Origin: English

Fabulous English Dial Clock in excellent condition, with a London made solid light Oak case, and a quality Coventry made 8-day pendulum movement by Empire. (Empire was a 1924 Trading Name of the 'English Clock and Watch Manufacturers Ltd' [ECWM], formed after the merger of premium clock makers H.W.Williamson Ltd of Coventry, and London based makers Grimshaw, Baxter and J.J Elliott Ltd in Oct 1921. The Empire trade name came into being following the 1924 British Empire Exhibition). The clock was serviced in June 2020, (so in fine working order), and comes with an Antiquitatum guarantee.

The clocks Oak roundhead is in pristine condition, with its box case attached to the rear housing the movement. The clean 12-inch white dial with black Roman numerals and an original pair of blued steel hands being of an Empire designed Spade type, secured with a pinned collet. The dial is then protected by a hinged glazed frontage with a moulded brass bezel. At the base of the box case is a hinged turn catch inspection door containing a rectangular ‘cut out’ space which was inserted sometime after it left the Coventry works.

The clock has a seldom seen Mk 1, Model 150, Empire single Going barrel 8-day pendulum driven movement. A fine piece of timepiece engineering, with the lacquered finished brass backplate showing the model number along with the pre-1929 Empire logo and the legend “Made in England.” The clock also still carries its original and scarce blued steel cylindrical pendulum bob secured in its unique works applied suspension clip “designed to minimise the risk of damage in transit and setting up.”

A clean, well-proportioned clock of full English clockmaking heritage.
