I just got my clock back from clockworks, took about 2 1/2 wks from the day I sent it and cost about $120 Cdn after the smoke cleared. Clock works great.

I guess I spoke too soon!! My new clock packed it in already. I called clock works and they figure it is the coil in it which they do not guarantee, too many other electrical issues could cause this problem they say. Said I could have put a Quartz system in it for the same price and it would not have had this problem.Why didnt they tell me this in the first place?? Oh well. Here goes another $120.

Ya, I recieved my clock back from clock works not that long ago and it doesn't keep accurate time. The clock runs to fast but I don't want to pull it out and send it back to them. The shipping costs will be another $60 or so, I haven't called them to see if it would be warrantied or not but I'm sure they won't pay the shipping anyways. It cost me roughly $120 the first time too.

I sent 3 to the clockworks to have them converted to quartz movements and cost 160 each , freihgt , exchange, taxes all in .They did a nice job and keep perfect time. I have had origionals repaired before , but they would never keep proper time , Frank

i sent them my clock, they were very helpful on informing me of what my options were; quartz, clean/repair or replace the works. i went for the replace and it works very good. no issues and they were very quick about it. best of luck!

Got my new Quartz clock back and put it in about 2 weeks ago. Just checked it and the time is dead on. That only cost about $300 :(
