• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Hi, Got giving this clock to sort out tonight, its French, has a makers mark, not one that i know, none runner, or was, its now working but needs a good clean, the crutch was bent every which way.I never know what to charge, being a novice, i do for a bit of pin money really, but it has still got to be stripped, put though the ultrasonic, pivot holes pegged out and put back together, Would £50 pounds be to much?

I don't know who made it but the mark looks engraved; where makers marks are normally stamped into the brass, so it might be a retailers mark, post production.

£50.00 plus parts is very good value for anyone having one of these serviced and cleaned I reckon BM. A business would be charging £150.00 plus.

£50 is very good value for a timepiece, pity you are in Chatham. Double that for a striker would still be very good.
