About Symon Boyd

Symon’s interest in clocks started when he was 15 years old, working in a local jewellers. He then pursued his career in 1976 by attending The British Horological Institute in Manchester where he studied for three years. Now a Fellow of the British Horological Institute (FBHI). This is one of the most prestigious horological qualifications in the world.

Symon then continued to further his knowledge and skills by working in a prestigious London workshop. In 1984 Symon set up his own business in Cheshire buying, selling and restoring domestic clocks, barometers and music boxes and built a very successful business mainly through client recommendation.

Symon developed an interest in Turret Clocks and restored local landmarks including Manchester University, Portico Library and local churches.

In 2013 Symon and Jacqui relocated to Timsbury, to be closer to their daughters. This business quickly took off and once again the personal recommendations bringing in new business.

The opportunity arose to take on more turret clock work and Symon is now heavily involved in the advising, conservation and maintenance of Turret clocks within a two hour radius. He has taken on the position of the Turret Clock Advisor for the Bristol Diocese
