All clocks I sell have been fully overhauled by me personally and are fully guaranteed for one year.

Postmans Alarm Clock


This is a classic Black Forest timepiece alarm clock, with a turned wooden bezel made up of 8 pieces, and is almost undamaged (there is a small nick in the joint at 9.00)

Both the side doors are intact and the joints of the main case are firm.

It has a glass dial (painted on the reverse as you would expect) and comes with replacement weights and a new pendulum.

All parts are held together in the original manner with taper pins (not with steel angle brackets) though the back has additional screws into the top & bottom wooden 'plates' for safety.

Maximum dimensions: wooden bezel 280mm diameter, dial 175mm diameter, depth (from back of case to front of centre arbor)180mm drop required from dial centre to floor 1975mm

Tableau Comtoise clock


This is a French wall clock which shares a peculiarity with French longcase clocks in that it strikes the hours twice - once at the hour and again a couple of minutes later. In fact the movements are almost identical - with only the gear ratios (to allow for a shorter pendulum) and the motive power being different.

It is a highly decorative clock, with mother-to-pearl floral inlay in dark wood panels in the pale wood ground, all covered by glazing inside the ebonised outer bezel.

This makes the front quite heavy, which normally presents a problem for the hinges at the top of the front as there is generally only one prop to hold it open for winding - resulting in quite a twist. However this clock has one on each side so the hinges are not put under strain.

The dial on this clock is the better quality glass one, painted on the reverse and held to a metal backing plate by the hole-grommets.

Maximum dimensions: 620mm high by 490mm wide by 130mm deep, dial
is 230 mm diameter

Drop-dial clock


Here I am selling a small drop-dial clock with a German movement of good quality but unidentified maker.

The 'drop' is hinged on the right side with a latch on the left, swinging down in front of the back board (which continues to level with the bottom of the drop) to reveal the pendulum.

It has a nice clear dial, with good colour to the wood.

A very attractive little clock...

Maximum dimensions: wooden bezel is 240mm diameter, the 'drop' below it is 23mm,it is 100mm deep, and the dial is 170mm diameter.

Dial clock by R Jowes


This is a standard Office Dial clock with a fusee movement of good quality.

The case seems to have been re-finished, and I have not checked on the authenticity of the GWR or the name on the dial.

The dial has been re-painted for me - with nothing added or removed - after re-riveting two of the dial feet.

The movement is resonably modern as fusee movements go, so should give a lifetime or two of good service!

Maximum dimensions: 330mm high by 330mm wide by 135mm deep, dial is 240mm diameter

Slim brass-cased Bulkhead Clock


This clock is one for a connoisseur...

The outside does not give much away, being a simple brass drum with some turned grooves on the side and a plain flat, unsigned cream dial with a small subsidiary seconds dial. The only hint is the very small winding hole...

The movement has, as one would expect, a platform escapement and this is where it starts to get interesting. It is a very early English Lever platform, with the outer end of the hairspring pinned into a separate cock, rather than an extension of the balance cock. The platform plate goes along the width of the clock plates, rather than across the depth of them. The regulator index is connected to lever pivoted at centre of dial & with a pin projecting into a sector slot in the top of dial (hidden by bezel when it is closed)

It has an 8-day movement, sadly also unsigned. The barrel ratchet wheel is exceptionally finely cut with over 50 teeth; just one visible example of the quality of the 5-crossing wheel-work

The front glass is undamaged, 4.5mm thick with a well bevelled edge, and the front bezel has a spring catch operated by the button on the left side

It comes complete with the original double axe-head style winding key, with the square hole still in good condition

It is almost identical to another one I look after, which is signed Parkinson
& Frodsham. I estimate the date of the clock as C.1830.

As with all my clocks, it is fully overhauled and guaranteed

DIMENSIONS - dial diameter: 6” or 152mm (5 1/4” or 133mm chapter ring),
case diameter: 7” or 178mm, case depth: 2” or 51mm.

Small Fusee Dial Clock by French & Son of London


This is a particularly nice example of a small dial clock, with a slightly convex enamel dial signed French & Son / London.

It has a late model of fusee movement, with plain pillars screwed at both ends. The back plate is stamped 6472 / LONDON just to the right of the bottom left pillar.

The movement is secured in the case by two steel straps running vertically behind the dial, not to the dial plate itself so that the enamel will not get damaged.

