This site shows my antique mantel clock and watch collection (sometimes mantle clock in US). Most of the mantel clocks are of the small Connecticut style made by companies such as New Haven, Jerome and Company and (maybe!) Junghans. They are all 30 hour mantel clocks.

For each timepiece there is a photo and description - including any makers' marks, serial numbers and, where useful, the photos of labels inside the clock cases


I started collecting these mantel clocks because I love their simplicity - I could look inside them and understand how they worked! Also although antique clocks are usually expensive, some antique mantel clocks can sometimes still be found quite cheaply in junk stores and car boot (garage) sales.

Sometimes I have bought what I thought was an American mantel clock but upon further inspection found it to be a European mantel clock impersonating an American mantel clock! These were made by Teutonia and (maybe!) Junghans. You will see a couple of these interesting imposters in my European mantel clock collection, where you will also see a "savings" mantel clock for which "Money is Time"!

The watches date from about the 1950's. I also have a couple of pocket watches, including one made by Waltham.

I also confess to having some very interesting electric clocks!

I hope you enjoy my collection.

I would love to know more about the timepieces in my collection so if you can tell me anything more about any of my clocks or watches (or just to comment on the site) then please E-mail me at:
