We have a highly skilled engineer, Steve, who has 41 years experience in the business behind him. Steve first gained his interest in clocks when he was 15 and followed in his family's footsteps as bell makers. After an apprenticeship at Gillett & Johnston, he furthered his engineering skills in a workshop making precision test equipment for industry. This helped him gain all the life skills he needed which are used in clock making.
