I contacted Gordon having found his site on the internet. i was making an inquiry with regard to an old Smiths clock that i had inherited which wasn't currently working. Rather than advise me to bring the clock in he asked me many questions then led me through a number processes to see if, through his guidance , there some actions that i could take to rectify the problem. he spent about ten minutes on the phone to me and by the end i had the clock ticking. though it still needed some fine tuning i was left with some instructions that I could keep working on including some guidance on some cleaning that i could undertake.. i really appreciate his help which was free but foremost his openness and honesty. he was so helpful

From the first contact absolutely superb, clock had not worked for years, it had many anomalies . Gordon kept me fully informed and updated with progress, really interesting, clock is now how I remember it when it was my Grandfathers, Gordon will be 1st and only contact for future servicing. I can not speak highly enough of the service and end result.

Longcase clock: I am very pleased with the repair carried out by Horologica on my longcase clock. It is a pleasure to hearing it ticking and striking again. Gordon was helpful and efficient. He took a lot of trouble examining the clock and gave expert and knowledgeable advice. Thank you Horologica.

Gordon repaired a wall clock for me which over 100 years old and did an excellent job. So much so I immediatley gave him a smaller alarm/cigarette musical clock to clean. He is very professional and charged a fair price for the work undertaken. Very happy.

He has become very intense and with a lot of knowledge in the test and the refill busy. compared to his colleagues in the us. I'm very grateful for his quick support. I can only recommend

I live in Victoria, Australia and recently inherited an Art Deco grandfather tall case clock. After it was moved, the chimes sounded wrong.
I researched all over the web, but no one touched on the aspect of chime tone, until I enquired to Horologica. Gordon's response was amazingly quick (less than 24 hours) and was practical and down to earth allowing me to understand what I could (and should not) do to fix the matter. A further question and again a quick response and I'm set to get onto the fix.
Thank you, Gordon for selflessly answering an enquiry from across the planet.

Had a wonderful response from Gordon with a repair on a Hermle movement. Not only did he repair
the original movement but he supplied me with a new unit. Had some wonderful conversations with Gordon regarding the repair and installation, but his service is absolutely first class and at a sensible price.

I would like to add to the positive feedback for Gordon. I collected my repaired Hermle Astrolabium clock within the given time scale. This was not an easy clock to repair and one that other clock repairers wouldn't consider as it has a quartz movement. Very satisfied.

What a legend Gordon is ! He was really helpful & patient in explaining why our relatively new (we've had it around 12 years from buying it in Salzburg) cuckoo clock wasn't always playing the music that accompanies the half hour & hour cuckoo noise and some simple suggestions for trying to fix it ourselves before we launch into the expense and time of sending it off with the hope that it will be fixed, only to find that we could end spending almost as much on that as we did in buying the clock in the first place. Thank you so much for your help Gordon, we won't hesitate to come back to you if we are unable to sort the clock out with the easy fixes you have suggested, even though we are quite distant over in Sussex. Cheers, Mike

I had a clock that needed repairing which had great sentimental value. I searched the web for local clock repairers and came across Gordon at Horologica. I read through the reviews on his website for which my first impressions were that Gordon was not only very passionate about clocks, but was came highly recommended. So I took the clock to Horologica and explained the issues. Within a day or two, Gordon replied by phone and an mail detailing the issues with the movement, which either needed repairing, or replacing. I was given three options for which Gordon provided in great detail what was required and three different prices and his recommendation, which was not the dearest option. We took his advice and had the movement replaced and received the clock back within 10 days. I highly recommend Gordon if you need your clock repaired, or maintained as the service he provided was not only first class, but something customers don't experience very often.

I would like to thank Gordon for his help and advice. I sent him pictures of the outside and inside of my clock and he quickly diagnosed why it was not working and rang me to explain how I could rectify the problem. This worked and saved me the time and cost of taking the clock into his workshop. He did not charge me for the advice, but I would certainly use HOROLOGICA if I need the clock repaired or cleaned. I would highly recommend Gordon if you have problems with a timepiece. I am sure you will also get both a friendly and professional service.

I have so much to thank Gordon for and his love of clocks. I inherited my mantel clock from my father and so it has great sentimental value. When it stopped working, a local clock repairer, after having it in his work shop for a week or so, told me that there was nothing he could do.
It was by chance I was discussing the problem I had with my father?s clock when a friend suggested I contact Horologica. Gordon has a great passion for clocks and couldn?t have been more helpful. He took time to explain what he would do, kept me updated with regular emails and, most important, got the clock going again.
I can?t recommend Gordon enough.

The repair to my french chiming carraige clock was carried out promptly and the service was excellent. What was particularly helpful was the diagnosis of the work needed on the clock with full explanations and each each element of the work needed was separately quoted by email and I was able to give immediate instructions. I can highly recommend Horologica

I contacted Horologica for some advice about repairing broken glass on my clock face. Horologica offered to conduct the repair at a very reasonable price. The glass was returned but sadly had broken in transit and so I contacted Horolgica to advise and was absolutely amazed when the reply came back saying they would repair the item again at no further charge. This is a great company, the responses are very quick during email contact and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend this business.
