Assessing the Condition of Your Clock
The repair process typically focuses on identifying a malfunctioning gear or other part and restoring it to its proper function. In some cases that may include replacing the damaged part. An overhaul of your clock is sometimes called “clock movement restoration”, and while it is a form of repair it is several orders of magnitude above simply repairing or replacing a gear or two. When you bring your antique clock to the Empire Group we will assess which type of repair is required.
If your clock was previously running smoothly and then falls off the wall or is knocked over by accident and ceases to work it’s likely that something has come loose inside necessitating a simple repair. If, on the other hand, your clock ceases to work for no apparent reason or you notice the oil sinks are full of a greenish-black residue clock movement restoration may be called for.
