R. McMahon Watchmakers - Adelaide vintage watch shop and watchmakers.
Due to a large workload we now only take on small antique carriage clocks and ship chronometers, a repair time of 9 to 12 months is the average. For more info contact info@rmcmahon.com.au .At Adelaide Vintage Watch Restorations we professionally restore and repair antique clocks. Full overhauls and service. Case restoration. Carriage clock and mantle clock specialist. French clocks and antique English clocks expertly cleaned, re-bushed and polished. Hand made balance staffs and wheels cut and fitted. We use traditional English and French methods. We do not as others in Adelaide use cheap Bergeon bushing. We use hand made bushes from hard bushing wire. Many antique clocks are badly repaired by "I'll have a go types". We replace mainsprings using mainspring winders and don't cut costs by using cheap oils. We use Swiss Mobeus synthetic oil where possible, and highest quality grease. Our cleaning technology eliminates the use of highly amoniated cleaning and is less harmfull for antique clocks. We use a combination of two part high grade marine laquer on French carriage clocks and marine chronometers, a quality clear spray is only used on parts not able to be hand laquered for brass protection against dis-colouring. We love clocks at Adelaide Vintage Watch Restorations, if you have been told your clock is not repairable, try us for a no obligation quote. Check first if your clockmaker has a been certified as a clockmaker by the Watch and Clockmakers of Australia (WCA). By appointment only at a time that suits you.
