Dashboard Clocks Converted to Battery

Have you got an old Classic Car with a broken dashboard clock? If so, please send it to me and I’ll convert it to a modern QUARTZ movement while maintaining the patina and character of the clock. The photos below are just a few of the clocks removed from Classic Cars in a broken state – sent to me – and returned looking just like they did before – with the added convenience of a battery powered movement. My Car Clock Conversion Service starts at £90 – all the examples below where converted from electro-mechanical / clockwork movements to quartz for less than £100.

Keeping it Original

My aim when converting any dashboard clock is to maintain the external character and patina of the dashboard clock while, at the same time, adding accuracy and convenience. The quartz movements used to replace the old elecro-mechanical units are high quality, German made mechanisms. The objective is to return your clock looking, as far as possible, like it did when it arrived. But inside is a different story. It’s out with the broken clockwork or electro-mechanical movement and in with a modern, reliable one – powered by a single LR1 battery.
