PROJECTS PAST & PRESENT
Below are a small selection of the various projects I have undertaken & the stories which surrounds them.
REPLICA HARRISON CLOCK
This is a handmade replica of the exceptionally accurate and beautiful clock that John and James Harrison completed in 1726. With all the features of the original clocks, this replica is authentic in design and construction.
DANIEL DELANDER BAROMETER
Notable clockmaker Daniel Delander's original barometer was the only one of this design and it is sadly now lost. This replica is a commission for a client but an additional one is available to order.
This is a replica of the escapement within a Harrison Clock, originally designed to eliminate friction from the mechanism so that no lubrication was required.
Time Traveller Clocks is engaged in a unique horology community and is often asked to speak, engage and attend clock related events. Here is a summary of some of the events the team has recently attended.
