About the Clocks - Retail and Repairs heading in Yellow Pages®
Clocks - retail and repairs refers to businesses which sell and repair clocks. Retailers offer clocks for an array of purposes, and repairs are made on site or sent to a central location.
Clocks can be digital, showing a lighted numerical display, or analog, with a numbered face and moving hands indicating the time. There are different types of clocks which serve a variety of purposes. Wall clocks have a large face which can be read from a distance, while smaller decorative clocks are designed to sit on a table or mantle. An alarm clock is capable of being set to a particular time, when a sound is played to rouse the owner. A world clock is a device which displays the time in the major time zones around the world. A countdown clock is used when counting through a time period, for example, counting down from 10 to zero.
Specialists trained in the design and function of both antique and modern clocks carry out repairs and restorations. Clock repairers clean and oil mechanical movements, replace broken parts, and restore antique and vintage clocks. Gilding and plating restoration of clock cases and dials are also undertaken by clock repairers. Search with Yellow Pages® to find a number of clocks - retail and repairs in all states in Australia.