There is a slight chip to the bevelled edge of the 4mm-thick front glass (at about 9 minutes past), and there has been some repair-work to the case - but what would you expect?

As with all my clocks, it is fully overhauled and guaranteed

DIMENSIONS - case diameter: 11 1/4” Case depth: 5” (to the front of the glass), dial plate diameter: 7 3/4” chapter ring: 6 5/8”

Ship's Radio Room Clock


This clock has a rather unusual dial. It is from a ship's radio room. The sectors cross-hatched in red and green are there to remind the operators to keep radio silence and listen out for distress signals on 500kHz and 2182kHz respectively. This was a system introduced after the sinking of the Titanic, and initially only had the 500kHz frequency, with the 2182kHz frequency being added later. I suspect this clock may not have been the main radio-room one, as that sould have had a seconds hand, which has never been the case with this model. It is made by S Marti of France, and was made some time after 1931. (The 500kHz frequency is no longer monitored)

The visible part of the dial is 3.5" diameter, with the inside of the minute tramline at 3.1".

Maximum dimensions: Diameter of the back flange 4.9", Aproximately 1.7" deep

Marpro bulkhead Clock


This This is, I think, the smallest bulkhead clock I have had through my hands... The chapter zone on the dial is only 70mm diameter, with the sight ring at 75mm, and the flange at the back of the case is 113 mm

The dial (with the movement fixed to it) is attached to the back of the bezel which is hinged onto the bowl of the case. The back of the case is numbered 1756.

The movement cover is stamped Smiths Clocks & Watches Ltd, there is a lable on the inside of the back of the case saying MARTON PRODUCTS / 61A De Beauvoir Road / London N1, and the dial is 'signed' Marpro above the centre and 8 DAY / T. MORRIS / THE QUAY / LYMINGTON below the centre - Smiths made the clock, Marton were the wholesalers and Morris the retailer I think!

Maximum dimensions: Diameter of the back flange 113mm, Aproximately 45mm deep

Striking Vienna Regulator


This is an excellent Vienna Regulator with half-hour strike by Gustav Becker - one of the big names for this type of clock.

It has a 2-piece dial with a recessed centre, both parts being enamelled; and comes with original weights, pendulum & winding key.
As with the vast majority of Vienna Regulators, the pendulum has a wooden rod, ensuring almost zero variation in rate due to temperature or humidity changes.

Maximum dimensions: Height ~ 41" (the top finial being ~ 10" above the hanging plate), Width 17 3/4", depth 7"

Wooden clock with verge escapement


This is a bit of fun really.

It is a reproduction of the sort of clock that was produced many years ago - though they would mostly have been made of metal.
The rate at which it runs is controlled by the weights on the oscillating arm (or 'foliot') at the top - the further out they are the slower it runs. It ticks about 40 times a minute - very slowly! Even so it needs a 6'6" drop for the line & weight in order to run for a full 24 hours. This means the dial centre needs to be at 7' above the floor, with a ceiling height of not less than 7'9" (2.36m). It is probably designed to be wound twice a day, with the dial at face height.
The back of the back bard is stamped HELO / No Jewels / West Germany / unadjusted - which I think must be a bit of bureaucracy gone mad!

Maximum dimensions: Dial diameter ~ 175mm, back plate 410mm

"Sestrel" Bulkhead Clock


Here we have a typical brass-cased bulkhead clock with a platform escapement.
It has an Elliott Clocks movement, serial number 12835, which I think means it was made in 1935
Because Elliotts put low quality 7 jewel platform escapements on their clocks I have replaced the platform with a high quality 11 jewel one, and it runs beautifully.
There is some minor scratching to the dial around the winding hole & out to the VII, and the lacquer on the body of the case is showing some signs of it's age, but otherwise it is in good condition, undented, and with no chips to the glass, and with a positive"snap" when you close the front bezel.

Maximum dimensions: Rear Flange 146mm (5.75") diameter, dial 103mm (4") diameter, depth 67.5mm (2.65")

Octagonal Wall Clock


This beautiful clock has a wooden case with a mahogany veneer, inlaid with brass, on a pine carcase.
The front bezel does open, so you could adjust the time shown from the front, but since you have to wind it from the back and there is a hand-set knob there as well, I would recommend adjusting the time from the back.
It has a convex brass dial with engine-turned centre and a chapter ring of minute lines (replaced with slim triangles at the 1/4-hrs and bolder lines at other hours) and Arabic hour numbers.
The movement is a standard French drum movement with a lever platform escapement, unsigned, stamped FRANCE just to the left of the ratchet click, and with the normal arrow for the hand-set direction.

