Hello, my name is Chris Bessent and my business is The Clockmaker. Welcome to my website. I have been working with clocks since the late 1970’s. Like many small boys, I enjoyed taking things apart (and sometimes even putting them back together again!) but in my case it developed into a passion and a profession.
I served my apprenticeship with a large independent jewellers in Wiltshire who were also Rolex agents. I stayed with them for a total of ten years during which time I developed my expertise and gained substantial experience of all types of clocks. After managing a high street jewellers in Bath, I spent a number of years in a variety of horological workshops around the country including those supporting the London trade.
