Roger Lascelles London
It's over 30 years since Roger Lascelles came up with the idea to make clocks that follow the prevailing trends in interior design yet have a definite link to the past. Back in 1986, Roger was an antique dealer specialising in clocks, most of which were being exported to the USA and never likely to return to the UK. This prompted him to start photographing the pretty dial designs on grandfather clocks, printing them and then turning them into clocks with quartz movements to sell in his London antique shop. People liked the idea and with the help of his wife and three staff they set up a small workshop later that year to make clocks with an antique feel. In 1989 he even won a BBC radio award for small businesses who successfully take an idea to reality. Now over 30 years later the company is based in a 12,000 sqft factory in North-West London with a team of designers, assemblers and office staff. We are by far the UK's largest clock manufacturer and produce some 100,000 clocks each year.
