Derek Roberts, who has died aged 93, was one of the world's leading horologists and a pioneer in the antique clock world.

As my mentor he was always there to encourage me from my first teenage steps in the clock world until his final years.

My obituary to Derek published in the Antiques Trade Gazette is available to read via the link below.

In July 2023 I attended the 80th Annual Convention of the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors held in the association's home town of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Whilst there I gave two lectures.

Carriage Clocks from Around the World.
The auditorium of the Clock & Watch Museum.
To coincide with the exhibition we set up and held on carriage clocks
Pierre & Alfred Drocourt, Carriage Clock Makers.
With a history of two clocks, one owned by Queen Victoria
and the other by Alice Liddell (Alice in Wonderland).
