 Tom Harris Clocks (THC) is a craft manufacturer…

Based in Lanarkshire, the business was set up by Tom Harris after a career in operations management in the public and private sectors, to expand a hobby into a business.  Having studied construction and design, Tom developed his clock-building skills over the years, with formal specific cabinet making courses together with the support of master craftsmen.

THC specialises in clocks hand built to order that are inspired by classic examples, and designed with a contemporary feel. Each THC built floor, table and wall clock is made from sustainable hardwoods sourced locally; and is completed with a quality German engineered clock movement, from either Kieninger® – the oldest existing movement manufacturer, Hermle – the world’s leading movement producer, or UTS the primary European provider of crystal quartz movements.

Quality is the business’s driving principle; achieved in manufacturing by applying good design, using only the best materials and employing a blend of traditional skills with a modern production approach; resulting in a limited number of hand-built clocks, attracting the discerning customer looking for something unique and special.

” Hand-built to order, producing superb clocks that enhance today’s home, or workplace. I enjoy creating a beautiful piece of furniture, which other people can take satisfaction in owning.” [Tom Harris].
