Our museum's Conservator, noted antique clock restorer R. J. Renaud, sympathetically restores fine antique clocks for private customers in his uniquely equipped period workshop in the museum.
A member clockmaker of the British Watch & Clockmakers Guild, Mr. Renaud accepts private commissions for the conservative restoration of fine English longcase clocks, dial clocks, and bracket clocks. He employs only traditional methods and materials. Methodical and time consuming by nature, the horological restoration work embodies the careful attention to detail rare today through adherence to virtually unchanged ways unique to the craft.
He offers personal attention, including a visit to your home to assess your clock and provide a written estimate. Within reasonable distances, all clocks can be delivered and set up personally by the clockmaker.
At this time (January 2015) Mr. Renaud advises that, because of other commitments, he will not be taking new customers until mid 2015.
If you have any clock questions, please contact Allan Symons, the museum's Manager, by telephone at 613-584-9687 (leave a message after hours) or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE NOTE: The museum on occasion and on request will suggest a clockmaker or watchmaker living in your area who could work on your clock or watch. These are people who have a good reputation for customer service at that time.
However, clocks and watches given to these people are done so at the risk of the owners. Neither Mr. Renaud nor the museum can be held responsible for any problems encountered. In fact, we would appreciate hearing from you if you do have any concerns, so that we can update our listings. Thank you.
