ClockDoc – History and contributors
ClockDoc is currently managed by Eddy Odell (UK) and Jan van Harten (Netherlands) with a group of ‘Friends of ClockDoc’, a group of world-wide collectors. The site had a major technical update in 2023 with significant changes in the underlying technology, reorganization and addition of much new material
The site was founded around 2010 by Jan van Harten, Fons Dehing, James Kelly, Gijs Veraart and is a reference site for collectors. In the early years most images were of clocks in the collections of a few European collectors. Over the years the number of contributors has increased and our thanks are due to many collectors worldwide, particularly the following (in no special order):
Michel Viredaz, James Kelly, David Read, Frank Dunkel, Nick Maag, Agustí Tantdetemps, John Hubert, Ted Bosschieter, Gijs Veraart, Peter Smith from Horologix, Rick Thomes, Tim Rickard, Pierhead Publications, and Barrie Smith.
John Hubert, Geoff Horner, J Alan Bloore, Richard Hatch and Fons Dehing have all provided header files and Peter Sweeney videos for the 2020 update and we are looking for more header file authors. Thank you all.
We are also grateful to the auction houses who have given permission to use their auction photographs and listing information, notably Gardiner Houlgate (UK) and Schmitt-Horan (US).
