Leigh Extence

Leigh Extence is a specialist in fine antique clocks having worked alongside many of the worlds leading dealers, collectors and institutions. To read a more comprehensive biography click on the link above. As well as a dealer Leigh operates as an independent horological consultant and has worked as both a researcher & presenter on the BBC magazine programme, The Antiques Show as well as writing for many national publications. He is a world authority on the carriage clocks & history of two of the leading Parisian makers of the 19th century; the Jacot and Drocourt families, with the research into both on-going. In 2004 Leigh was elected a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, being raised to the Livery the following year. Leigh Extence is member of the British Antique Dealers Association. A large part of the research that I publish alongside the clock information, especially with regard to carriage clocks, is freshly sourced by myself and therefore previously unknown; in some cases having taken years to gather and verify. I am of the belief that knowledge should be shared, but I would kindly ask that any of my research details used elsewhere bears an acknowledgement to this effect.
