Many collectors of historic items will be aware of the meaning of clock conservation, which seems to have become a more popular term amongst clock collectors and museums. Clocks are often historic items and both the owner and the horologist has a duty of care to ensure that todays items are treated in a manner that allows future generations to enjoy the clocks produced by the craftsmen of the past.
Good quality clocks, if well cared for, often outlive several owners. With this in mind, all work undertaken by Channel Island Clocks aims to balance the needs of the owner with the most suitable ways of ensuring the long term future of the clock.
Ian will be pleased to discuss with the owner current attitudes towards the conservation of clocks. Clock conservation principles will also be considered when undertaking standard repair and restoration work if required. Please contact Ian for more information.
