Clock Repairs in Wales
clients' frequently asked questions
There is no definite answer to this question. This depends on weather your antique clock has been looked after and cared for in previous years. If your clock has been well cared for previously with regular lubrication undertaken and serviced at appropriate intervals and has now stopped then your clock more than likely only needs a slight adjustment or minor repair. If your clock has been running for years without lubrication or servicing then the chances are it is going to need a full strip, clean and service then we can talk you through about looking after the clock going forward.
Here at antique clock repairs & restoration offer a number of different affordable repair and servicing options with bronze, silver and gold packages to suit all kind of clocks which may be in various states of repair. We will carefully inspect the clock and will inform our clients of what we think would be the best option with full clarity upfront and cost discussed and agreed so you will not have any unexpected costs added. You will know exactly what you are paying before hand.
The simple answer is a clock cannot really be overwound. This is a very common misconception with our clients. The only way a clock can be overwound is if you forcefully wind the clock after full wind so that the mainspring actually breaks. The clock should still work on full wind and if the clock does not work then the problem is probably something else stopping power getting to the escapement which could be clogged up old congealed oil and dirt, broken teeth to wheel, bent arbour or the most common reason excessive wear to pivots and bushes causing friction which is sorted by means of a service.
If your antique clock does not work or if it has stopped working please seek help from a professional. Please do not be tempted into trying to get it working by either messing with the internals, spraying wd40 or any other silicone spray into the mechanism or using 3 in 1 oil or any other oil as this will almost certainly cause more damage or problems than it already has. It may sort a problem out in the short term but guaranteed it will cause further long term damage and wear and the original problem will still exist. It could be something very simple and easy to sort so by seeking help from a professional then they can advise you and sort the issue.
Yes, you are more than welcome to bring the clock to our workshop however if this is not an option and you will struggle to get it to us we do offer a collection, delivery and setup service if you would prefer this option. This will be discussed with you upon enquiry.
