I have a brass Stewart stem wind car clock I want to install. The clock is stuck and needs work. Who does this kind of work?

My watch guy is Girard Sensoli. Google Girard's Watches and you will find it. Good work and relatively inexpensive (especially compared to typical jewelry store prices).

Richard,
You might try The Clocksmith at 217 West Main St.,
Grass Valley. The number is (530) 272-5746.
The fellow there worked on an early brass rim wind dash mounted clock that I had a few years ago, I don't remember the make (it wasn't a Stewart). He did a good job.

Phil I have an old dash mounted clock that my Dad had in the 40's and it is a "Standard Rim Wind-Rim Set. I think it come out of a Packard, but I was only 6 years old when he got this clock. I have a stem wind that he made a replica of a 14 high Grandfather clock when we lived in Redondo Beach in the 40's.
The early Pat. Date is Feb 5, 1907 and there is 6 more and the latest is October 12, 1915. The setting ring is worn enough that my Dad put a wire around the rim t try and make it work. I can wind it but have to be careful or it will not wind.
Thank you for the address

Bill D,

I work on cuckoo clocks. It's one of my sicknesses, um, I mean hobbies. What does yours need?

Would this qualify as an antique clock? On the firewall in Otis there is a rubber pocket watch holder and there is a small watch stuck there. When Otis first became a member of our family I wondered what that gizmo on the firewall was so I posted a picture and a question. I think it was Hap that answered that it was there for holding a pocket watch. We found an old watch and stuck it there.
