It doesn't much matter when you're posting it to me for repair but I am not at all keen on posting these clocks back and would prefer personal collection, which also gives you the reassurance of seeing your clock running first.I post it back if you insist but you must recognise and accept the risk of having to return it again to be reset once more.

The only other thing that might be required is a new mainspring (£35) but it's fairly rare.

If you'd like the movement and base etc polished add £100.

The suspension spring is the most fragile part and if it's damaged a new one is required (I only use genuine Horolovar suspensions - £40 fitted plus £5 each if it needs a top/bottom block or a fork).

I also offer a suspension spring identification service if you want to buy a suspension and make up your own but be aware that these springs are delicate and easily buckled while fitting the top and bottom blocks and fork, which will almost certainly render it useless.

I won't charge for resetting (once) but you must bear the cost of postage both ways. If you're looking for information on a more sophisticated type of torsion clock, visit my page on Jaeger Le Coultre ATMOS clocks.

Video streaming services have become the site for mini-platform wars unto themselves, with different services rolling out 4K, high-dynamic range video, and other improvements as they jockey for position.For more on this service check out my short guide on How to make up a suspension.Also, you'll need to know how to set the clock in beat after fitting it yourself.Having said that, unless you rewind them two or three times a year you might find them losing time after six months as the mainspring gradually loses power.Some of the prominent Torsion clock makers include Gustav Becker (Image 1), Jahresuhrenfabrik ("JUF" - who coined the 'Anniversary' name and also produced a larger "bandstand " version as in Image 2), Kienzle, Kieninger & Obergfell (Kund O), Badische Uhrenfabrik (Image 3) and Phillip Haas.The base of these torsion clocks is only thin spun brass and although most have a wooden insert for added strength, I have seen two examples of the base being damaged in the post, not from external impact but from the sheer weight of the movement on its seat board driving the two pillars into the base if the carton is dropped.
