Welcome to PD Currell Clock Repairs and Restoration.
I started in Horology over 14 years ago and in December 2012 turned the hobby into a business. I have a fully furnished workshop and am able to offer my services to the public and to the trade. I love to do the jobs that so-called “clockmakers” can’t do.
If you have a clock that needs repair, servicing or restoration you can contact me via the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact me by telephone on 07590 688549
If a clockmaker has ever told you in the past that your clock cannot be fixed then please bring it to me for a second opinion. You have nothing to lose and I am 99.9% certain it can be repaired, if it is because it needs a part or parts this is not a problem, even if there are parts missing. I have had a few clocks through the workshop that have been written off by other “clockmakers” and I am happy to say they are all working again.
When a customer brings a clock to me for repair or service it is given an initial inspection. Any restoration work on the case or dial is discussed with the client. The mechanism is then removed from the case and put on a test stand to check for any immediate problems and is then completely stripped down to its individual components and cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaning tank. Repairs are carried out to put the clock back to as near to new condition as possible. If any new parts or major repairs are needed the customer is informed and asked if it is OK to proceed with the work. Once all repairs have been completed the clock is again cleaned ultrasonically, assembled and then lubricated in the correct manner using quality clock oils and greases. The clock is tested over a period of two weeks to ensure it is running correctly, striking/chiming in the correct manner and is keeping good time.
I do my best to give an accurate estimate but, on occasion, certain problems or faults will not be discovered until the clock is disassembled. All estimates given are plus parts.
Any parts that have to be replaced are returned to the customer with their clock.
All of my work is covered by a 12 month guarantee (as well as any parts) as long as the clock has been serviced by myself. There are no hidden costs and you will pay no more than has been agreed.
House calls can be arranged but I do charge £35 for this service (within a 10 mile radius). If you are unable to transport your clock to me then please contact me and I will be happy to sort something out for you.
Please note I no longer accept clocks through the post.
I cover the whole of North Somerset and something can always be arranged if you have difficulty getting your clock to me.
If you have an old clock you no longer want for whatever reason please don’t put it into landfill. I am quite happy to collect any unwanted clocks which I can either restore if they warrant the time and expense or at least use them for parts. Any quartz clocks received I will pass on to a local charity shop.
If you have a clock, watch or related tools you wish to sell you can by all means contact me, even if it is not something I myself would be interested in buying I should be able to give you an idea of value. The easiest way to do this it to drop me an e-mail – email@example.com
Try to get a few clear pictures as this always helps.
