About Campbell & Archard Ltd

Campbell & Archard Ltd was formerly known as Gerard Campbell after its founder who was originally an engineer and started the business over 30 years ago. He is a world renowned specialist in Viennese clocks and ran the business with Joyce, his wife. Paul Archard, who had been a major collector of Vienna regulators for over 20 years, took over the business and since then acquired Derek Roberts Antiques.

Today the business specialises in early Viennese clocks between 1790 and 1850, the heyday of Viennese clock making before German mass production partially destroyed it. This period has been noted for its elegant and simple case styles as well as the great individuality between makers. The quality of workmanship is usually outstanding and not fully understood by many clock collectors.

Their stock ranges from simple eight day timepieces to complicated grand sonnerie seconds beating wall clocks and clocks with durations up to one year. Viennese clocks do not look their best in distressed and unrestored condition and as such the business restores all their clocks to a high standard, whilst respecting the originality of the pieces.
