Clock Restoration & Repair Services
Americlock can restore your historical mechanical tower clock and clock components to the tower clock’s original factory condition. Notable restorations that we have completed include Seth Thomas Clocks, Howard Clocks, tower clocks, and three legged gravity escapement clocks. Restoration is usually needed when a clock has deteriorated due to time, wear or is no longer operational due to mechanical complications. Americlock offers over sixty years of experience in mechanical clocks restorations.
Our most celebrated project was the restoration of the oldest mechanical clock in the United States at St. Michael’s church in Charleston, South Carolina. This clock was ordered in 1765 and delivered to the church in 1768We specialize in the automatic rewinding of the weights, which eliminates the weekly manual winding of the clocks by a timekeeper.
Our automatic rewind system is unique because it is the only system that does not permanently alter the historical accuracy of the clock and it does not put unnecessary wear and tear on your mechanical clock. Our revolutionary pendulum correction system will automatically start and stop the pendulum to ensure accurate time keeping. Due to temperature changes mechanical clock mechanics expand and contract changing the accuracy of the time kept. Our system overcomes these factors with a non-intrusive approach.
With some clocks it’s often difficult to track down the original supplier when repair work is necessary. Americlock can determine what is needed and supply the solution to get your clock or bell systems running perfectly again.
