Collecting, repairing, restoring antique and vintage clocks and a little horological history

I live just outside Truro, Nova Scotia. My hobbies are clock collecting and repair, photography, furniture refinishing and light carpentry. This blog focuses on my interest in horology which simply put, is the science and art of time. The blog allows me to combine my hobbies of clock repair/collecting, photography and traveling. Except where otherwise credited, all photos are mine. All are reduced in size to protect my copyright.

Horology (clock collecting) allows me to meet many fascinating people as I travel across Canada and search for clocks to add to my growing and diverse collection. My wife and I combine our clock hunting forays with sightseeing and photography including some overnight stays, turning all our little trips into fascinating adventures meeting intriguing people and their unique stories.

    1. Hi Richard and thanks for visiting my site. It looks like a very nice Muller clock and I am sure that it’s new owner will appreciate the time and effort you have put into the restoration. If you are looking for a price valuation of the clock may I suggest NAWCC where you can discuss everything about clocks though I am sure that you would have a similar organization in the UK.

  1. Just by coincidence here I’m in you Blog.
    As any engineer I like mechanic clocks but I’m not a clock’s collector.
    Born in a small Portuguese city I was clock reparateur apprentice during two scholarships periods as a punitive action for the bad results.
    After that a graduation on electronics and forty years with Philips International on a very interesting carrier who took me to the most exquisite countries.
    Now at 77 yo and on pension I got a plastic box whit what was a Hermle 540-020.
    Have been 2 months of intense work but the PM motor already works after a modification and a new brush setup.
    So I’m doing clock re-engineering on electronics fashion as among’s hundreds of citations in Internet referring Hermle I could not get information about this fine piece of horology .
    After this sermon you know I was visiting your blog.
    For you and family have a Happy New Year

      Thanks for coming to my blog. I am not a collector of electric clocks but I found two items on the Hermle 540-020 battery driven 1.5 volt(normal torch battery) clock that might be of interest to you.
