This clock is in excellent used condition throughout and is made from solid Oak. It has been finished in a shade of golden Oak. The clock has been manufacted in France and is around 40 years of age.
The clock has an Urgos weight driven movement installed. It is an 8 day movement and is weight driven on chains. The movement has just been professionally serviced and is in excellent working order.
The movement has Westminster chimes and has the option to silence the chimes. These features are easily achieved by adjusting a small lever that is adjacent to numeral 3 and only visible when the door is opened.
The movement is powered by 3 brass heavy weights in extremely good condition. There maybe a few minor insignificant imperfections here and there but nothing worth mentioning. The dial is in excellent condition... it is a quality heavy duty brass dial not to be compared with the modern day cheap alternatives! Likewise the pendulum is in good condition with the odd imperfection here and there.
Access to the movement is easily achieved by removing either of two side panels which are located in the hood of the clock. This makes for easy access of the movement when removing /replacing of the pendulum or to simply view the movement striking and chiming away!
The clock is extremely well constructed in solid Oak. This is a top quality item, extremely ornate and would enhance any home! It has been panelled on the sides and base front, which also opens.
The dimensions of the clock are approximately:
85"(H) x 19.5"(W) x 11"(D)
where (W)&(D) = widest parts of the base of the clock
This clock is fitted with a German 8-day Hermle triple chime movement in excellent working order. However as I am unsure when it was last serviced I am currently in the process of servicing the movement.
There is an option of Westminster chimes, Whittington chimes and St Michael chimes, all of which can be selected using the lever that locates through the slot in the dial adjacent to numeral 3. The chimes can also be silenced manually using this lever.
The 3 brass heavy weights which power the mechanism are in excellent used condition as is the pendulum and dial. The clock has been very well looked after by the previous owners, as seen by the pictures that have been uploaded. The moon dial is in perfect working order.
The clock case is in excellent condition throughout and is a mix of solid Mahogany and Mahogany finish. I would describe the finish to be a shade of dark Mahogany. It has quite a glossy finish. There is a small mark on the lower side edge of the pendulum door which I have done my best to picture. However this is small and not easily seen. I would estimate the age of the clock to be around 25 years old.
Access to the movement is easily achieved by lifting the hood of the clock upwards and away from the main body of the clock case. This leaves the movement and dial intact making access to the movement very easy. Eg., for pendulum removal and refitting etc etc
The dimensions of the clock are approx:
75"(H) x 18"(W) x 9.5"(D)
This clock looks superb and would look great in any home!
**please note scuff marks and general soiling of the 3 brass weights
**Please note the shakes in the timbers of this clock - above and opposite pictures.
This clock is made of solid timber throughout and is in very good used condition. The timber has been selected to give the clock a distressed look ie., has deliberate shakes in the grain of the wood which are in the timbers throughout the clock. This has made the clock look much older than it actually is which is about 40 - 50 years of age. I have added a couple of pictures trying to outline the 'shakes' in the wood.
I am unsure what the timber is - it could be solid Oak or even solid Elm but I am not 100% sure of this BUT has been constructed from solid timber!
The doors have cast strap hinges and door handles. It looks very ornate and unusual and the first clock I have ever owned with this design feature.
The clock has a Hermle Westminster chime movement installed which is in excellent working order. (The movement has just been professionally serviced). The clock can be silenced at any time by adjusting a small push rod that is located in the waist of the clock. This rod is also used to select the Westminster chimes.
Access to the movement is at the rear of the clock but the pendulum can easily be removed and replaced from the front of the cabinet via the pendulum door.
The mechanism is powered by 3 brass heavy weights which do soiling/scuff marks which I have tried to picture. The pendulum disc is in very good condition. The dial is also in very good condition, but does have some tarnishing/small imperfections due to age. (I have zoomed into the dial to show as much detail as possible.) The dial is quality and heavy duty!
The clock is of French origin , has lots of detail and would look great in most homes.
