New life to old clocks
My aim is simple, to stop old unwanted clocks being thrown to the landfill. Upcycling perfectly good products can help the environment.
If possible, I repair the clock and keep the original mechanical movement. Any unused old parts are recycled or sold to other horologists
At present all my upcycled clocks can be found on my Etsy store and eBay. The clocks are CHEAPER on Etsy as they have lower fees.
Clocks normally available from approximately £69 to £150+. All prices include economy delivery to mainland UK
If you have an OLD CLOCK that would benefit from my attention, please get in touch. Commissions gratefully accepted – prices from around £75.
My aim is to use as much of the original clock as possible – anything unusable is recycled.
Clockwork to Quartz conversion service
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 using Royal Mail 1st Class SIGNED FOR service.
Napolean Hat clock makeover
This clock arrived like so many other from the 1950’s and 60’s. It was broken beyond economical repair and the casing was chipped with peeling varnish. A short time later and the clock has had a full makeover. Two tone paint scheme, new chapter ring and second hand. I managed to keep the original hour and minute hand, glass and chrome bezel

I have been interested in clocks since a young boy. Currently studying with the British Horological Institute – my aim is to REPAIR and UPCYCLE as many clocks as possible. Every clock saved from the landfill puts a smile on my face. Have a look at some recently upcycled clocks. Remember – you can send me an old broken clock for upcycling – from just £75.
