Welcome to Reliable Clocks and Clock Repairs, where a passion for preserving the artistry of mechanical timepieces drives everything we do. Our journey began with a simple desire to keep the timeless tradition of mechanical clocks alive and ticking.

Founded by Herman Lamprecht, inspired by a personal quest to revive his father’s beloved table clocks, Reliable Clocks and Clock Repairs emerged from a dedicated pursuit of knowledge and craftsmanship. In 2019, Herman, alongside his son Tiaan Lamprecht, embarked on a journey of discovery, reaching out to clock makers and delving into the intricacies of mechanical timekeeping.

Their hobby quickly transformed into a labor of love as they unearthed the beauty of restoring these timeless treasures. In 2020, fueled by their newfound passion, they opened the doors to our shop at Uncle Tim’s Centre, nestled in the heart of Brentwood Park, Benoni.

Company History:

Reliable Clocks and Clock Repairs traces its roots to a cherished family heirloom – a table clock that ceased to chime, prompting Herman Lamprecht to embark on a journey of discovery. For Herman, the rhythmic cadence of the clock’s chime wasn’t just about telling time; it was an integral part of the home’s ambiance, a symbol of tradition and comfort.

With a background in aircraft mechanics, Herman possessed a keen understanding of mechanical intricacies. His innate curiosity and technical acumen fueled his quest to unravel the mysteries of clockwork. As he reached out to clock manufacturers and delved into the nuances of timepiece restoration, Herman realized the growing demand for skilled artisans in the field.

Early Beginnings and Exploration:

In 2019, Herman, alongside his son Tiaan, transformed their shared passion into a humble home-based operation. However, the confines of their household soon proved insufficient to accommodate the influx of clocks in need of repair and restoration. Recognizing the need for a dedicated workspace, they embarked on a new chapter of growth.

Growth and Expansion:

The demand for Reliable Clocks and Clock Repairs continued to surge, surpassing the capacity of their home-based setup. Concerns regarding privacy and security prompted the decision to establish a brick-and-mortar presence. In 2020, the doors to their shop at Uncle Tim’s Centre swung open, providing a welcoming haven for clock enthusiasts and clients alike.

The company’s commitment to excellence didn’t go unnoticed. In 2022, Reliable Clocks and Clock Repairs garnered attention in the local media, with features in the Citizen Newspaper and radio coverage on Mix 93.8.
