Featured in The Telegraph. Read the article. Clock Workshop is a third-generation family business, owned and run by Steve Fletcher. We know that your clock or watch is important to you, whether it’s an antique grandfather clock that has been in your family for years, a mantle clock that has become part of the furniture, or the watch you use every day.
Steve’s grandfather started work in Witney in 1910 and set up his own shop – a business which was carried on by Steve’s father. After gaining first class qualifications from a British Horological Institute college course in 1973, Steve began making and repairing clocks and watches himself. He regularly services clocks that his grandfather and father worked on, continuing 100 years of family craftsmanship and customer service.

Fred Fletcher started repairing clocks and watches when he was still at school and started his apprenticeship at White’s watch repairers on Batt Hill, Witney in 1910. He returned to the trade after serving in the army in the First World War and eventually started his own clock and watch repair business in The Crofts. He was still repairing clocks when he died in 1982. (Watch and Clockmakers rarely fully retire!)
Like his father before him, John Fletcher started repairing watches while he was still at school and, after national service, joined the family business. He became one of the area’s main trade watch repairers, working for a number of Oxford jeweller’s shops. He carried on repairing watches until his untimely death in 2007.
Our watchmaker, James Douglas, started repairing watches when he was five years old. He went on to do his apprenticeship at Garrard’s of Regent Street before setting up on his own in the early sixties. In 1965 he joined our team and customers are still benefitting from his his vast knowledge and skill today.