Maximum dimensions: Dial diameter 80mm, height 210mm, width 240mm (including the lion's heads), and depth 90mm

Modern Zaanse Dutch Clock


This is a modern 'Zaanse' style clock with standard English/European striking, not Dutch striking. The dial has a chapter ring with a colonnaded tramline for the minutes, Roman hour numbers and an inner (round) tramline also marking in minutes (not in quarter-hours as one might expect).
For it's full 29.5hr run-time the dial centre needs to be 89" (~2.25m) above ground level, with the ceiling a further 9" (~ 23cm) above this... However, it only needs about a 6" drop for the line & weight in order to run for 24 hours. This means the dial centre needs to be at about 6'3" above the floor, with a ceiling height of not less than 7' (2.14m); so if you are prepared to wind it at almost exactly the same time every day the dial can be just above face level, if not you will definitely need to look up at it, or wind it twice a day!

Maximum dimensions: Dial diameter ~ 85mm, back board of clock 455mm high x 190mm wide, max depth 135mm

English Dial Clock with Ebonised case


This is a typical English Timepiece Dial Clock in an ebonised case. These clocks are also often referred to as school clocks, office clocks, & railway clocks, but this one has never had anything to do with a railway! The dial is 12" diameter, with a chapter ring of 11" outside diameter. The wooden (ebonised) bezel is approximately 15¾" diameter
It has a typical 8-day fusee movement of good Victorian quality, which will outlive the grand-children of anyone alive today (provided it is suitably maintained).
The case has 2 latched side doors and a locking bottom door, and this one has the bezel retained on the box by three wooden pegs, rather than the more common four pegs. It comes with (I believe) the original fusee-style winding key which still has some of the black paint it was covered in to make it match the clock. Despite the use it will have had it is still a good fit on the winding square.

Maximum dimensions: Outside diameter ~ 15¾", depth 6"

Twin Fusee Dial Clock By Winterhalder & Hofmeier


These clocks are also often referred to as school clocks, office clocks, & railway clocks, but this one has never had anything to do with a railway! This example is by Wilterhalder & Hofmeier, a company known for making high quality clocks. The dial is 12¾" diameter, with a chapter ring of 11½" outside diameter. The wooden bezel is 415mm (approximately 16 5/16") diameter
It has an 8-day twin fusee movement of good quality, which will outlive the grand-children of anyone alive today (provided it is suitably maintained); and strikes on a coiled gong mounted on the back board of the case.
The case is made of wallnut I think, & has 2 side doors and a bottom door, all latched, with the bezel retained on the box by the normal four pegs. It comes with a fusee-style winding key.

Maximum dimensions: Outside diameter 415mm, depth 150mm

Morbier or Comtoise French Long pendulum Bracket Clock


This is a typical Morbier clock designed to sit on a bracket on the wall. They can also be slotted into a wooden case, but this one is 'uncased'. These clocks are also often referred to as Comtoise clocks, a name taken from the district of Franche-Comté where the town of Morbier is.
The dial is 210mm diameter, with a chapter ring of 200mm outside diameter. The movement is entirely enclosed by metal top, bottom, dial & side doors and a wooden back on which the gong is mounted.
It has a typical later Morbier movement with an anchor escapement.
As with all these clocks the movement is back-to-front compared to an English movement, with the pendulum at the front, the strike train on the right and the time train on the left. Another peculiarity is that they strike once at the half hour and the relevant number at the hour, but this is repeated about 3 minutes later - to give you a second chance to count the blows! The hour strike can also be repeated at will by pulling a repeat cord.
It comes complete with a wooden bracket with gold-painted metal brackets for the movement to sit on and of course the typical French longcase pendulum with a rod in 3 pieces loosely riveted together...

Maximum dimensions of movement box: Height 265mm, Width 260mm depth 190mm Minimum height of bottom of movement box above the floor for an 8-day run 1.82m or just under 6' or 5'5" for a bare 7 days
