welcome to our store

Clocks are works of art which we enjoy because they express the sentiments and traditions of our lives. A clock that is a family heirloom is a treasure of value beyond dollars or words.

Phillips’ Clock Shop was established in 1974 by George and Marilyn Phillips. This is a family run and owned business. We have a genuine love for fine timepieces and are thrilled to have the opportunity to do what we love. We have a loyal following of customers who have also become our friends. We thank them for their business and look forward to many more years and many more friends.

George Phillips is a horologist and a member of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors. He studied watch and clock making at the North Bennett School in Boston. He worked at Chelsea Clock Company until 1974. That’s the year he opened his own shop. He has been in his current location since 1995. Our shop not only sells the world’s finest timepieces but also offers museum quality restoration and repair on grandfather clocks, mantel clocks, wall clocks, cuckoo clocks, fine wristwatches and pocket watches.

Howard Miller awarded Phillips Clock Shop their Hourglass Award for recognition of Outstanding Customer Service and Sales Achievement. And for many years, Phillips’ Clock Shop has been voted No. 1 Reader’s Choice award.

We are very pleased by a recent article in the North Shore Home magazine in the Spring of 2016 which states “Marilyn and George Phillips helm “The Only Place you can Buy Time”. “ They bring a whole new meaning to the value to time. The Phillips carry every conceivable type of timepiece from towering tubular grandfather clocks to mantel and wall clocks, ships clocks, cuckoo clocks from the world’s most respected manufactures. You’ll find one of the most extensive selections of these rare treasures for sale in their shop and on their online store. On most days, customers will observe George, wearing his magnifying loupe, painstakingly adjusting the works of a delicate antique clock or perhaps see him as he sets up a magnificently carved grandfather clock, destined to become a new family heirloom. Providing the best service possible is important to George; delivery, set-up and initial adjustments are included without charge…”

“Make the time today to visit with the Phillips and enjoy their amazing shop and the sights and sounds of their beautiful timepieces. You may leave with a new family heirloom and it won’t cost you the family fortune.”

Our focus is clocks and we genuinely care about our customer’s needs.

Just remember, Phillips’ Clock Shop is “The Only Place to Buy Time”.

Thank you for your trust and business,
George & Marilyn Phillips
