Clock Dial Repairs & Reproductions


The Old Dial Problem 

Thousands of valuable antique clocks in homes, shops, and at shows, suffer from a major problem - an old damaged porcelain dial. Throughout many years of reliable timekeeping, a clock's porcelain dial can easily chip or break, due to the fragile nature of the porcelain material.

The New Dial Solution

ProClocks is the only source in the United States that can genuinely and completely reproduce your original porcelain dial. Not a repair, not a paper look-a-like, but a new identical porcelain dial.   We can work with any shape, color, or size, up to 13 inches in diameter. We can also produce custom dials for clockmakers, or hobbyists who want to add a creative touch to their clock creation. Just provide the design, and each dial will be custom made, complete with production signatures, if desired.  The painstaking labor is performed just like the original dial was produced. These exact replicas are hand-made by skilled Old World craftsmen of the trade. The dial's numerals and letters are hand-painted on fired porcelain, instead of using imitation decals on paper.  Additionally, we also repair porcelain statue clocks. We repair only the part that is damaged, then carefully blend it to match the original color.

ProClocks is proud to announce that we were chosen to provide the multiple dials for the most complicated clock in the world being made through Mark Frank's creative imaginations.  It consists of over 10,000 parts and 1,000 gears to provide a masterpiece of modern horological development.  Due to be completed in 2015, we are currently working all the planetary and time dials for this clock.  Stay tuned for updates of its progress.
