Loomes Clock & Watchmakers
Shopping | Stamford
Proper British watchmakers occupy the old gaoler's house next to the town bridge in Stamford. Loomes are an old established family firm who not only restore but also make fine timepieces. Our qualified and experienced staff can restore almost any kind of antique domestic clock, from an early long-case to a modern quarter-chiming wall clock. For larger items, we are able to collect and deliver and the clock is guaranteed 'in the home'. Loomes watches are famous around the world. Loomes are currently the only British firm who can supply an entirely British made mechanical wristwatch. From our heritage workshops, we produce only a hundred watches a year. Each is hand-made by skilled staff, using components designed and manufactured in Stamford. Loomes watches are available in stainless steel or 18ct solid gold cases.
