It also has a small range of barometers and boulle side cabinets.
Exclusivity: Starting small, buying from auctions and exhibiting at fairs, Gütlin soon built a comprehensive collection and name for themselves. ‘Not only did we sell well, but we bought well too,’ says John. ‘We’d come home with money in our pockets and a new set of clocks to restore, which was very gratifying.’ Mark says: ‘We’re engineers, with a great understanding of antique clocks, how they operate and what their values are. We are both passionate and enthusiastic about the world of clocks and want to be able to provide fine decorative items for people’s homes.’
