Frank's interests in clocks began at the age of 10. He got his start by helping a neighborhood clock maker and was taught the basics of clock restoration. Later in life, Frank received his formal training in Horology by attending Gem City College of Watch/Clock Making of Quincy, Illinois. He now specializes in mechanical and antique clock/watch restoration. He has been working in the field for over 25 years. Karla Palasciano went on to college and then to study Horology before joining her father at Eastern Standard Time. in 2002 Karla is a valued colleague and talented clockmaker. These 2 Horologists carry on a tradition which goes back hundreds of years, nurtured by the apprenticeship system in which a master shares and passes on his knowledge, thus perpetuating the craft from generation to generation. Eastern Standard Clock Company relocated to Purcellville in 1995. Since then the business has flourished under the guidance of these two master horologists. The clock shop has grown to become an integral and familiar part of western Loudoun County, Virginia and is well known for providing unhurried and uncompromising craftsmanship, expertise, and service. Since there is a constant backlog year around, we ask that our customers be willing to wait several months to have the work done and to allow for proper testing and adjusting of your clock. We feel it is an important task for us to educate the owners of fine clocks as to the damage and loss of value that is done by careless and incompetent so-called "experts" who set up shop with little or no training and who literally charge customers for the privilege of practicing on their clocks!
