Our new section will feature a selection of comments from letters we have been written. We have so many lovely letters, this is just a small selection. I hope some of the comments below, show you how much we care about our antique clocks and our service in general.
Dear Valerie and Roy,
I am finally getting you a photo of this beautiful clock in its new home - we absolutely love it and it has been the finest purchase we have made in many years. We know we will enjoy it for years to come. Don't be surprised if we try and visit you on our next trip to the UK....

Dear Valerie & Roy,
Just to say the clock looks very nice in my new home and i am very pleased to have such a nice longcase clock. I found you on the internet after 20 years. Will tell people where to go if they want a nice longcase clock. I will even come with them if I need to. Once again thank you so much.
Kind regards, Michael Walker - UK
Again, thank you for everything. each time the clock chimes or each time we view its beauty it reminds us of a wonderful trip to London. It is definately the focal point of our home.
Thanks Again, Mr and Mrs Partridge - Illinois USA
Still keeping a steady beat here in Texas, let us know if you ever come across another .......longcase
Warm wishes, Top Executive USA
Dear Mr Clements,
My wife and I would like to express our thanks to you and your family for the warm welcome we received, both at your home, and in London. we very much appreciated the time given to us. I felt it was a pleasure dealing with people who clearly have considerable knowledge on Grandfather Clocks; this certainly provided us with peace of mind that we are buying from a reputable company... I understand that you enjoy golf, therefore when you arrive in Aberdeen, with the clock, we would be delighted to take you on to our local course for a game. so please bring your golf clubs.
Kind regards, Dr Stevenson DHC MBE
Dear Roy & Val,
When John told me we were going to visit a clock shop, i had no idea of what to expect. imagine my surprise to find we were visiting your lovely home. Thank you for a most delightful day learning about clocks. It was as if I had travelled back in time. I find it mind boggling to think of the craftsmanship and the time required to make these beautiful clocks. they are truly works of art.......As soo, as we returned home, the perfect spot for the clock popped out. I can already see it there and thinking as if I had almost have it ticking. We look forward to you bringing this magnificent piece of life into or home.
Again thank you for a wonderful experience
Dear Mr Clements,
Thank you so much for sending the little bottle of clock oil, it arrived safely a week or so ago, and it is greatly appreciated in order to keep our George Wood longcase running smoothly. It was lovely to talk with you and your son in London. I've been so pleased with my clock these 11 years, and look forward to many, many more years. Thank you again for the clock oil - and for your friendliness and helpfulness.
Sincerely, Pat - New York
The John Wise arrived today, in two massive crates weighing a total of 143KG. I don't think I have ever seen anything better packed. it seems to like its position, previously occupied by a walnut veneered clock of about c1735, because it was in beat straight away, haven't had to move it at all........

Dear Mr Clements,
The last time you came to my aid in respect of a timepiece was Jan 2005 and you, a internationally renowned horologist, generously agreed to repair my wife's simple battery operated clock. At the time I was president of ........ and have now retired back to my family business. i was astonished at your wonderful old fashioned thoughtfulness to take on this tiny frivilous task which quite frankly marked a rare and priceless quality in todays first age of greed. .... I wanted to place on record my and my wife, Eve's gratitude to you and your team at Pendulum of Mayfair. You all reflect the very finest in your field.
With deepest appreciation, Michael Williams-Jones
The clock duly arrived on the 9th June. I am very pleased with it. The packing was excellent and the clock fully matches your description. If you ever see another clock by ......... I would be very interested in buying it........
Many thanks for your courtesy and efficiency, John Houstone - Australia
Just a quick note to let you know the clock arrived safely and soundly on our doorstep in Houston earlier this week and has been keeping perfect time ever since. It is a magnificent piece and we are most happy to have it amongst our growing family of longcase clocks.
Mr and Mrs Garrett - USA
Dear Roy and Valerie,
Just a short note to say the biggest thank you for all your help in returning our grandfather clock to full working order, through the skillful hands of Matt in your workshop. Thank you for the warmest of welcomes into your home and for the kindness of your hospitality in the surprise provision of a very sufficient lunch, which was well received after the long drive up from Essex, last Friday. It was a great pleasure to see your lovely and amazing collection of clocks and furniture and to learn so much about their history - fascinating in every way.....
Sincerely yours, Don Whyte - Essex, UK
Please forgive the familiarity, only I am afraid I don't know your surname. thank you so much for repairing my barometer! it has been in my family for such a long time and I am delighted to have it back in working order as it its so much more reliable than the weather forecast. A little note such as this is not enough to tell you how happy I am to see it working again, as it seems like an old friend who has been given a new lease of life! So very many thanks.
With kind regards and much appreciation, C.Blake - Cheshire
