To make an OAK Clock we use kiln dried PRIME EUROPEAN OAK. In other words, we use top grade timber. All our OAK comes from sustainable sources and is FSC/PEFC certified. Typically golden-brown in colour, with a straight grain and a medium to course texture.
We individually make every Oak Clock to order. Our first step is to prepare the oak, which involves cutting, planing, drilling, routing and sanding the timber. After that, we prepare the key hole, which is used for wall mounting the clock. The next step is to seal the oak with a clear wax coating. We use clear wax as it does not change the appearance of the oak, it merely acts as a protective barrier from absorbing natural oils in the skin. If you prefer either dark brown or black wax, please let us know by adding a NOTE at checkout stage. After waxing, we inset the spent cartridge cases and fit the studs. Finally, we fit the mechanism and choice of hands. Because we do not make the mechanisms, each fully assembled clock is tested for a minimum of 24 hours before being despatched.
All clocks are boxed, before being packaged for despatch. Wherever possible we use paper or cardboard packaging. Of course we have a duty to do our bit for the environment, whilst at the same time ensuring our products arrive undamaged. Because it is sometimes necessary to use alternative packaging, all of it can be recycled so please do your bit too.

SHIPPING OAK CARTRIDGE CLOCK
We send all items via Royal Mail or Parcelforce using a Signed For service. Shipping costs are determined by the size and weight of the item ordered, however you can choose whether the item is shipped first or second class. Shipping costs for multiple items on the same order will therefore be determined by the total weight and size of the packaging required to ship.
CARING FOR YOUR OAK CARTRIDGE CLOCK
Most importantly avoid positioning the clock close to a direct heat source, for instance on top of a wood burning stove. Equally important, do not place it close to a water source. An occasional dry dusting should be all that is required. To dust the clock face we recommend using a small brush, being especially careful not to catch the hands. Batteries fit tightly into the mechanisms. Therefore, we advise wrapping a small piece of ribbon or paper around the battery before it is inserted. As a result, it’s easier to remove the battery when it needs changing.
All measurements are approximate. Whilst we take every care to make each item to the dimensions specified, a few mm difference is possible, therefore a slight variance should be anticipated. The font of the 15cm clock is different to that of the 20cm and 25cm clocks. These clocks are designed for indoor use only.
