The Art and Craftsmanship for Making and Restoring Timepieces
Clock value, functionality, antiquity and longevity are maximised due to the synergistic collaboration and craftsmanship of horologist and GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen (clock case maker and repairer). The horologist will work on the clockwork, whilst GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen ready the case. Your case will then be delivered to the horologist so he can expertly fit and test the clockworks in the case prior to notifying you of the completion of the project. You gain from dealing directly with the horologist, with no middlemen or commissions involved. With pickup or delivery arranged by the horologist, you will gain first-hand knowledge and advice regarding the set-up, maintenance and running of the clock.
GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen offer a complete custom design service and do reproduction research. They are Approved Service Providers with AAADA, and private practice conservators listed with the AICCM for repair, restoration & conservation.
Private clients and collectors commission new clocks, and bring us their vintage, antique and heirloom clocks, for authentic, traditional repair, restoration and conservation of their valued and valuable timepieces. We are also able to provide parts and undertake micro-engineering tasks.
We can repair, restore or replace the wall brackets, plinths and glass domes, and even pocket watch stands.
Design and restoration of clocks are done in the traditionally correct, olde school manner.
GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen have expertise in all aspects of timber, veneer and inlay repair, porcelain, metal, marble and slate restoration and conservation, and can carve and turn missing features. Hinges and knobs can be repaired or replaced, and we retain a stock of authentic antique and vintage glass to replace broken panes. Traditional hand French polishing is usually recommended in pure shellac which has proven its worth over centuries. Gilding, hand-painted faux finishes and marbling can all be restored, and our jewellers, micro-engineers, engravers, gold & silversmiths can work absolute miracles on your treasured piece.

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.
