Once you have selected the clock you wish to purchase, you can secure it by placing a 20% deposit.

The work carried out on your clock will be guaranteed for 3 years, providing you with further peace of mind.
After the clock has undergone a full restoration and the testing period has been successfully completed, we will contact you to arrange a suitable date for delivery.
