Creative time engineering expertise

Distinguished by engineering and visual design, utilising the most modern techniques and materials available we have introduced countless innovations to the art and science of clockmaking.


At Smith of Derby, our creativity and ingenuity is critical to the process of taking original concepts through to the successful implementation of a modern architectural or artistic timepiece, sculptural or kinetic engineering project.  Smith of Derby has created many world records and patents over the 400 years of its existence, and we ensure our skills are maintained, handed down and current.

In all creative engineering projects we undertake, our team work seamlessly with the Clients' team of architects, designers and engineers, from concept to completion.  We're proud of our craftsmanship, honed over the generations, and having an international team of designers and specialists allows our cultural experiences to shine through in our design concepts.

From one-off commissions to city and development wide features, by integrating design, manufacturing, installation and service, we produce clockmaking and kinetic projects of technical excellence.
