Seller: vintagewatchstores (2.738) 100%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 361833513861 A fine and unusual, English late 17th century, 30-hour hooded wall clock movement by Henry Simock of Daventry in a later solid mahogany case. The clock movement has been fully overhauled and comes with a weight and pendulum. The pictures are brighter in most circumstances than the clock case or movement shows. THE DIAL: 100% mint, the clock dial measures 8.5 inches square. The solid brass dial is original to the movement. The dial with engraved single line border and winged cherub spandrels to the corners. The narrow silvered 1.5 inch wide chapter-ring with Roman numerals for the hours and Arabics for the minute around the outside edge, and fleur-de-lys half-hour markers. The dial with nicely made blued and fretted steel hand in fine order. The engraved dial centre, full of tulips and signed in 3rd period lantern clock style, Henry Simcock, Daventree; the single iron hand well carved and fettled and of substantial size; THE MOVEMENT : 100% mint, with a 30-hour striking movement. The clock runs for a full 30-hour between windings and strikes the hours on a large bell. This is a very substantial and unusual movement with four pillars riveted to the top plate and held in place by nuts to the lower plate. The clock movement with the striking arbors with nice early bun collets. The movement of high quality with superb carved and fettled hammer stop and original wheel-work to the plates. The clock is rope driven, with a brass pulley, with anchor escapement and countwheel strike on a large bell. THE CASE : 100%, the 20th centruy solid mahogany case with caddy top, stands 95 cm high. The hood with opening door which is glazed to the front. The hood with caddy top and small acorn finials. The case with hole to the rear back-board for a large clout nail to support the clock on a wall. I think the appearance of the clock would be improved if the lower side pieces were removed. THE WEIGHT & PENDULUM: 100% mint, the clock comes with a nice lead weight, and a brass faced pendulum. The clock has recently been fully over-hauled and keeps excellent time and strikes the hour on a large bell.
