The objects offered must, in view of their cultural-historical value, be treated in a very responsible manner. In the first place, the aim is to maintain the original parts as long as possible. Restorations often consist of reconstructing missing parts so that the clock or barometer can function again with all the possibilities that the original maker has given to it. The exterior also deserves a lot of attention to restore it to old listening.

Before and during the restoration, the customer will be extensively communicated about the work to be done in order to achieve a successful end result.
