Jordan Renaud's life and studies in Antiquarian Clockmaking & Conservation

It's been 25 years since I first started working with clocks as a profession. Prior to that it was a hobby and a passion. A few cuckoos and Korean junk in the early days rather quickly made me realise I had better look into going with my interest in old English work sooner than later.
