Clocks use a complex & reliable movement that is designed to run for many generations with the appropriate maintenance  

      You would'nt drive a car with no oil or dirty oil because you know it will grind to a hault & create more costly damage to the engine.....clock movements are no different!   

Clock oil starts breaking down between 12 - 24 months. Old oil with dirt deposits in it is an abrasive material & will wear down the soft brass parts destroying your clock movement.  

CLOCKS SHOULD BE SERVICED AT LEAST EVERY 2 YEARS to avoid this! 


We use a 7 step service/maintenance plan:
  1. Remove the clock movement from it's case.
  2. Clean the movement by removing the old dirty oil.
  3. Inspect the gears, pivots, & bushings for wear. A strong indicator that a clock movement needs an overhaul, instead of just a basic service, is when the bushings show extensive wear allowing the gears to turn in an irregular motion.  
  4. Re-oil the movement.
  5. Re-install the cleaned movement into it's case.
  6. Adjust & calibrate the clock movement.
  7. Test the accuracy of the time keeping.

Having your clocks oiled and serviced regularly helps make certain it will last for future generations.
