Description:
This clock houses a quality single brass barrel spring driven Anglo Swiss Admiral timepiece mechanism. The Anglo Swiss clock company was a prominent clock maker and jeweler in Calcutta, colonial India, during the early 20th Century. Established in 1909, they produced a large number of reliable and good quality timepieces, supplying both the domestic market and the British Empire.

This clock features a beautiful mahogany case, with a moulded brass bezel, a pendulum access door on the underside and a mechanism-viewing door on the left-hand side that allows you to view the mechanism whilst in operation. The mahogany case has been restored, including polishing to revive the wonderful colour and patination of the grain in the timber. On the back of the clock is a bracket to attach the clock to the wall.
The movement has been restored and serviced and is now in good mechanical order, ensuring this clock is reliable and keeps good time. The pendulum, which is attached to the mechanism by accessing the clock from the door below, can be adjusted in length to allow you to regulate the clock speed. The clock comes with a key, which is used to wind the mechanism through the centre of the face dial.

This clock face features the original ivory colour dial with black Arabic numbering and an elegant shaped hour and minute hand. A hinged solid brass bezel houses the glass face that protects the tin dial and face whilst in operation. There is a catch to the back of the clock that locks the brass bezel in place and stops it from accidentally swinging open. This clock features brass levelling lugs and pins which are attached to each side of the clock.

Condition Report:
This clock has been sympathetically restored and is now in good working order. Nominal old use marks to the case and tin dial but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The mahogany case is in good condition. The mahogany case has been re-polished; the painted tin dial is in original condition. The brass-hinged bezel is in good working order, with some play to the hinge. The bezel-locking latch is present and working and prevents the bezel from opening. The mechanism is original; it has been cleaned and serviced and is in good working order, keeping good time.

External Diameter = 16"
Painted Dial Diameter = 12"
