Eward’s life

Eward Ruyter completed a four-year course to become a clockmaker in Schoonhoven in the Netherlands. He finished this course after a period of internship in 1991.

After his military service, he began working with a renowned clockmaker in Antwerp. He learned all the tricks of the trade and that passion has grown ever since.

In August 1996, he moved to Tongeren to start his own business. After nine months of reconstructing, his shop, the studio and the private residence were ready for use.

The business started the 19th of April 1997.

It has grown to be a flourishing business that is also visited by people from outside the province of Limburg.

Eward Ruyter’s spare time is filled with some of his other passions, such as playing music, cooking and of course, his wife Hélène and his three children Nils, Lisa and Yannick.
