About Us

Ian Cherkas started Carlton Clocks in 1982 in a small garage in Radlett. Over the years the business expanded to recently occupy a large showroom and workshops premises in Little Chalfont, Amersham. In March 2021, Ian decided to split Carlton Clocks into its two component parts – sales and repairs. He moved to Somerset with the sales side of the business.

All clocks we sell are sympathetically restored to the highest standard by specialist experienced craftsmen and we offer a full guarantee as to their good working order. We also stock some of the highest quality design-led modern timepieces, by Erwin Sattler and Kieninger. We deliver our clocks fully insured free of charge anywhere in the United Kingdom and include comprehensive setting up instructions. Quotations can be arranged anywhere else worldwide. Unless otherwise stated, our clocks are guaranteed for 3 years.

The repair and restoration function has remained in Little Chalfont, under the ownership of ex-employee Ashley Streather, trading as Chalfont Clocks.  The same team of horologists remains, with the same high standards of work and Chalfont Clocks will honour past guarantees .
