Jot Rijks, born in the Netherlands, is the owner of Dutch Antiques and is a qualified clockmaker. Jot completed his four-year full time study at the Christiaan Huygens School in Rotterdam, the Netherlands 25 years ago. He worked at Garrad's The Crown Jeweler’s in London, England, and also at Thomson Time Centre in Nashville, United States. Back in the Netherlands he started his own business in the repair and restoration of antiques clocks. In 1996 he began supplying the trade and attended most of the important clock fair in Europe and the USA. In 2001 Jot and his family migrated to Perth, Western Australia, where in 2003 he took over an existing clock shop at 220 Stirling Highway, Claremont, WA and joined the Watch and Clockmakers of Australia
In Claremont the shop has a wide range of antique clocks for sale and Jot carries out his own repair/ restoration work at his fully equipped workshop on clocks as well as barometers. The shop also has a variety of antique furniture and decorative items on show, which has always been a passion of Jot's, especially French country style dining tables and side tables which are always in high demand.
Over the years Jot has written several articles and booklets about his interest in Antiques clocks.
