I wanted my commission to be unusual and unlike anything built before. My three guiding principals for the clock were that it had to have scale (an imposing presence), movement (many things happening to catch the eye) and complexity. Of course it had to look beautiful incorporating all the basics of...

The Heritage Crafts Association has released its latest Red List of Endangered Crafts. Watch making and watch dial enamelling are critically endangered and clockmaking is endangered. We know how many people still need these skills to exist to create and repair their beautiful clocks and watches, and we're glad to preserve them with our on site and distance learning courses. http://ow.ly/s6Gw50ETDaG

Hi. I have my Grandmothers old music box but the spring is broken. If I sent a picture could you advise who might be able to repair it please?
Special virtual guided tour in English of the latest temporary exhibition "The Shape of Time" > June 28th at 6:30pm (UK time) - held by Lavinia Galli (exhibition curator), Cristiano Zanetti, and Lorenza Gay. Cost: an offer to the Museum with a minimum of 5 Euros Reservations: [email protected] The Shape of Time focuses on time and its relationship with humans from antiquity to the early Modern Age. It showcases about 30 items, including clocks, sculptures, illuminated manuscripts and paintings. Amongst the artists featured are: Tiziano, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Andrea Previtali, Bernardino Mei and Giovan Battista Gaulli known as il Baciccio. The core of the exhibition is a group of precious 17th century Italian night clocks which were invented by the Campani brothers for Pope Alexander VII Chigi and the faces of which were decorated with allegories of time by famous baroque painters. The exhibition is divided into four parts: The measure of time and space, The image of Time, Night time, and Magic shadows. The show explores the images and personifications of time, the technological developments in its measurement, and aims to encompass science, literature and the visual arts. * Singapore Clock & Watch Trade Association Australian Antiquarian Horological Society Watch and Clockmakers of Australia National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors, Inc.

Good day from South Africa. I am the new proud owner of a Jonas Barber Winster long case clock. The case is in a fairly good condition, but was hand painted with red (mahogany) varnish. I have stripped the varnish with acetone and I have lightly sanded the case with a 300 grid sanding paper. I initially thought the case was made out of Mahogany, but it actually looks like Walnut. The dial is in fairly good condition. Only the black paint of the Roman numerals and his name, came off partially. Can be restored. Now for the problem. The movement is also in a fairly good condition. The only problem is, it was stripped of it's strike components like the rack and it's levers. Does any one on this group perhaps have some spare parts available for the movement?? Case is approximately 2.5m tall.
