Antique clocks are special for many reasons. Each vintage piece has a truly unique history behind it, from the hands that first made the clock to the many hands they've passed through over the generations. There aren't many objects that deserve to be called heirlooms, but antique clocks are certainly deserving of the title.
Unfortunately, time affects all things, including vintage clocks. Even the best made clock in the world will wear down with use, and while you can take steps to preserve your antique clock, you will need to get it repaired eventually. Fortunately, our clockmakers here at Chelsea Clock are experts at repairing and restoring clocks, including traditional pieces.
Want to know why we're considered experts in the field of antique clock repair? Here are three reasons why you can trust us to restore your vintage clock:
Reason #1: Restoring While Preserving
Antique clocks are prized because of the many parts and frameworks that continue to keep track of the time even after decades of use. At Chelsea Clock, we believe the best approach to antique clock restoration is to preserve as much of the original clock as possible while restoring function to your precious timepiece.
Sometimes, parts will have to be replaced. Even so, we do our very best to replace old parts that no longer work with close approximations. That way, you can preserve the stately look of your vintage clock and continue to enjoy how it keeps track of time. Reason #2: A History of Clockmaking
Chelsea Clock is a great antique clock repair company because we make antique clocks. Founded in 1897, we have been one of the premier clock brands in the United States and have since grown to become one of the elite timepiece makers worldwide. Presidents, business leaders and those who have served in the military have enjoyed our clocks as gifts, mantelpieces and even as chronometers that tell the time on naval ships and aircraft.
We've kept records of all of the handcrafted clocks we've made over the years, allowing our team of clockmakers to call upon decades of notes and experience to repair antique clocks.
