Taking Vintage broken / unloved clocks and giving them a NEW LIFE

At Clocks Upcycled I do two things.

1) I sell my own upcycled clocks and 2) I give clients clocks a contemporary makeover.

1) Upcycled Clock Sales

Most the clocks I sell come from car boots, charity shops and online auctions - generally sold as SPARES or REPAIR. If the repair is just not economical, in most cases, I fit a modern, accurate quartz mechanism. I try to maintain as much as the original clock as possible including the HANDS. Sometimes the case gets a makeover - sometimes just a sympathetic polish. Many people like this fusion of the old and new technologies - preferring the convenience of a battery operated clock (no winding and better timekeeping),

2) Clock Makeovers and Clock Conversions to Battery

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. If requested, I will also give the clock a SYMPATHETIC clean and polish - maintaining the original patina and character.

I am a STUDENT at the British Horological Institute and have always had my hands inside clocks and watches. My aim is to make this a FULL TIME job - at present it's a hobby that pays for a few family treats and meals out.

If you have an old clock that you want CONVERTING to quartz or completely UPCYCLED please
