What makes us the best?


Charles Hellige
Proprietor, Clock Genius

We’ve been in business 22 years and have earned an impeccable reputation for our expertise. Our three Clock makers/technicians boast a combined experience of over 80 years.

We are the only full-service clock repair shop in the area that is equipped to handle EVERY type of clock, i.e., residential, business/commercial, civic & liturgical.

We also sell and service church bells and electronic Carillons.

The Clock Works! uses only the very finest, most expensive lubricants, insuring an excellently running clock and extended intervals between scheduled routine maintenance. Your clock runs better, lasts longer and requires less frequent servicing.

We pride ourselves in prompt, expert repairs. You won't need to wait months for your clock to be repaired as in most clock repair shops. In fact, most of our repairs are done in three weeks or less.

We serve ALL of St. Louis and St. Louis County, as well as the Jefferson, St. Charles, St. Claire & Madison County areas. We are also happy to serve other areas on request.

Our commercial work includes:

St. Louis City Hall Clock, St. Louis University Campus, St. Francis Xavier College Church, Belleville (IL) Town Square, The Marquette Building (Old Boatman's Bank),The Continental Building, Commerce Bank, Mound City, Forest Park Forever-Jones Visitor Center, Clinton (IL) Public Square Clock, and virtually every major historically significant landmark clock in the St. Louis Metro area, as well as Northeastern Illinois and beyond.
