Carriage Clocks and the British Antique Spirit

Carriage Clocks and the British Antique Spirit

Though they are not as prominently given as gifts the way they were in decades past, people will still recognize the small and simple design of a carriage clock when they see one. This concise simplicity and elegance truly is the spirit of British antiques that many collectors seek out. Customers in Boston still enjoy carriage clocks and purchase them at Village Watch Center.

"They serve a purpose and remind us of a different time..."

Carriage clocks were designed for transport at a time where portability was a bit more difficult. The clocks used a balance spring instead of the traditional pendulum to facilitate this mobility. Despite this relative durability, these clocks still require attention from a company such as Village Watch Center who understand carriage clock maintenance and carriage clock repair. We find that even though owners tend to display them more than actually transporting them anymore, there is now greater need for proper carriage clock cleaning. There is a lot to appreciate about these classic clocks. We enjoy fixing carriage clocks for customers so that they continue to last. They serve a purpose and remind us of a different time.

"There is a simplicity and elegance at work with these clocks..."

Though the spring works require attention, these clocks were built to withstand use and they stand up well along side other British antiques that were built to quality and to be timeless. There is a simplicity and elegance at work in these clocks. Village Watch Center of Boston has learned a lot about the timeless appeal of these clocks from selling carriage clocks and buying used carriage clocks.
