The ancient craft of watch and clock making has been around for centuries (or even longer perhaps).

My father, Rod Clark, is currently Nelson’s only fully qualified practicing watchmaker and we’re very lucky indeed to have him with us at Benjamin Black Goldsmiths.

We’re keeping him busy with plenty of repairs, overhauls, services and watch batteries. So when our friend Ishna Jacobs (photographer extraordinaire) popped in to take a few snaps, she had plenty of elements to choose from.

Ishna is great at capturing the art in our work and the work in our art.

She is a talented artist in her own right, as you can see from these stunning images…from Rod’s watchmaking corner…
