Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The signed and engraved silvered dial has Roman numerals, subsidiary seconds and 8-day winding indicator. The finely tapering blued steel hands appear to be original. It is mounted on gimbals within the case and the cover to the winding square is sprung.
The well patinated three tier mahogany box with brass corners has an applied rectangular ivory label which bears the maker’s name and the number of the chronometer.
* Herbert Blockley is listed on page 79 of Brian Loomes’s Clockmakers of the World 21st century edition as working as successor to Lund and Blockley at 41 Duke Street, St James’s from the 1890’s until 1902.
