The 10 inch square ogee dial is of the conventional regulator type with separate dials for hours, minutes and seconds and the maker’s name engraved in the ogee arch. It retains its original blued steel pointers.
The superb 8-day movement has five boldly turned pillars, dead beat escapement, maintaining power and a large brass pendulum bob with a wooden rod and engraved rating ball. There is also a silvered and engraved beat scale and the clock retains its original five spoke pulley and brass cased weight. The pendulum is suspended from a massive brass back-cock.
Height: 77 inch (196 cm)
