S J Bean - Antique Clocks & Dial Restoration

Welcome to the S. J. Bean Clock Dial Restoration web site. My name is Simon Bean, I have been restoring antique clock dials for some years and offer full satisfaction with the quality of my work. I was taught my trade by Eddie Drage of Saxilby, Lincs, who was a leading and renowned expert in Longcase clock Painted Dial restoration before his recent and untimely passing away. All Grandfather clock dials are repainted using only paint, not ink. Please take the time to have a look at my Painted dial "Worlds" of which I am very proud, they are all hand painted and not transfers.

Please take the time to browse through the examples of the work carried out. All the Grandfather Clock dials are sympathetically restored back to the original condition. Even painted dials that might be considered "too far gone" can be fully restored. We also undertake cleaning and servicing, mainly on Long case / Grandfather Clock movements. Our movements are not simply "dunked" into a cleaning solution, they are all stripped and the parts are individually cleaned and then re assembled. Please visit our Cleaning and Servicing clock movement page.

Please visit my Setting Up Guides page where you can see simple setting up guides for 8 day Grandfather clocks, 30 hour Grandfather Clocks and also a simple setting up guide for weighted Vienna Regulators.

If you are interested in purchasing a particular type of Antique clock, please contact me, I may be able to help you find what you are looking for. We often carry a stock of Grandfather clocks as well as Vienna wall Clocks and Vienna Regulators, fusee Bracket Clocks, Mantle Clocks etc. All enquiries are welcome.
