1851: London universal exhibition

At the very first Universal Exhibition in 1851 marking the start of the modern age, Queen Victoria acquired a pendant watch equipped with a LeCoultre calibre.

The show also earned Antoine LeCoultre a gold medal for his gold chronometer, as well as his numerous achievements: lever winding mechanism, cutting-edge manufacturing processes and excellent parts allowing for interchangeability. From then on, the Manufacture would receive the most prestigious distinctions.

The proprietors Father and Son, John and Mark Coxhead have a combined passion for collecting clocks and have turned their dream into a very successful business dealing in quality restored clocks. This family business established 18 years ago is located from a pretty 19th century shop in the Kings Road, Chelsea, London. This prestigious area is world renowned for fine quality antique shops and fine art galleries.

Mark and John have been selling and restoring clocks for the last 18 years and because they have a large amount of stock always for sale in their showroom they see a big cross reference of antique clocks having restored their own showroom clocks as well as customers clocks. They restore the clocks for the British Home Office and for the Royal Lifeguards, Hyde Park. We are also proud to have sold clocks to members of the British Royal Family.

All their clocks are restored by themselves and come with a full years guarantee in the UK. They also stock a wide selection of carriage and wall clocks ranging from unusual English station wall clocks to fine Regency period drop dial clocks.  Also they carry a variety of interesting French period carriage clocks ranging from simple timepieces to repeaters. All their carriage clocks have the original platform escapements and not replacement modern ones.
