made contact, and arranged an appointment for the items to be looked at. Pleasingly, they felt they could be repaired and restored, and as of today after 30+ years, the items are now fully working and hold pride of place on my bedroom wall, in memory of a grandfather long passed.

Thank you for everything!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the help and specialist knowledge that you imparted which enabled us to complete our grandfather clock. When we started out it was a woodworking project, but we knew that when the time came we wanted it to have an authentic clock mechanism.

Only when we started looking online for this did we realise that we were in a minefield, and needed to talk to someone. Again, online it became evident that specialist clock places were few and far between but having been to your shop a few years ago with a mantle clock, we thought perhaps that's where we should start.

We couldn't have chosen a better place! Thank you so much

After many years having my inherited grandfather clock standing silent, Keith, with his incredible knowledge and expertise has brought it to life, as well as bringing back fond memories of my grandparents clock. Keith collected, and after time working on it - delivered the clock back to us in pristine condition. He spent time with us explaining to us in detail how to look after our clock. The time and care which has been put into restoring the clock is clear, Keith has transformed it back to its former glory! The sound is wonderful, listening to the strike is fabulous - thank you, we appreciate all your time and knowledge

Just want to say a big five-star thank you to Keith for sorting out our problem, he managed to talk us through and rectify the chiming issue with our Grandmother clock simply via a phone call. Many many thanks for your excellent service!

Keith, many thanks for your visit today. Your expertise is clear and your diagnostic skills hit the right spots. We have missed the family clock and are delighted to have its sounds in the house again.

I recently received a gift of a Dan Dare pocket watch, similar to one I was given as an eight year old boy. The watch did not work and the case was badly dented. I therefore asked Clock Corner to help and I could not be more pleased with their service! The watch has now been serviced, and without my asking, they were able to fit a new glass and locate and fit a replacement case. The watch is now working perfectly and is a wonderful reminder of my childhood. Thank you and well done to the Clock Corner

I just wanted to say thank you for the repair on the Grandfather clock, I'm loving it AND the date wheel! I've wound it up and not broken it! Long may that continue..

Thank you

I recently brought my antique wall clock into your shop as instructed during a previous phone call. I had been recommended to your clock repairing service by several friends and also the jeweller in Castle, although I had been warned that you were rather expensive!

However, on taking my clock into your shop and explaining that the hands kept falling off and the chime was no longer working, the gentleman asked me to wait whilst he found a replacement screw and reconnected the chime etc, there and then. I couldn't have waited more than 10 minutes for the repair to be completed by the horologist and I was pleasantly surprised that he only charged me £10 for this service!

I wanted to let you know that I am absolutely delighted with the service I received and that I shall definitely be recommending your shop to all my friends.

Thank you very much for the time and trouble you have taken on my late mother's clock. It had not worked for over 50 years, it is lovely to now hear it striking on the hour and half hour, and it has pride of place in my dining room.

The care you have taken both with the mechanism and the wood casing makes it gleam with pride again!

Thank you for your expertise and professionalism, it is much appreciated.

I have just had my 18th Century Longcase clock serviced and the case restored. I am delighted with the result! The clock is working beautifully and looks fantastic back in its place. The expertise, skill and knowledge were of the highest quality whilst the antiquity of the piece was sympathetically preserved. Highly recommended. It was not a quick job as the case had to be sent to a specialist, but that did not matter to me.

I am very satisfied with the works carried out on my Edwardian wall clock, restored back to its original condition, keeping good time, and I'm enjoying its chimes again!

Mr Winstanley, Warrington

 

Fantastic customer service!

Visited the shop for a watch battery replacement but the guy actually took the time to check all of the internals for me (having previously visited a terrible watch repair shop who had made a hash of my watch) which was both helpful and kind. He was very knowledgeable and even fixed a few bits. A rare form of customer service in this day and age! He was also very reasonably priced.

Thank you for a job well done - our clock is back on the wall tick-tocking and chiming as new, after an overhaul at Clock Corner.

A professional and efficient outfit, we are well satisfied!

Keith at Clock Corner has attended to two clocks for us over the last 18 months.

Firstly, an early 20th century ship radio room clock. This has been problematic ever since I acquired it. Keith diagnosed the problem and restored the clock to what I would term 'proper running order' for the first time. It now runs to within 30 seconds per week and is wound every 7 days (whether she needs it or not) Delighted!

Secondly, a much more recent Westminster chime mantle clock. Again, on return it runs better than it has since we have owned it (approx 20 years) This item developed a fault (not related to his service) shortly after having collected it from Keith. I was particularly impressed with the accuracy of diagnosis, and the speed and cost of rectification.

Overall, I have used a number of clock repairs/service providers over the years, and in my view the standards to which Keith works are unmatched by any alternative I have found - highly recommended!

I would just like to say how grateful and delighted I was by the work done by Keith at Clock Corner on 3 very old and non-functioning clocks, I inherited from my parents.

They now all keep good time, and the pleasure I get from hearing them ticking and and chiming on the hour, is immense. The grandfather clock had a broken intricate brass hour hand, and it was skilfully welded together - an invisible repair. The clock had been written off by previous 'experts' in clock restoration - but Keith managed to bring it back to life. It now keeps perfect time - the chimes even sound in unison with the pips on the radio! 

One of the other two clocks was a rarity that Keith had never encountered before, but yet again he rose to the challenge and has got it working again. This did take some time, but was worth the wait.

I would have no hesitation in recommending that Keith at Clock Corner can be trusted to bring your treasured clock heirloom back to life. He has a lifetime of experience and is an obvious clock enthusiast. We are very fortunate to have this expertise in the area - people will travel from far and wide to find such a service. I also appreciated the advice on winding and maintenance he gave when returning the clocks to my home.

The ONLY issue is that you cannot expect your repairs to be done in a hurry. He has a backlog of work, and this is testament to how difficult it is to find a clock repairer with his skill. From the start, the need for you to be patient is made very clear, but I have waited 20 years to get these clocks working, so a further 6-8 week wait was well worth it!

Many thanks Keith, not only do I appreciate your work - but my sons will too - when the clocks pass, in working order, to the next generation..

I have used Clock Corner on numerous occasions and I have always received excellent service. I would certainly use them again

To Mr Smith and everyone at Clock Corner.... The work you did for me on the very old ladies pocket watch is amazing, and I am so grateful to you all. With the very best of good wishes from Lynda.

Thank you for the clock, so expertly done. It is lovely to have it in place again in working order.

Malcolm - Farnham

 

Dear Keith and family, Simon and I cannot thank you enough for the excellent service we have received at Clock Corner which has exceeded expectations. Our granddaughter clock was passed down by Simon’s parents and a wedding gift to his mother’s great aunt. The clock was damaged and had not been functional in over 30 years. We did not expect it to be possible to be fully restored, in fact it keeps perfect time! Our only request was that it was ‘ticking over’ The clock means a great deal to us even though it is the ‘Woolworths’ of its time. It now has pride of place in our home. We are in awe of your expertise

Linda - Warrington

 

Thank you for the clock so expertly done. It is lovely to have it in place again in working order. Many thanks and kind regards….

Dear all, Thank you so much for your efforts to repair ‘Albert’. Not only does he only require rewinding when the full cycle has elapsed, but the strike sounds so much sweeter too. So very well done and many thanks…
