1830 Gold Pocket Watch

Here is a short video of an 1830 gold pocket watch after it had received the Overton clock treatment!

in other news, we won a national contract with a very well known high street jeweller. Went to the brilliant Chesterfield Retail Awards as a finalist.


Also, continued growth means we can offer a chance for a clockmaking apprentice! The successful candidate will undertake a level 3 – 5 diploma in Horology. Organised by the BHI and finally have a chance of completing a Horology degree at Birmingham University!

1820s Ships Chronometer

Something really special this week, This is very early and very rare eight day marine Chronometer dating from around c1820.. It is believed that this Chronometer was one used in the sea trials used to win the longitude prize.. John Harrison finally won the prize in the mid 1800s.. This clock was in a really dirty state with a broken Detent on the detent escapement. We manufactured a new one. Along with a handmade bush on the centre arbor made from old brass to match the colour. It’s work like this that really makes this adventure worth it pictures of before and after…
