Wayne Schaich of Almaden Clocks in San Jose, CAWayne Schaich of Almaden Clocks has been in the business of repairing, refurbishing, and selling clocks of all kinds for decades; his business card shares that it’s “clock repair for three generations“.  As we have an old grandfather clock which has been in my husband’s family a long time, we have had several occasions to patronize this long time Silicon Valley business.

Grandfather clocks at Almaden Clocks in San JoseNow located in the Cambrian area of San Jose, Almaden Clocks is one of a small handful of clock repair shops in Silicon Valley (I think that there are only 2!).   This store has an incredible array of clocks of every size (and Wayne’s business card boasts “Northern California’s Largest Selection of Grandfather Clocks”). There are some ships’ clocks, too, which can manage to keep the time despite the rolling waves of the sea.

If you have never been into a full service clock shop, I suggest you make this outing and head to Almaden Shops for a peek at an amazing array of time pieces big and small. In some ways, it’s a step back in time (couldn’t resist).
