I can answer MOST questions pertaining to clock problems and repair. I cannot answer any questions pertaining to watches, or of that matter. If you would like your clock appraised, I will do the best I can to tell you its current worth, and as for aging, I will be MORE than willing to help you, but please, have photos of your clock to send; it doesnt matter how good of a description you give me, I still need to see a photo of the clock. I also do not have the knowledge of the cosmetic care of clocks. Most clocks are made of wood, but if you need to know an answer about the care of the wood casing of your clock, you may look up other experts on this site, that have the expertise in wood care, and they will be able to help you.
I have been fixing, and collecting clocks for 10 years. I specialize in the repair of cuckoo clocks, 31 Day clocks (both American AND Foreign) 400 Day aka Anniversary Clocks, Most 8-Day clocks, and Most Mechanically driven clocks with a chime (Keywound, or weight powered).
