Hampshire Clock Works, formerly Baldwin Clocks, is a small clock repair business in Twyford, Winchester. Our grade two listed building is home to our workshop where repairer Scott Jeffery (BSc MBHI) completes all of our clock repairs on site.
Our workshops are well equipped with a mixture of old and new, from war era machinery to modern micro-welding technology. Many jobs require repairs or manufactured components which cannot be outsourced or bought, thanks to our unique collection of antique and modern tools, we are able to complete many complex repairs with ease.
For those with an interest in the mechnical, scott will be introducing some of our tooling via the ‘blog’ over the upcoming months.
Who is Scott?
Scott Jeffery is the current owner of Hampshire Clock Works, alongside his wife Charlotte. He is the main contact at the shop and almost certainly the person you will be dealing with.
With an introduction to engineering via the Aerospace industry, Scott completed a BTech national diploma in Aerospace engineering before setting off for a degree in Motorsport technology, where he learned that life behind CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software was not for him.
On completion of the Degree, and favouring the workshop life, Scott joined the British Horological institute with the dream of becoming a clock/watchmaker.
Scott met Chris at age 23, where he was immediately taken on board as his apprentice, and very shortly thereafter started Hampshire clock works from the shop in Twyford, working his apprenticeship alongside study for his MBHI.
Scott is now involved with the British horological institute as an examiner to the next generation of clockmakers.
He is also the author of An Introductory Guide to Repairing Mechanical Clocks which has been well received by reviewers on amazon.
Who is Chris?
Chis Baldwin, now retired owner of Baldwin clocks has been repairing clocks in the winchester area for over 50 years.
With a history in aerospace engineering since the age of 16, he started repairing clocks at age 23 under the watchful eye of Mr Legg, southampton clock and watchmaker who cared for many local clocks.
in the mid 90’s Chris purchased and restored our current building which was on the verge of collapse, and it has been a clock shop ever since.
Who is Charlotte?
Charlotte and Scott met shortly after starting Hampshire Clock Works and were married in 2017. She works behind the scenes doing all of the paperwork and running about to keep the business running.
