Dutch Antiques offers antique clock repair and restoration from our Perth workshop. We have a qualified clockmaker who completes all work on barometers and clocks, so we don’t need to have trade workers do the job.
Our Qualified Clockmaker
Jot Rijks, our qualified clockmaker, does all barometer and clock repairs in Perth from our fully equipped workshop.
He attended a 4-year full-time study at the Christiaan Huygens School in Rotterdam, Netherlands in 1975. He gained further experience at Garrard’s Crown Jewellers in London and in the United States. He also had his own business back in the Netherlands.
In 2002, Jot and his family moved to Perth, where he started on Stirling High Way in Claremont. In 2013, he moved into his own premises in Nedlands, but remained on Stirling High Way.
Currently, he is a member of the Watch and Clockmakers of Australia (WCA), the Master Clock and Watch Makers of Western Australia (MCAW) and the Antiquarian Horology Society (AHS).
Our Perth Workshop
We assure you that trade workers do not repair your antique clocks or barometers because we complete all our repairs on our premises.
We hand craft missing parts to suit the age and style of your clock, utilising our clockmaker’s experience and our extensive library of books to maintain authenticity. We stock a range of parts and glass tubes for barometers and, if necessary, we can source hand blow glass tubes. We complete painted dial restoration and, finally, restore your cabinets with our cabinet makers.
At Dutch Antiques, here is what our clock repair services have for you:
- Fully guaranteed work
- Free quotes
- Guaranteed prices
- Most work completion in four to six weeks
- House calls in the Perth metro area
