Leigh Extence is a specialist in Fine Antique Clocks having worked with many of  the worlds leading horological collectors, dealers and institutions. To read a more comprehensive biography click on the link above. As well as a dealer Leigh is also in demand as an independent horological  consultant having worked with the BBC and on various national publications, as  well as with a number of auction houses. He is currently the antique clock specialist,  valuer and cataloguer for leading provincial auctioneers Bearnes, Hampton &  Littlewood and is a partner in the Fine Art Consultancy firm Ashtons.   In 2004 Leigh was proud to be elected a member of the Worshipful Company of  Clockmakers being raised to the Livery in 2005.  All clocks offered for sale having been chosen for their originality, condition and  appeal. All have been fully restored to the highest standards and come with a two  year working guarantee along with a Valuation for Insurance and details of the  research undertaken on each particular piece. Henri Jacot: At present I am researching the life and carriage clocks of Henri-Louis  Jacot & his nephew Albert who took over the business; forming both a database and gallery that will be available to use on-line.   Anyone who has information on an Henri Jacot clock to help further this knowledge  is welcome to get in contact with details.   The exhibition catalogue, as shown above, will have some details of the research  undertaken so far, with the majority to be published in book form in the near future.  Pierre & Alfred Drocourt: Research into the lives of these two makers, their clocks  and working practices is well underway, with interesting facts and details already  emerging; with an exhibition to be held on November 2014.  This follows the pattern of my Jacot research and I would welcome any information  on Drocourt carriage clocks to add to the database.
