CLOCKS

Clock Repairs

 

 

 

Clocks have been in cars since the early days of motoring but unfortunately their quality was particularly poor during the 50's, 60's & 70's.

We repair a lot of clocks but be aware it takes time for this to occur.

We can change the polarity of clocks and in some cases such as American Borg Clocks we can change the movement to quartz.
