Let me convert your old mechanical clocks to a modern, quiet, quartz movement (AA battery). Whenever possible I will retain the original dial, hands, glass and bezel.

When a mechanical clockwork clock breaks the cost of repairing it with a specialist watch repairer often outweighs the value of the clock. Converting the broken mechanism with a modern quartz movement gives your broken clock another life. As much of the original clock is retained as possible, what you send me will be returned as received with the addition of the battery powered movement.

I love a traditional mechanical clockwork clocks, but sometimes, especially in a bedroom, the TICK, TOCK, TICK can be a bit of a nuisance. Converting to a modern, quiet, quartz movement is a great way of upcycling any vintage clock.


The entry price of £35 includes a good quality, UNBRANDED quartz movement. This standard model is a 1 second STEP movement with a second by second tick, tick, tick. The customer can optionally UPGRADE to a Seiko movement at an extra cost of £8.00. The Seiko movement has two options, a standard STEP movement (1 second tick, tick, tick) or a "silent" SWEEP movement, great for bedrooms or rooms where silence is golden. In all cases of STEP movement, the tick is very quiet.


Purchase the item as sold here.
Choose between the 3 different movement styles - if in doubt, contact me.
Send the clock to me - I will provide my delivery details by message. I recommend a service like Royal Mail First Class Signed For (should be about £6-£10)
I will return the clock to you with the new QUARTZ movement fitted in less than 14 working days.

I can’t recommend this seller highly enough! He took so much time & effort to finding a way to convert my Smiths Alarm Clock. Needless to say we are very pleased with the finished product which has pride of place on the office bookcase.

I had my old wall clock converted. The service the seller provides is really professional: I had all the information I needed beforehand, and the seller is very committed to great service. Transaction was smooth and very quick. I highly recommend this shop.

This clock looks amazing on my mantel piece. It’s really high quality and exactly what I was expecting from the picture.
