Does anyone have details of anyone who can repair clocks. I have a pendulum wall-mounted clock that needs looking at. I prefer to go by recommendation as the clock is precious and I want someone reliable.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks
Anita

Upon recommendation, I took a similar clock to the the guy who has a shop in the square, close to the Parilla (Albox). An open frame clock, it simply required cleaning after 15 odd years of faultless working.

It took quite a while before it was ready. When I finally got it back, the dial plate was loose and the strike no longer worked. After a couple of months it stopped altogether and has never worked since.

I'm not sure where you should take your clock, but I can certainly tell you where not to take it. If you find a good watchmaker, please let me know.

okay Graham will let you know icon_smile.gif
I have got the clock working at the moment but it is going slow - it's a case of keep trying adjustments on the pendulum, I'll be happy if I can get it to only be 5 mins slow per day - I can live with that. The clock was bought for our wedding present from family in Belgium, the clock was bought in Holland in 1974, I certainly want to make sure it is looked at by someone reputable.

Sorry your repair didn't work out well and I hope we find someone - preferably a retired clockmaker who still likes to mess about with clocks icon_biggrin.gif

Anita
