About Us

About Us

We live and work in a beautiful part of the country, close to the Jurassic Coast on the Somerset/Devon/Dorset border.
Our showroom is a medieval stone barn where we display our fully restored antique grandfather clocks. Whether your tastes are for a classic London longcase clock or a simple 30 hour cottage clock - we love them all, and we hope you do too.
We are open 7 days a week by prior appointment. If you are unable to view a clock in person we are happy to supply quality digital images with objective condition reports.
Over the years we have exhibited at many of the top antiques fairs including the British Antiques Dealers Association Fair, Northern Antiques Fair, Harrogate Antiques Fair, LAPADA Fair and Antiques for Everyone at the NEC, amongst others. David has also served on the vetting committees and is well respected as much for his knowledge as his objective fairness when chairing vetting appeals.
In addition to appearing as an expert on both popular BBC TV series "The Antiques Roadshow" and "Going for a Song", David has also authored a number of published articles - a selection of which you will find here.

Buying From Us

We sell our grandfather clocks via our website - from our showroom in Devon by prior appointment or by visiting our current exhibition (see below).

Authenticity - We endeavour to find the finest longcase and grandfather clocks available, restore them correctly using the correct materials, tools and skilled workmanship. It is key to our reputation for integrity that the major components of our clocks started life together i.e. dial and movement in their original case.
Delivery - David Gibson will personally deliver and install your grandfather clock in mainland UK.
Pricing - We believe in clear pricing - no POAs and definitely no coded price bands!!
Payment - We prefer payment by bank-to-bank transfer to our UK bank or cheque drawn on a UK bank. All transactions in £ pounds sterling (GBP).
Shipping - The world is a smaller place these days and we ship regularly by air-freight to the United States, Australia, Europe and worldwide. Your clock will be packed in a custom made case and in most instances will be with you within 10 days - a door-to-door service. Email us for your personal quote.
Exhibition - To coincide with Honiton Antiques Week in Devon's centre for antiques, we have been privileged to exhibit a selection of our oak and country grandfather clocks alongside the oak and country antiques and interiors at Pilgrim Antiques. Due to popular demand this has become a more permanent fixture and David is available to meet prospective customers throughout the year. 

 (Pilgrim Antiques, 145 High Street, Honiton, EX14 1LJ).

 All our grandfather clocks have been sympathetically restored to the highest standards by our small team of specialist craftsmen and skilled artisans.
