Pieces-N-Time Antique Clocks is the continuation of a thirty-two-year fascination with clocks, beginning with my purchase of a ‘basket-case’ clock in the flea market in Seville Spain in late 1967. After the successful restoration of the case, which had five different, identifiable coats of paint hiding a beautiful rosewood veneer case and the repair of the movement, which involved the making of two parts which are still in that clock, the hobby took on a life of its own. In 1971 I was sponsored for membership in the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors by another clocksmith and I have been a member ever since.
During the following years, additional clocks, many considered lost causes by their former owners, were rescued from flea-markets, yard sales, and the back rooms of otherwise respectable antique shops throughout Spain and in many of the States where I have lived here in the good old USA.
As both my skills and my array of tools and parts expanded I was called upon by friends, neighbors, and colleagues to ‘have a look’ at the clocks that seemed to keep coming out of attics, basements, and barns. Many of them had not run in the owner's memory--they do now.
Having given up my day-job (retired) as a chemist turned program-manager after a bit more than thirty-two years of service, I am pleased to offer my services as a Clocksmith and as a dealer in antique clocks.
