Welcome to The Hands of Time


Fred Warren Hi, my name is Fred Warren, owner of The Hands of Time. I specialize in the repair and restoration of both vintage and newer clocks. I treat every clock I receive with the utmost care, as if it were a precious heirloom in my own family. My shop is based in Amarillo, Texas.


I have been in business for about five years, and have serviced over 350 customers. Many of my customers are repeat or referral customers. They primarily live in the Amarillo area but are also from New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Kansas.


Most of the clocks I restore are of early-American, German, or French manufacture. However, I will evaluate and repair just about any type of clock. I have had a wide variety of different types of clocks come through my shop, and I can work on just about any clock. I repair and restore:
  • Grandfather clocks
  • Wall and mantel clocks
  • Anniversary clocks
  • Cuckoo clocks
  • Antique clocks

Services I Offer


If your clock runs too fast or slow, does not run at all, weights refuse to fall, chimes out of sequence, or you just want to give it a facelift, I can help. My services include the following:
  • Movement restoration
  • Case cleaning
  • Case repair and refinishing
  • Routine maintenance
  • Dial replacement
  • Battery movement replacement
  • Battery movement conversions


I Buy and Sell Clocks


I buy and sell American, German, and French clocks. What I have for sale at any particular time depends on what I have recently bought or sold. Most of the clocks I buy and sell are antique clocks that are 100 years old or older. Please call or email me if you are interested in buying or selling a clock.
