Clock Repair and Clock Sales

I am Philip Coggon, sole proprietor of Timely Antiques .  I have over 35 years’ experience in repairing, restoring, and servicing antique clocks of most types.

I’m downsizing my personal clock collection. See each of my “antique clocks for sale”


Currently, I do repair

American made clocks pre-1920.  My standard service charge is $100.  I also will look  at 2-weight  cuckoo clocks.

People also ask about watches.  I don’t repair watches.  But if you have a vintage pocket or wrist watch, I can refer you to a colleague who can discuss your needs, such as selling or repair.

Currently, I do not repair

Modern clocks, especially quarter hour chiming clocks. Nor 400-day/anniversary clocks.

Modern cuckoo clocks.

Modern Grandfather Clocks.    I no longer do house calls, also, I am not able to recommend an alternative. 

For clock repair information, please call or preferably text me at 970 217-0605.   If you text, please add a photo or two if you can.  It helps me assess the clock!  Call to confirm my availability.  

My workshop is in Fort Collins, CO.     All estimates are free.

Clock Repair Fees

  • From $100 for typical mantle and wall clocks: cleaning/oiling and tune-up.
  • All estimates are “plus parts”. 

  • There is no charge if it is quickly determined that the clock is non-repairable.

  • I’m downsizing my personal clock collection. See each of my “antique clock for sale” pages! 

Things said about Philip by satisfied customers:

“I knocked my 1900 German box clock off the wall & knew it was irreparable. Philip took the clock & returned it in complete repair. Philip was knowledgeable, professional, very reasonable. Remarkable!”     John S. –

“Philip has an intimate knowledge of many antique clocks, including my Pennsylvania Grandfather’s clock built in 1790. One day it stopped working. After a careful examination, the movement was refurbished and restored to good working order. He clearly has a passion for older clocks and enjoys repairing them.”     Steve G.  –

“Philip, thank you so much for your excellent repair of our clock.  My husband, Steve, is so happy to have the clock running again and he loves hearing the same ticking sound that his grandparents did.”  Sandy B. –

“Phillip has repaired two antique clocks for me.  I could tell that my clocks would be in good hands when I saw how carefully he took the first clock from my car to his work bench.  That’s why, later, I entrusted a two-hundred-year-old “banjo” clock to his repair. That, and the fact that the first clock kept perfect time.  So, now, does the second.”       Jeff W.

“I have a very big cuckoo clock that my grandfather purchased in Germany prior to World War I.  It had been sitting in a box for a number of years and had endured shipping across the country.  The clock was in much need of repair, including the case which was in pieces.  Philip brought the clock back to life and repaired the case beautifully.  He is a craftsman who obviously takes much pride in his work.   When friends see my clock and tell me they have antique clocks needing repair, I unhesitatingly refer them to Philip.”  Tom K.

Thank you again for rescuing my Seth Thomas alarm clock on Monday. I am now able to change the alarm time with no problem.  Bless you.  Barbara S.

Thank you for working so quickly  on my clock.  It looks fantastic and I cannot wait to hang it.  You are a very kind man and I appreciate everything you did without charging me an arm and a leg!  Janette W.

I really appreciate your fixing my wall clock.  It’s up and running perfectly.  I missed it when it was off the wall and with you!  Thanks again, Barbara.
