This week marks a very special celebration for one of our clockmakers. Jonathan Lee (Jon) celebrates 50 years of continuous service with the company, from school days to today. 

Jon joined the company on the 24th July 1970 at the age of 15, as a school leaver, quite literally, finishing school on the Thursday and started work on the Friday!

Jon completed his clockmaking apprenticeship over 7 years and has continued his service since then, Jonathan is one of the country’s most respected turret clockmakers.

In addition to keeping hundreds of public clocks to time, Jon helps to coach an enthusiastic and growing band of talented young clockmakers as part of our award-winning apprentice programme.

Thank you Jon and congratulations.
