Introduction to Allan Smith's Antique Longcase Clocks,
Antique Bracket Clocks & Barometers
Antique clocks are my passion. I have been a collector and student of antiquarian horology for the past 30 years, and a dealer in fine well restored examples since October 1988.
My practical skills and understanding of the elements of clock movement restoration ensure that my stock is high on orginality. A thorough knowledge of regional characteristics and a study of styling of the periods involved helps me ensure sympathetic restoration of any clock which passes through my hands.
Many of my customers have become personal friends and have been good enough to recommend my quality, originality, and after sales service.
I have never charged for out of guarantee work since the inception of my business in 1988 as the thoroughness and quality of my restoration means that any slight remedial work is confined to minor adjustments only. My clocks are restored to last a lifetime as they often end up many miles from a competent, sympathetic restorer.
