The Business

First established in 1968 by my father Reginald Sykes C.M.B.H.I. who having previously worked for the Services Watch Company in Leicester. For 40 years rising from apprentice to Technical Director.
I joined the business on a full-time basis in 1978, after having completed a 2 year Full-time course in Horology and passing the British Horological Institute Examination at Graduate Level (Grad. B.H.I.)
It was here that I developed my interest in clock repair and restoration, particularly antiques.

In 2008 I obtained Member Status of the British Horological Institute (Member BHI)
My wife Caroline joined me in the business in 1990. Having worked in the textile industry as a designer and has now turned her 'artistic-flair' to jewellery design and commissions. As well as running the busy retail side of the business.
We aim to give you a personal and friendly service.
