Vintage clocks recycled & converted to battery

All the upcycled clocks shown below are either currently for sale or have recently been sold on ETSY. All these clocks were originally manufactured in the 1950’s or 60’s – sometime even earlier. Each vintage clock has been given a unique makeover giving it a retro / contemporary style all of it’s own. Sometimes we manage to repair and regulate the original clockwork movement – other times we have to replace it with a modern quartz (AA battery) mechanism.

I have now started to accept clocks for conversion from CLOCKWORK movements to modern, quiet, quartz AA battery movements. This service is available now from my Etsy store. It’s a simple process, just send me the clock, I then remove the clockwork mechanism and replace it with a quartz movement. Whenever possible I retain all the original hands, glass, dial and bezel. I guarantee full communication throughout the entire process. Once completed, your converted battery powered clock is returned to you ready for years of hassle free timekeeping

This clock arrived like so many other from the 1950’s and 60’s. The mechanical movement was not working but thanfully repairable. The casing was chipped with peeling varnish. With a little bit of hard work this precise clock has had a full makeover. Two tone paint scheme (chosen by the customer), original hands, glass, bezel and chapter ring. The mechanical movement has been cleaned and regulated giving a more than reasonable +/- 2 mins per day.

An imposing mantel clock dating back to the 1920’s made in Germany by H.A.C. The clockwork movement in this clock was unfortunately beyond economical repair. I have applied a contemporary slate blue paint over whilst maintaining the marquetry detailing. The original glass and brass bezel look good with these new hands. The broken mechanical movement was exchanged for a modern AA battery quartz movement providing accurate, almost silent time keeping for many years to come. This upcycled clock is a statement piece and would look great in a dining room, lounge or hallway
