A leading indicator that your clock is in need of an overhaul, and not just a minor clock repair, is when the oil point contains black or green residue. This residue is a mixture of old oil and brass powder, which is a sure sign your clock needs re bushing. All clock movements we overhaul go through an 11-Step process to ensure all problems get addressed. After an overhaul, your clock will keep more accurate time, ensuring you only have to make minor time adjustments every wind cycle.

Clock movements overhauled by us are subjected to the following 11-Step process:

  1. Remove your clock's movement from the case.

  2. Inspect the movement for signs of wear.

  3. Document all problems and the overall condition of your clock.

  4. Fully disassemble the movement.

  5. Clean individual movement parts in an Ultrasonic cleaner using a specialized clock repair cleaning solution.

  6. Dress and diamond polish all pivots.

  7. Perform all clock repairs and rebushings.

  8. Individually test the gear trains.

  9. Assemble the movement, perform an oiling, and make all necessary adjustments.

  10. Run the movement for 48 hours, in a testing stand while being monitored by a computerized timing device, making the necessary timing adjustments as necessary.

  11. Mount the movement back in the case and run your fully assembled clock for one to two  weeks.
