The double fusee pull repeat movement retains its original verge escapement and has a beautifully engraved back plate . It strikes the hours on a bell and strike silent facility in the arch. Unusually the clock has a rise and fail mechanism which allows the clock to be finely regulated by a subsidiary dial in the arch . The quality is up to London's highest standards
The inverted bell top case has canted corners to the edges and glazed sides and doors . It is surmounted by a brass carrying handle
The 8 inch arched silvered brass chapter ring and spandrel dial has a beautifully matted centre with the makers name engraved on a cartouche in the arching .
