Jim Bates

Jim’s Clock Repair has been cleaning, repairing, and restoring clocks in Florida for more than 40 years. The company is owned and managed by Jim Bates, a factory-authorized service technician for the Howard Miller Clock Co, Ridgeway, Sligh, and Seth Thomas.

Jim has always had an interest in antiques, and clocks in particular. He found that early in his collecting career, he could acquire non-working clocks for significantly less than those in working condition. He taught himself to restore and repair the clocks with a little research and a lot of trial and error; but he found he was good at it, and he actually enjoyed the work too. As a result, he’s been collecting and repairing clocks ever since.

Once Jim began receiving requests from friends of friends and extended family members, he realized his hobby could actually be a successful business. Thus, Jim’s Clock Repair was born.

Today, Jim and his experienced support staff now service and repair clocks in central Florida, serving customers in Hernando County (including Spring Hill and Brooksville) and Pasco County (including New Port Richey and Zephyrhills).