The dimensions of the clock are approximately:
86"(H) x 19"(W) x 9"(D)
Where (W)&(D) = part of clock that makes contact with the floor.
79"(H) x 16.5"(W) x 9"(D)
This clock is made of solid mahogany and is in excellent condition.
The clock has a German Hermle triple chime movement fitted in excellent working with very little wear and tear. I am unsure of the history of the clock and therefore when it was last serviced so will be happy to undertake a service if the new owner prefers this?
The 3 brass heavy weights are in excellent used condition - all very clean and presentable!
The hood of the clock is easily removed by sliding it forwards (please see picture with hood removed). This makes easy access to the movement should it ever be knocked out of beat or for more simpler tasks such as removing and replacing of the pendulum.
This is a beautiful clock which would enhance any home and the Buyer will not be disappointed. I would estimate the age of the clock to be around 25 - 30 yrs.
The dimensions of the clock are approximately:
70.5"(H) x 15.75"(W) x 9"(D)

This clock is in excellent used condition. There is a small imperfection on the top of the bottom cornice moulding which I have done my best to highlight. Please see the picture that has been uploaded. Other than this, apart from a very minor imperfections which are hardly worth mentioning, it is in lovely condition. As seen by the pictures the clock has been very well cared for by the previous owner. I would describe the finish to be a medium brownish shade of Mahogany (please see parts of the clock that have been zoomed into for a more accurate idea of colour shade. The clock is made from mainly solid Mahogany throughout with just the odd veneer here and there.
The movement has just been professionally serviced and is in excellent working order. There is a choice of Westminster, St Michael or Whittington chimes which can be selected by the adjustment of a small lever that locates through a slot in the front of the dial. The clock can also be silenced using this lever.
The clock also comes with a fully functioning moving moon phase dial(heavy duty quality dial) which is made from solid brass and is in excellent condition.
The mechanism is powered by 3 brass heavy weights. The brass weight shells are in very good and extremely presentable condition which probably means that the previous owner used gloves when rewinding the clock over the years.
Access to the movement is easily achieved by pulling the hood of the clock forward and away from the main body of the clock case. This leaves the movement and dial intact for easy access to the pendulum and the rest of the mechanism.
This is beautiful piece of furniture which would enhance any home.
Dimensions of clock are approx:
79.25"(H) 17.25"(W) x 9"(D)
Small mark on lower moulding
This clock is made from solid Oak throughout and is in excellent used condition. There is a small scratch on the lower moulding which I have attempted to picture. This is not easily seen. I would describe the finish to be a shade of Golden Oak.
The clock has an Urgos Westminster chime movement installed which has just been professionally serviced so in excellent working condition. There is an option to silence the chimes at night or any other time by adjusting a small lever located to next to numeral 3. This lever is also used to select the Westminster chimes.
The mechanism is powered by 3 brass heavy weights in very good condition. There is the small imperfection here and there but hardly worth mentioning. The clock has been very well looked after by its previous owner. Like wise the brass pendulum disc is also in very god condition.
The brass dial is also in good condition. I have tried to take a few close up pictures of the dial especially the spandrels in the arch section of the dial which appear to be a slightly different shade of brass finish? I am unsure of the history of this clock hence the reason why I have zoomed into the dial to outline this slight variation in colour. The arch also has some light scuff marks but the spandrels have masked some of this off making these imperfections hard to see in certain lights. These could be the original brass, but I am not sure. I can say that the dial is super heavy duty and is definitely in keeping with a clock that is over 40 years of age. It looks much older than it actually is!
Access to the movement is via either of two removable side panels that are located in the hood of the clock. This makes for easy access of the movement for pendulum removal/replacement or perhaps to see the movement striking and chiming away.
All the doors (including the bottom door) are held firmly closed under lock and key.
This clock looks fantastic and would enhance any home! The dimensions of the clock are approximately:
82"(H) x 20"(W) x 10.5"(D)
where (H)&(W) = widest parts of the base of the clock.
