About Christopher S. Barrow

A member of the British Horological Society, Chris Barrow has been an Electronic design engineer for almost thirty years. For the past twenty years or so, he has been cleaning and repairing pocket watches, to the extent of running a successful, small web-based business as a profitable sideline over the past three years.

He sees it as his mission to rescue these lovely things from the scrap heap and to restore them to working order for the enjoyment of others. Chris lives in Leicester with his partner Anne, and their two moggies. He is also a lover of wood, being an enthusiastic carpenter and furniture maker in his spare time
