Mechanical – eight-day timepiece – four chime bars – quarter/half-hour/three-quarter and full-hour strike on chime bars.
On offer is a beautiful and robust, fully restored and hence in very good condition, Smiths (Clocks and Watches) mantel clock/table clock from the period 1955/1960, with a very well-maintained Westminster floating balance movement.
You will hear four chime bars which sound very beautiful, with a strike on the quarter-past, strike on the half hour, strike on the quarter-to, and a strike on the full hour, and in addition the full strikes on the full hour.
You can also turn the striking mechanism off, by using the so-called comb, which you can see in photo 17 and 18.
In 1956, Smiths Clocks and Watches first started offering clocks with the new "floating balance" movement, which was invented by Hettich in Germany, and licensed by Smiths.
As you can see in the photos, the floating balance movement is absolutely in good condition, and it runs very nicely.
Due to the floating balance, you can feel free to lift and/or move the clock; the movement will just keep running.
In clocks with an anchor, the movement is known to stop at times, when lifted or moved.
The full strikes on the chime bars sounds very lovely, too, but if desired, the striking mechanism can also be turned off by means of the button on the left of the dial, namely the Chime and Silence button.
Naturally, the original winding key for this clock will be included.
If you want a gorgeous clock with an absolutely beautiful, well-running Westminster movement and very lovely sounding chime bars, then this is the ideal clock for you.
Height: 24 cm.
Width: 29 cm
Depth: 13 cm
This beautiful Smiths clock with Westminster movement will be packaged with great care and shipped by PostNL. The Netherlands.
