Nigel Waller
Nigel Waller designed and manufactured his first Thomas Kent Clock in 1980 and in the intervening years a great deal has been learned, discovered, and understood about what makes a truly great clock. Like all the best designers, Nigel believes exploring and evaluating the designs of the past is
an important part of the design process and over the years trawling the flea markets, industrial salvage yards and vintage stores of the world he has amassed a comprehensive collection of early and mid-twentieth century timepieces that spans large industrial clocks to tiny eastern European watch faces. Often these provide the early 
inspiration for a range but ideas can spring from anywhere - walks along the British coastline or in the Yorkshire Dales might suggest a particular material or colour palette; the sights, sounds and cultures experienced around the world might influence the development of another collection.
