Dorian Clair has been repairing and overhauling clocks for over 50 years. He is an absolute expert in all styles of antique clocks. I have watched him make seemingly impossible parts from raw stock with relative ease. His mechanical expertise and experience puts him in one of the top 1% of all clock people in the country.
When you visit this shop, you will see that it has every conceivable type of lathe, spring winder, gear cutter, milling machine, drill, and other machinery to build any part needed for any clock or watch. What can't be purchased, he made what was needed. This is where other clock people come to get things done that they can't do, such as replace broken teeth in a wheel, or spring barrel.
The guy's a genius with machinery, and can recall from memory just about any type of escapement mechanism, complex watch movements, strike mechanisms, etc.
Highly recommended.
Bring cash. Be prepared to wait at least a month, and don't rush him. You can't rush an artist. It just irritates him.

When my mothers old house clock broke down, I took it to these guys for repair and they did a very good job. The person there asked me to leave it and called back 2 hours later to explain what needed to be done and how much it will cost and how long it will take and did a pretty good job.Its still working.

PROS: Great professional people
CONS:
