At the 1-800-4CLOCKS.com Store in Grand Central Station, literally almost all kinds of clocks and watches are repaired, from grandfather clocks to wall clocks to atomic and cuckoo clocks. Antique grandfather clocks and all kinds of mechanical clocks in general are one specialty. Almost all kinds of quartz clocks are repaired as well, which usually means replacing their movements. As most people who are looking to get their antique grandfather clock or wall clock or mantel clock or pocket watches repaired know, there is a tremendous shortage of qualified individuals to repair these clocks and watches. 1-800-4CLOCKS rarely ever even goes out of its way to mention clocks repair and watch repairs, because of the existing backlog of work in this area.
1-800-4CLOCKS is addressing this challenge in 2 ways, the first of which leads to actively seeking articulate and telegenic individuals who are also expert in the repair of clocks. The plan is to make one or hopefully a series of streaming videos, which are planned to be launched on a website for which the domain was recently acquired by 1-800-4CLOCKS, which is www.clocks.tv. The clocks.tv website is expected to be formally launched within the next 2 months.
Individuals with existing clock instructional videos or streaming video are encouraged to contact 1-800-4CLOCKS, as are those who might be interested in making new ones. The more knowledge that can be shared in this field of horology and clocks, the better. Everyone in current and future generations can benefit.
In addition, and a separate point, 1-800-4CLOCKS is planning to list a locator on its website for clocks repair people which is searchable by zip code. This is being provided as a public service. Owners of grandfather clocks, wall clocks, mantle clocks and more should benefit when they are in need of this service, which by its nature tends to be more local (although repairs for individuals and organizations all around the world who mail their clocks and watches to 1-800-4CLOCKS for repair). This is obviously especially less practical for grandfather clocks. It is hoped people throughout time will benefit.
