Description

A Stunning 19th century Gustav Becker Vienna double weight wall clock.
It is not often we find a Gustav Becker clock in such a superb condition and we felt it was about time that one received the "full" treatment.
The undamaged case has no dents, knocks or scrapes and has been fully restored back to its original condition. I have carefully removed every layer of dust, dirt and grime to reveal its original shellac finish and it look splendid.
The double weight Gustav Becker movement has been fully overhauled by me personally and has been polished using an age old technique with chalk. It gives the brass a finish that cannot be replicated with modern abrasive pastes and a deep highly polished lustre to the parts. All bearing, pivots and pinions have been repaired or polished and the clock now has a wonderful positive action to its highly polished pendulum.
The polished brass weights are now suspended on the correct natural gut lines and look well against the veneered backboard.
With over twenty years experience in restoring and conserving clocks and working on some of the finest and complicated clocks for a select group of the best antique clock dealers in the country, We are proud to say that we are now the exclusive restoration company for Steam Mill Clocks.
As well as this, Overton Clocks has now decided to offer our customers the opportunity to purchase fine antique clocks that have been personally selected for their unique or special features. Each clock has been expertly restored to the highest of standards by myself. Overton clocks ensures peace of mind in your investment, by personally offering three years warranty on all of our timepieces.
I am a master clockmaker, a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers and a member of the British watch and clockmakers guild. Overton Clocks is a traditional clock shop based in the heart of Chesterfield on two floors hosting a showroom and in-house fully equipped workshop.
