About Olde Time Antique Clocks and Barometers
Olde Time like so many antique businesses was formed out of a passion for ‘old clocks’. Paul Nunn has been an enthusiastic collector of antique clocks for over thirty years with a genuine love and fascination for antique horology and when friends began constantly pestering him to sell some of his collection he decided to comply with their wishes. He started ‘Olde Time’ in 1993, from small beginnings and rapidly expanded the company with his partner Tracy Wright. Very soon clients were finding their way to rural Norfolk from all over the country impressed by the quality and variety of beautiful clocks on offer.
Olde Time were pleased to be elected to join ‘BADA’ (British antique dealers association) and LAPADA (The London and provincial antiques dealers association) and from then on the company has evolved combining the talents of the most skilful, experienced and passionate specialists to produce a high profile antique clock and barometer business. ‘Olde Time’ are also members of both the AHS (Antiquarian Horological Society) and the B.H.I (British Horological Institute). Located just outside the Cathedral City of Norwich Olde Time soon began exhibiting at major antique fairs up and down the country and as the business grew Paul enlisted the services of a top clockmaker and cabinetmaker to help lighten the load of restoration work that was rapidly increasing.
