In 1892, Kintaro Hattori established Seikosha in Tokyo, Japan, where he produced his first wall clocks, marking the beginnings of a company that was to become one of the world's largest and most important manufacturers of timepieces.

This clock features a beautiful mahogany case, with a moulded brass bezel, a pendulum access door on the underside. The mahogany case has been restored, including French polishing to revive the wonderful ebony 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.

This clock houses a quality double brass barrel spring driven Seikosha chiming mechanism. The clock chimes once on the half hour and also every hour to the number of hours. The dial features two holes: The left-hand hole in the dial face is to wind up the clock movement and the right-hand hole is to wind up the chiming movement. This design gives you the option of either having the chiming mechanism enabled or disabled; allowing you to choose whether you want the chiming noise to be heard.

This clock face features an ivory colour tin dial with black Roman numerals and 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. The brass bezel opens on a right-hand hinge to allow you to adjust or set the time. There is a catch to the back of the clock that locks the brass bezel in place and stops it from accidentally swinging open.

Condition Report:
This clock has been sympathetically restored to a high standard 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 tin dial has been repainted. 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. We offer a 2-year UK warranty whereby if there were a mechanical problem with the clock, we would collect it free of charge from you, have it repaired and returned free of charge to you. We also offer a 14-day UK returns policy if you were not happy with it or wanted to return it for any reason. Please also note, this clock has the original mechanism.

Dimensions:
External Diameter = 16"
Painted Dial Diameter = 12"
Depth = 4Ό”
