This clock is in excellent condition throughout - to be honest like new... very well looked after by the previous owner as seen by the pictures that have been uploaded. If you require more pictures please do ask. The clock is constructed from a mix of solid Mahogany and Mahogany finish. I would say that it has been finished in a shade of dark Mahogany. I would estimate the age to be around 15 -20 years.
The clock has an Hermle Bim Bam strike movement installed in excellent working order. The movement strikes out the number of hours and strikes once on the half hour on a gong. It is 8 day and weight driven on chains and has two heavy brass weights to power the mechanism both of which are in excellent condition. The dial is also in exc condition.
By design the clock does not have a silencing device. However if you are interested in the clock and would prefer a silencing device I will happily fit one free of charge.
The hood of the clock slides forward and away from the main body of the clock cabinet to make easy access the movement. This is very handy for ease of pendulum removal and replacement etc.
The dimensions of the clock are approx:
71"(H) x 13.5"(W) x 9.25"(D)
Hopefully you will be able to see the light scratch in the picture
The clock is made mainly from solid Mahogany throughout and is in very good used condition. It has the the odd age related mark here and there but nothing significant. There is a very superficial scratch on the side of the hood that i have tried to picture. This is not easily seen. In some lights it cannot be seen at all! However as I am honest seller I feel that it is important to mention all the flaws. As seen by the pictures the clock has been very well cared for by the previous owner. I would describe the clock to be a shade of medium Mahogany - please study pictures closely as flash photography can be very deceiving. I estimate the age to be about 35 - 40 yrs old..
The clock has an Hermle Westminster chime movement installed. The movement has just been professionally serviced and so is in excellent working order. Unlike some of the larger longcase clocks, the chimes are not too loud and therefore more tolerable eg., especially when watching your favourite TV programme! However the chimes can be cancelled at any time by adjusting a push rod that is located in the waist of the clock.
The clock is 8-day and is weight driven on chains. The 3 brass weights are soiled and do have scuff marks. However the worst of these imperfections can be hidden by correctly positioning the weights on the chains.
The brass dial is in vgc as is the pendulum disc but does have some tarnishing.
Access to the movement is via the rear of the clock.
The dimensions of the clock are approximately:
70.5"(H) x 14.75"(W) x 9"(D)
