Raffety is owned by Nigel Raffety, who has had a lifelong interest in horology commencing with the completion of one of the last traditional clock making apprenticeships in Clerkenwell, followed by International saleroom experience and catalogue preparation at Christies, in London.
Since establishing the business more than thirty years ago in Kensington Church Street, the area, enhanced by its proximity to Kensington Palace and its Royal presence, has become increasingly one of the most culturally important in London and today comprises more specialist art and antique shops than any other in Britain.
Over the years, Raffety has become known as a premier resource for period European clocks serving collectors, private clients, museum authorities and enthusiastic investors throughout the world. You can buy with confidence in the knowledge that we are long term members of major trade associations, including BADA and CINOA.
We deliver and install our clocks free of charge anywhere in the United Kingdom. For our overseas clients we are able to offer a fully insured door to door shipping service, expertly packed by our regular, experienced and specialist carrier.
