The old Gosport workshop.




The Holtby family of Clockmakers have been serving both the Trade and public for over 35 years. Our team of craftsmen and women have been drawn from the best of their fields after years of careful selection.

The restoration work is carried out, at our Gosport workshop (Holtby Clock Restorations), under the supervision of Danae. We specialise in the servicing of fine Antique Clocks – Long Case (Grandfather) Clocks, Vienna Wall and dial Clocks, Bracket, Marble, Carriage Clocks & other fine English & Continental movements. All work is of a high standard & guaranteed. We are happy to advise & view clocks in the convenience of your home.

There is no call out charge  – collection & delivery is free with overhauls in the Solent area.

We offer an Excellent Dial restoration service – hand restored in the traditional way to their former glory without looking ‘new’. This service is recommended for any clock where details are disappearing from the dial, to preserve both history and value
