About Us

Jot Rijks, born in the Netherlands, is the owner of Dutch Antiques and is a qualified clockmaker. Jot completed his four-year full time study at the Christiaan Huygens School in Rotterdam, the Netherlands in 1976. He worked at Garrad’s The Crown Jewellers in London, England, and also at Thomson Time Centre in Nashville, United States. Back in the Netherlands he started his own business in the repair and restoration of antiques clocks. In 1996 he began supplying the trade and attended most of the important clock fairs in Europe and the USA. In 2001 Jot and his family migrated to Perth, Western Australia, where in 2003 he moved into an existing clock shop at 220 Stirling Highway, Claremont, WA and joined the Watch and Clockmakers of Australia. In 2010 Jot moved into his own premises in Chelsea Village, Nedlands, WA where he is still located today.

In Nedlands the shop has a wide range of antique clocks and barometers for sale and Jot carries out his own repair and restoration work at his fully equipped workshop on clocks as well as barometers. The shop also has a wide range of antique and new scientific instruments for sale.

Over the years Jot has written several articles and booklets about his interest in Antiques clocks. As a result of his experience and connections Jot is able to locate the item you are looking for.

Also on show at the shop is the collection of More Than Antiques (MTA), an affiliate of Dutch Antiques, which specialises in small decorative items and antique country style furniture.
