Quotations and Service for your treasured timepiece:

GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen and their collaborative horologists ensure both the case and the works are maintained, repaired, restored or conserved to exacting standards. Clock case – GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen provide free estimates for case restoration from photos, or following workshop inspection.

We remove the works for the horologist, so they can repair them whilst we attend to the clock case. You are invited to inspect the case upon completion. Then the clock case is provided to the horologist, and you will pick up the entire clock direct from the horologist.

Clockworks – Our highly qualified and experienced horologist colleagues attend to the clockworks. We can advise you of the most appropriate horologist for your clock and location.

Typically, the clockworks service, repair or restoration quote will be provided by the horologist after workshop inspection.

  • All clocks are prone to wear and occasional damage. They may get in such a state that they no longer are able to run freely. Most quotes are free. Accidents and disasters can happen too, so insurance quotations are also possible.
  • Years of use may result in the accumulation of grime, dust and dried oil. These are all painstakingly removed, freeing up mechanisms once again.
  • Broken or worn parts are repaired and missing and weakened parts (eg springs) are replaced. For valuable antique clocks, parts are repaired rather than replaced with reproduction parts. For parts no longer available, they can be micro-engineered.
  • Pendulums, weights, numbers, chains, cat gut, bevelled glass, glass door transfers, ormolu mounts, dials (paper, enamel, porcelain) and hands can be repaired or replaced.
  • All clocks are tested and timed following repairs to ensure accurate timekeeping, striking and chiming.
  • Advice is provided regarding correct setup, maintenance, running and ongoing servicing for antique longcase clocks (or grandfather clocks), wall clocks, bracket clocks, carriage clocks, French mantle clocks, and of course, regulators.

Famous History of Royalty Clock

Elvin Harvey, of Harvey Bros, Woolloongabba, son of internationally renowned furniture maker, woodcarver and sculptor, LJ Harvey, was commissioned by the Queensland Government to make an ornately carved longcase clock as a gift for the 1981 wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. Gary Olsson was honoured to be a fully qualified cabinet maker working on the team, which had Elvin, Gary’s teacher, as a designer and principal master carver. Unlike a multitude of royal gifts, we understand that the clock has been retained – an honour to Queensland.
