Antique and Vintage Clock Collecting & Repair

Collecting, repairing, restoring antique and vintage clocks and a little horological history

About Me

I live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. I am a former Criminal Justice educator in a local college.

I am a self-taught clock-maker and have been collecting and repairing clocks for the past 7 years. This blog focuses on collecting and repairing antique and vintage mechanical clocks by profiling clocks in my collection though I occasionally profile other people’s clocks. Other hobbies include photography, furniture refinishing and light carpentry.

Horology is the science and art of time. Those who study horology are horologists. Horologists focus on clocks, watches, or both. My focus is on mechanical clocks.

I am constantly searching for clocks to add to my growing and diverse collection of close to 100 clocks. My wife and I combine our clock hunting forays with sightseeing and photography which quite often translates into overnight stays, turning our little trips into fascinating adventures where we meet intriguing people and listen to their unique stories.

I have been a member of NAWCC (National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors) since 2012. Meet me on several Facebook clock pages.
