Are you interested in getting your Chelsea Clock or some other antique clock restored? Do you prefer a walkthrough of the exact process so you can know what to expect from start to finish? Learn everything you need to know about clock restoration and repair when you work with our master craft experts here at Chelsea Clock:
Step #1: Get a Free Repair and Restoration Estimate
The first step of the restoration process is going to help you determine whether you want your clock restored or not. Our experienced clockmakers are experts in restoring Chelsea clocks and can restore many other brands, a list of which is available here. Before we promise any restoration work, however, we want to give you an estimate of the time and payment required.
There are two ways to get a restoration estimate for your clock. First, you can fill out our contact form and attach pictures of your clock for a general estimate. If you are interested, you can also send your timepiece in for examination by our clockmakers along with a repair request form. By doing so, we can provide a free, no-obligation estimate of what it will take to restore your chronometer. Step #2: Wait as We Perform a Full-Service Repair and Restoration
Once you have agreed to the estimate and the services suggested, our expert clockmakers will get to work performing a full-service repair and restoration. We believe in doing everything we can to clean up and retain the original parts and only replacing components that cannot be salvaged or are impacting clock performance.
A few general services you can expect during clock repair and restoration include:
- Repairs for timekeeping issues
- Routine clock maintenance
- Cleaning, oiling and regulating
- Polishing and refitting the casing
- Personalization if requested
The average repair job can take 12 to 16 weeks, with time adjusted depending on how many or few repairs are needed to complete the clock restoration.
Step #3: Enjoy Tour Clock and a Two-Year Full-Service Warranty
Once we've completed our work, we'll pack your timepiece in a secure package and send it back to you. Because the unexpected can happen in daily life, we offer a two-year full-service warranty for all clocks that we work on.
With our warranty promise, we give our guarantee that we will do our best to restore your beloved timepiece and do everything we can to make it last for years to come. So, whether you own an official Chelsea Clock or another vintage or antique timepiece, we hope you'll trust us to perform the restorations it needs to make it shine like the day it was made.
