Restoration of Movements and Dials
Malcolm Wild, A fellow of the British Horological Institute & his team of hightly skilled restorers carry out restoration work on all types of antique clocks, movements and dials. Where additional skills are required, such as Gilding, Enamel Dial restoration and cabinet work on cases, qualified specialists are used.
Typical 8 day long case movement before and after restoration.
The movement is stripped & cleaned all train holes checked & re-bushed if required, all pivots burnished. The escapement is checked & adjusted. New gut line is fitted & the movement is re-assembled, oiled & tested. Normally, after the work is completed it would be delivered & set up at the customers’ house / premises.
Additionally parts can be manufactured, such as calendar work as shown on in the photo below…
