Our kit is straightforward to fit however, some customers prefer not to undertake this task themselves. In this case we are able to provide a clock overhaul service.
What's Included? Send us your clock and we will carry out a complete overhaul. The movement is first disassembled, cleaned and oiled. The troublesome contacts are removed and replaced with our unique circuit board and the clock is then reassembled and tested. We calibrate the clock using our electronic calibrator and then run the clock on test for several days to check that it is functioning correctly. Please see here for a list of which clocks are suitable for overhaul. The overhaul does not include restoration of the case, dial or bezel. We do normally clean the case to improve the appearance of the clock but this will depend on its condition when we receive it.
Charges Our charges for the overhaul service are as follows:
- Clock Overhaul £189 + Postage (Click here to see UK and international postage charges)
For the majority of clocks the standard charge covers all that is required to return the clock to full working order, however, in some cases other parts may be worn or broken. In this case we will contact you to discuss how you wish to proceed before incurring additional charges; If you decide that you do not wish to continue then we will return the clock without charge.
LOCATED OUTSIDE THE UK?
Please click here to see information on customs and VAT charges. If you would prefer not to send your clock to the UK we have a number of International fitting partners who can carry out the work for you - click here for details.
Turnaround Time We allow 10 working days for an overhaul which includes time for running the clock on test. At busy times there may be a backlog of clocks to complete and we may not be able to start on your clock straight away. If timing is important to you please contact us and we will confirm a start date.
Bezels Some clocks have bezels which are very difficult to remove. We take great care over this and it is rare that we have problem, however, sometimes the retaining tabs do break (particularly if the bezel has been removed previously). In this case we either repair the bezel by soldering or bonding a new tab inside the bezel. Both methods provide a neat repair and are not visible from the front of the clock. If we receive a clock with tabs which are already cracked or broken then this may incur an additional charge in which case we will contact you to discuss this. Volvo P1800 clocks are a special case and there is a risk of cracking at the back edge of the bezel when it is removed - fortunately this is not visible when the clock is installed in the car (see our video on this here).
