||Wendell Sharp is a
Certified Master Clockmaker on Cape Cod with over 30 years of experience
repairing antique, and modern clocks. He is a lifetime member of AWCI (American
Watch and Clockmakers Institute). House Calls are scheduled in the Cape Cod
area by appointment to service Grandfather and Atmos LeCoultre Clocks.
Grandfather Clocks are initially serviced with a house call. 5 to 20
year old clocks will require general cleaning and oiling. A specially designed
synthetic clock oil is used. Most clocks should be serviced every 3 to 5 years
to keep them in optimal condition.
If the bearings of the Grandfather
Clock are severely worn, it will require either a complete overhaul or in many
cases, a new replacement movement. The old movement is replaced, keeping the
original weights, pendulum, hands, and chime rods.
Atmos Clocks have
been made in Switzerland for over 60 years. They use a chamber (bellows) with a
gas that expands and contracts with temperature to actuate a complicated
winding system that winds the clock. They are the closest thing we have to
perpetual motion, but they do require service on rare occasions. Atmos clock
repair requires special tools and often are brought back to the workshop for
Cape Cod Clock Repair and Restoration services specializing in
grandfather clocks and Atmos LeCoultre Swiss Clocks.
