Allegany Clock Works specializes in quality clock repair, restoration, and service for new and antique time pieces.
Joe DeGiovanni, owner, has a degree in physics, and mechanical devices have always been his passion. An interest in clocks started in 1970 with the gift of several family heirlooms. Allegany Clock Works began as a hobby collecting and restoring old clocks, and upon retirement in 1996, Joe began devoting more time to developing the hobby into a business. Since then, repairs have been made to over 850 clocks for customers both locally and through contacts established on the internet.
Recognizing the need for warranty and service work on popular name brands, certification was obtained from Howard Miller, Ridgeway & Sligh clock companies in order to become an authorized service center.
Allegany Clock Works offer ultrasonic cleaning, replacement of springs, bushings and pivots, shaft straightening, and gear repair. They also do case restoration, old glass replacement, and networking with other specialists for wood gears. Hand painting, custom clock dials, and re-silvering, are also a part of the bill of fair for clock enthusiasts now, wheres that mouse?
Free estimates, historical data and appraisals are also provided for repaired clocks that have significant antique value. Mr. DeGiovanni is a member of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors. Information is available by calling (301) 729-8558.
Allegany Clock Works also purchases and offers antique clocks for sale.
