The original and extremely fine, silvered platform and escapement is large and has a compensated balance wheel. The hourly gong strike is mellow and has the one strike for the half hour.

Petite Sonnerie – Carriage Clock

A fine, quarter chiming or 'petite sonnerie' carriage clock by 'Drocourt' for J.W.Benson.

The movement strikes the hours and quarters with the addition of push repeat. The clock has the Drocourt stamp on the back plate and the Drocourt Oval on the reverse of the dial. Alfred and Pierre Drocourt were both superb clockmakers, they had a factory in Saint-Nicolas-d'Ailermont, which was regarded as the most important town for carriage clock manufacturing. The majority of their clocks would go to their Paris premises and dispersed amongst the world's top retailers of that time. They exhibited at the major exhibitions winning a bronze medal at Paris 1867, the Silver at Paris 1878 and the gold at Paris in 1889. The son, Alfred, succeeded his father Pierre sometime in the 1870's. The clock is numbered 18672 which puts the date to circa 1880-90. To find a 'petite sonnerie' by J.W.Benson and Drocourt in this condition is quite rare.  A truly wonderful clock with a very nice tone to the gongs.  Supplied with an original Morroco leather covered case. Please note we have two near identical J.W.Benson petite Sonnerie's !

Exceptional Giant Carriage Clock – J.W.Benson

A particularly elegant example of a giant carriage clock, made by Drocourt and retailed through J.W. Benson circa 1900. It is rare to come across a giant carriage of such fine quality, and this timepiece is in excellent condition with a beautiful gilt finish. The original enamelled dial is signed J.W. Benson, Ludgate Hill, London, with large Roman numerals and outer minutes of typical Drocourt style. The movement is stamped DROCOURT, hidden between the plates and the Oval logo to the rear. As with all of our clocks, it has been cleaned and restored, and the exceptional condition of the movement can be seen through the bevelled glass panels, along with the beautiful large top quality platform escapement, J.W. Benson had a thriving business with Alfred Drocourt throughout the late Victorian period and into the Edwardian period, and this clock is one of the best examples we have seen from this partnership. Interestingly the springs on this clock are signed A.D 12/02, the signing of clock springs was usually carried out by the person who assembled it. Alfred Drocourt would have enjoyed assembling this ‘Giant’ in 1902!

Rare Paul Garnier Mantel Clock

A fine Rosewood mantel clock by the well know makers Paul Garnier and Henry Marc. It’s difficult to explain why this clock is so rare, but we will try. Paul Garnier invented a type of escapement for his clocks which allowed the clocks to be pendulum free. This escapement is called the Chaff Cutter, two plane escapement and was in use on most of the early carriage clocks he made. There are very few clocks which have survived with the Chaff Cutter intact. What’s lovely about this particular clock is the small viewing glass to the top, essentially showing off his invention. The 'blanc roulant' was supplied to P.G. by Henry Marc. A blanc roulant is a movement sold to a clockmaker to finish with his or her escapement of choice. The clock is quite sall and constructed of Rosewood with fine boxwood inlays and marquetry work. The dial is a mellowed gold colour and the hands are the original and quite unique. A very rare and attractive clock. Quite possibly 1830 to 1850.

Miniature Timepiece with Original Case

SOLD

Omega Seamaster 300 – 1966

A very good example of the classic dive watch. The Seamaster 300 by Omega became a true 'tool' watch of the Special forces, the Royal Navy, Deep sea workers and civilians alike. The large triangle at 12 on these 66 models are quite rare and in our opinion the non date, large triangle, gilt is the best combination. The original bakelite bezel is not perfect but as you would expect on these 50+year watches. The case is also unpolished with 'dings' here and there but 100% original, even the crystal is the original with small logo to the center. The dial had very poorly applied Radium lume which was common with these and we had a lume expert apply in the correct way 'puffy' and use 'fast fade' to help with the original look. The watch also comes with the Extract from the Archives of Omega showing it was sold in the UK on October 3, 1966, these are important to have with the 60's Seamasters and cost around £100!  It will be supplied with a NATO strap in Cream and black stripe which we feel works well with it and also a grey military style NATO as well as the original S/Steel Omega strap.  If you are looking for a daily wearer, a watch that already has patina and character and not a watch to hide away in a safe, this might just be the perfect watch!

TREE Wall Clock

This small 'dial' or 'school' clock as they a fondly known, has a ten-inch dial signed by the clockmaker Tree of 121 Great Dover Street, London. The clock has undergone a complete 'strip down' clean, service and rebushing etc (see pictures) and carries our 24 month guarantee. The original dial has been carefully restored and the Mahogany case has been cleaned, waxed. The curved lower door is held with a lock and key, the side door is held with a simple latch. The convex glass over dial helps reduce reflections. There are three clockmakers working in London under the name of Tree. Charles 1881, James 1851-81 and Alfred 1869. It is difficult to be exact with such close dating and they are most likely all related, we would take an educated guess at James Tree as he worked for the longest period known and this clock dates to around 1880, but of course it could be Charles. The clock or timepiece is 'Fusee' and has a substantial and high quality movement with heavy lead filled, brass faced pendulum bob. A great little clock !
We used Watch and Clockmakers of the world Vol2 for the research.

Daniel Catlin of Lynn

This is perhaps the smallest 8 day Longcase with an arched top we have ever had in the 40+ years of having our shop. They really do not come along very often, especially with a full brass dial with arch and Strike - silent function. The clock has just been fully overhauled. This involved a complete movement restoration, with new bushes and pivot polishing throughout. The dial was completely dismantled and had the Silvering restored as well as brightening the brass. All parts carefully laquered and preserved. The solid Oak case has a wonderful original patina you only get with years of hand waxing. Daniel Catlin of Lynn was working around the late 18th Century and this clock was most likely made around 1780. This clock is very reasonably priced so delivery out of our 20 mile radius of the shop will be a little extra, sorry.

Benjamin Maud London

Every now then a longcase takes my breath away! This longcase by Benjamin Maud of London has 'perhaps' the very best dial layout we have seen.

The quality and design is absolutely the best. The dial would have been produced and engraved for the Clockmaker Mr Benjamin Maud by equally skilled dial makers and gravers. The 8 day duration, Bell striking movement features the silent option. It has a lovely pair of brass cased weights and brass pendulum Bob as you would expect. The cabinet is a mellowed 'toffee' mahogany with good grain - flame to the trunk door with canted fluted columns and brass reeding. Benjamin Maud is recorded as freed of the The Clockmakers Company in the 1780's. The clock can be delivered locally and set up with a 20mile radius of the shop. If you live further afield we will have to charge a delivery fee as the clock is already very reasonably priced ! Sold with a full 2 year guarantee.
