Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The eight-day, double fusee movement strikes the hours on a bell with a pull repeat. The round eight-inch convex dial has black Roman numerals, blued steel ‘moon’ hands and is signed by the maker ‘W. Simpson, Kennington'. The rear of the dial is covered in the most wonderful history of repairs, along with what appears to be a date of manufacture as signed by Simpson, all in varying styles of script from the scribbled to the most beautiful hand-writing. Included are dates for the years 1839, 1847 and 1852.
William Simpson is recorded as first working in London in the late 18th century having been made a Freeman of the Clockmaker’s Company in 1781, before continuing into the early-to-mid 1800’s.
