Roy Charles

Clock and Watch Repairs

Aberdeen and Tarland


Roy Charles established his clock and watch repair business in 1965 when he opened his shop in Torry, Aberdeen. It is now a family business run by Roy and his sons, Roddy and Craig. Roddy looks after the shop in Aberdeen whilst Craig and his father carry out the watch and clock repair work in the workshop at Culsh, near Tarland.

We have over 55 years experience in the repair and maintenance of clockwork timepieces both public (tower clocks), domestic and also those used in the maritime and aviation industries.

We specialise in the restoration of antique clocks and maintenance of all types of watches from quartz to pocket watches, and the most sophisticated chronometer and chronograph wrist watches.

Clock and Watch Repairs:

If you have a clock or watch which requires attention please drop in at the shop in Aberdeen or, if you prefer, come to the workshop near Tarland. Please telephone first so that we can be sure to be there when you visit. We will provide a detailed quotation before proceeding with any work.

We can also make house-calls to service large clocks or to collect them for repair in the workshop.

Clock and Watch Servicing:

In order to lengthen the life of your clock or watch, it should be serviced and oiled approximately every three to five years.

How long do clock and watch repairs take?

Watch repairs usually take about two or three weeks.

Clock repairs can take a little longer. We often restore clocks of a considerable age, especially long-case clocks which can be over 200 years old. This can involve making replacement wheels, arbors and other parts. It requires skill, experience and time to complete this type of work. As there is also considerable demand for clock repairs it may take between four and six weeks to complete depending on our workload.
