I studied Horology at Hackney Technical College as one of the first full time students ( Horology training was by correspondence courses only before this). After gaining my horological techniques qualification I took over running the family business workshops (John Winter Drake Jewellers ) for both the Coggeshall and Halstead shops. In 1973 I started my own repair business dealing with the trade only up untill 1990, when I opened a shop called Timewise in Ipswich which specialized in Watch, Clock and barometer sales and servicing, after 7 years I moved the business to a barn unit at Court Farm Brantham Suffolk. In 2002 I again moved the business to my present location and now concentrate on Restoring and repairing watches, clocks and barometers.
