Richard Thomas MBHI, Registered by the British Horological Institute (No 18040).
BHI Registered Professional Members are qualified professional members of the Institute, assessed for compliance with strict criteria for standards of technical competence, experience and professional practices.
You will need to be sure that your antique clock is being cared for by a skilled and responsible individual. I have several years of experience and have graduated from the British Horological Institute with a Bronze Medal in Technical Horology. The Bronze Medal is awarded by the BHI and Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, in years when there is a high standard, to the Student with the highest marks. The Examinations are sat at the end of three years study and practical work, furthermore a Portfolio of Repairs is assessed. This Portfolio and records of other significant repairs may be examined by potential customers. During 2008 I was upgraded to a full member, MBHI, only awarded after a proven record in high quality bench work and business practice.
