Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The 2-day movement has a split compensated balance of standard pattern, gold hands, and an unusual crescent shaped up and down indicator mounted on the dial between III. It bears a number of similarities to movements signed Parkinson and Frodsham from the early period.
Inside the lid there is an original 19th century repair label signed E. Dent and Co.
Date: circa 1830
Height: 6 ¾ in (17 cm)
Width: 6 ½ in (16.5 cm)
Depth: 6 ½ in (16.5 cm)
* William Reid is listed on page 647 of Brian Loomes’s ‘Clockmakers of the World’ as working in Ball Alley, circa 1830. He is also recorded on page 227 of Tony Mercer’s ‘Chronometer Makers of the World’ where other examples of his work are cited.
Small early chronometers of this quality and originality are increasingly rare and hard to find.
