Description

Here we have for sale a good quality antique 15.5" mahogany railway station chiming / striker wall clock, circa 1930, which has been lovingly restored to its former glory and is now in good working order. This clock houses a quality twin brass barrel spring driven Anglo Swiss chiming 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. The home offices and factory of the company were at Quartier de I’lndustric, Soleure, Switzerland. (Source: Bengal and Assam, Behar and Orissa. Their History, People, Commerce, and Industrial Resources – Compiled by Somerset Playne FRGS, assisted by J.W. Bond. Edited by Arnold Wright – 1917).

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 fully restored, including French 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 clock chimes once on the half hour and also every hour to the number of hours. 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 options to either have 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 Arabic 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:
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 French polished by hand, and the tin dial has been replaced at some point in the past. 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.
