8-31-23: Sadly, we must announce that we must temporarily slow down accepting new projects to the waitlist. If you are already on the waitlist, we will do the best we can to honor your position. If you are new to us, we hope to open up new projects to our waitlist some time in early […]
We have hundreds of customers and we love taking care of each and every one of them. As a result we work incredibly long days, every day, for them, often doing things behind the scenes to maintain all of the services and products associated with this business that they will never see—like chasing down suppliers, […]
Please contact us if you wish to order a Model 1900-BL as an aesthetic companion to your Model 1900G or Model 1900R3. Due to logistics issues, they are no longer offered as a stand-alone product.
On May 6, 2006, we shipped our first No. 6 battery kit–the Model 1900–for self winding clocks. That was 17 years ago! Since then, our product line has expanded to include a remarkably unique No. 6 rechargeable Model 1900R series (and we are on our 3rd generation now), ultra capacitor-electronically regulated units (the Model 1900G […]
Ever have COVID? If you have, and it was a middle of the road case, maybe you know what it can do to you. You don’t care about inquiries, phone calls, emails, orders or anything else. You just want to stop the symptoms any way you can. That’s all you have energy for. I am […]
We are no longer providing our MS-1 on the e-commerce site. There were multiple strengths used in the original manufacture of SWCC movements, and multiple movement styles. Given the rarity of need to replace these springs, it doesn’t make sense to offer multiple versions on the e-commerce site. However, if you think you need a […]
We have made a decision to no longer carry cloth covered wire. There are several reasons for this. First, the wire is getting more challenging to obtain. Most of our historic suppliers have stopped carrying the size we use to build self winding clock pigtails. While other sizes are available, they don’t work with things […]
Urgos movements are often found in older, high-quality grandfather clocks such as Howard Miller, Ridgeway, and others. Although Urgos production stopped in the late 1990’s, many are still found in clocks manufactured before 2000, and are commonly found in clocks manufactured from the 1970’s to the 1990’s. Suppliers of similar movements claim that the movements […]
As of January 16, we are back answering emails, working in the shop, business as usual! Happy New Year!
Well, no machine will run indefinitely without maintenance. We generally ask customers to send their clocks this way every 3-4 years (after a full restoration) for maintenance oiling and inspection. Surprisingly few actually do. Folks seem surprised when the clock stops working after 10 years of neglect. Recently we had a customer send an […]
