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.
