Don't wait for a professional to show up at your house to fix your clock!


Even a broken clock is right twice a day, but most of us demand higher standards of performance than that. Because of the complex and precise nature of mechanical timepieces, clock repair can be difficult.


Unless you have a solid understanding of the mechanical principles involved, clock and watch repair can be intimidating. And that doesn’t start to scratch the surface of antique clock repair, where you may have a hard time even finding replacement parts!


Because few of us are clock experts, the clock Experts on JustAnswer are available to assist you with your clock repair questions, helping you make sense of the problem and find the best solution.


You can even ask follow-up questions, and approve payment only when you’re completely satisfied.

  • My emperor grandfather clock has been sitting up for 25+ years. The chains are not available for me to hook the weights. What can I do?
  • How do I remove the hands from a Hermele 2114? I have the unit removed from the clock but cannot get hands off.
  • I have a Sleigh clock wound so tight it has stopped running. I have shut the chime off and moved the minute hand 12 to 12. It starts to run but stops after a while. Any suggestions?
