This site does not have a "shopping cart" feature - I expect buyers to have questions, and probably to view the clocks before buying. Contact me here. The contact form can also be used for ordering smaller items - watch glasses, etc.

I have found these carriers to be mostly reliable, but I cannot be held responsible should they prove otherwise:

  • Royal Mail
  • Parcelforce. Not recommended for delicate items!
  • FedEx for USA and most international destinations. Expensive for small items.
  • Amtrak (in UK) - good for large items
