Edward Dent made the ships chronometer which accompanied Charles Darwin on the H.M.S Beagle in 1831 and of course built the great clock of Westminster (or ‘Big Ben’ as it’s known). This clock is also signed to the lower back plate and has the number 866 to the rear of the dial. All ‘white’ bevelled glass and a cleverly hinged glazed rear door. Edward Dent had workshops in Paris for the supply of the carriage clocks which he sold in his prestigious London establishments. Circa 1860-70.
