Below are examples of  repair prices.  These are estimated  costs for the standard service on various types of clock.  The making of parts and restoration work is not covered in the service price but customers will be notified if significant  additional costs could be incurred.  Work can be sent and delivered by insured post or courier.  Goods in transit are at the sole risk of the owner. Home visits, collection and delivery of clocks and setting up can be arranged and a scale of charges will be provided on request.

Clocks and watches are dismantled and cleaned in ultrasonic cleaning tanks, parts are polished where appropriate and any necessary corrective work undertaken. The clock is then reassembled, adjusted and tested.  New parts can be made but every attempt is made to preserve the clock as near as possible to its original condition.

Penman Clockcare also offers a repair service for modern and antique watches and jewellery, as well as bespoke items of gold and silver design and jewellery making.
