Antique Clocks Appriciate

Antique clocks are not just pieces of furniture or timepieces; they are a sound investment, a piece of history, a work of art, and a very old antique.

On the other hand, If you purchase a modern clock, the movement will fail in about thirty years. Modern movements just don't last as long as an antique movements.

If you purchased an antique clock five years ago, today it would be worth more than what you paid for it. Whereas, a modern clock would only be worth a fraction of its original price. With our volatile economy antique clocks may be a better investment than your 401k.

An antique clock is a wise investment because it appreciates over time. When it comes time to pass it onto future generations, your antique clock will be worth more then when you purchased it.

Clock Repair vs Overhaul

Basically, an overhaul focuses on the entire clock movement, whereas a repair focuses on a particular issue. Not all clocks are in need of an overhaul. In fact, most clocks require only a minor repair.

After inspecting your clock's movement, we will recommend the repairs needed and advise you if the movement would benefit from an overhaul. When we perform our 11-step overhaul, we completely disassemble the movement and perform a rigorous inspection.

A strong indicator that a movement needs an overhaul, instead of a minor clock repair, is when the oil sinks contain a black or green residue. The residue is a mixture of brass powder and old oil. When the residue is visible it is a sure sign your clock needs a rebushing.

We recommend a clock oiling be performed every two years. Having your antique clocks oiled regularly helps make certain it will last for future generations.
