timepiece sales. From an early age, he knew he wanted to work on pieces of time for a living. He cultivated a unique living that intertwines science, art and history.

            Just before graduating high school, Paul told his parents he wanted to study horology. They suggested that he study at the Joseph Bulova School of Watch Making in Queens, New York.  

            From the Catskills, he took the first step in his journey to become a horologist. Paul continued to gain experience in the industry working for various watch and clock companies. In 2000, he opened his repair shop at 311 County Line Road in Gilbertsville. In 2015, he added a showroom to display restored timepieces that are also keepers of chronological events.

            As you walk into his shop, you will be greeted by his charming cats Nora and Daisy. The felines travel with Paul to the shop daily. They take a drive to work like everyone else. After a while, you are struck with the meditative ticking of clocks and watches from various times in history. "We like ticking", said Paul.

            Paul is fascinated by history. When he is working on a timepiece, Paul enjoys putting the history of the watch in perspective and view the entire story it tells. The story of when and where it was made, the person that crafted it as well as the political, social and economic climates at the moment.

            In his personal collection, he groups timepieces through historical connections. Living histories are an interest of Paul's and he participates with the 26 North Carolina and 24 Michigan reenactment groups.

            19 years ago, Paul settled in Gilbertsville. He immediately felt comfortable. "It felt the most like home. A small town. Everyone knows each other. It felt right here. Never felt as welcome anywhere, as I felt here".

            Pennsylvania Clock Company is a great local shop for expert clock and watch repairs, restorations, and watch sales. Paul has an interesting collection of vintage and antique timepieces that tell colorful historical stories.

            In addition, the company provides in-service work on large clocks. Paul also gives lectures on clocks and watches. He educates and makes people aware of the timepieces they own. His next talk will be at Walnut Woods, a retirement community in Boyertown.

            Stop in and visit with Paul, Nora and Daisy for anything that has to do with timepieces.
