Hampshire Clock Works, formerly Baldwin Clocks, is a busy clock repair business in Twyford, Winchester. Our grade two listed building is home to our workshop where repairer Scott Jeffery (BSc FBHI) 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 that 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 mechanical, Scott will be introducing some of our tooling via the ‘articles’ tab 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. He has recently been awarded his FBHI.
Scott is now involved with the British horological institute headquarters as an examiner to the next generation of clockmakers, he also tutors component manufacturing courses at the institute, preparing students for their exams.
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?
Chris 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, a 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.
