DATING 1962 - 65
Up for sale is this lovely 8 day clock, with hourly and half hour striking to a coiled gong. There is a lever in the rear of the case that allows the strike function to be turned on and off as desired. This clock was manufactured by the Smiths Clock Company, designated the "LONDON" model, these are listed as being manufactured from 1962 to 1965. The clock has a floating balance escapement so there is no pendulum or beat setting required, simply wind and go. The clock will come with our own 12 month mechanical failure guarantee.
A lovely clock, absolutely original and comes with a key the clock is in full working order, and was serviced by ourselves prior to being offered for sale. The movement parts were cleaned in our ultrasonic tank and re oiled with the correct horological oil. The clock has now been thoroughly tested prior to going on sale. The movement is in very good order, pictures of the movement after servicing and prior to being refitted to the case are shown with the other photos in this listing.
The clock is of a very nice design, a lovely bit of modernistic retro styling that will suit any home, the veneered case is very good with a good shine and the grain of the timber shows through well. In very nice order with just the odd very minor flaw here and there as must only be expected on any clock of this type and age but nothing of any note or detriment, obviously a loved and cared for clock.
Bezel, glass, face and hands are all very good / excellent and of course are original to the clock.
Thats about all I can say, do take a good look at the photographs as these describe this lovely clock as well as I can.
MEASURES 7 1/2" High by 9 1/4" Wide with a depth of 4"
So.. A lovely 8 day striking clock, just serviced, full working order with key, this will look great anywhere and should give years of faithful service.
