Seller: graham3943 (1.204) 100%, Location: Thames Ditton, Ships to: Europe, Asia, US, CA, AU, Item: 362786213260 I AM RETIRED AND HAVE BEEN RESTORING ANTIQUE AND VINTAGE CLOCKS AS A HOBBY FOR 40 YEARS. I HAVE HAD PROFESSIONAL HOROLOGICAL TRAINING. I SPECIALISE IN ANTIQUE CARRIAGE CLOCKS. WHENEVER I CAN ACQUIRE A MATTHEW NORMAN CLOCK AT A SENSIBLE PRICE, I DO. BEING SO BEAUTIFULLY MADE, THEY ARE A GREAT PLEASURE TO WORK ON. I HAVE JUST FINISHED RESTORING AND SERVICING THIS MINIATURE. MINIATURE SWISS (MATTHEW NORMAN*) 8 DAY TIMEPIECE CARRIAGE CLOCK WITH KEYS * Originally an English company, Matthew Norman was taken over by a Swiss company. These clocks are now Swiss made. The clock is shown in the second picture alongside a standard sized Matthew Norman carriage clock for size comparison purposes only. The clock for auction is the small one on the right in that picture Height (with handle folded down) 3 1/2 inches (8.5 cms); Width 2 1/4 inches (6 cms); Depth 2 inches (5 cms) CLOCK CASE: Brass. Perfect original condition. I completely dismantled the case , removed the original lacquer which was badly tarnished in places, then cleaned and hand-polished it before giving it some coats of special micro-crystalline wax polish (this will make it easier to clean the case in future). It now has a beautiful antique patina without looking over-polished, and looks almost as good as new.MOVEMENT: Beautifully engineered movement in perfect original condition. The number 762 is etched on the front plate beneath the dial. The movement is fitted with its original 7 jewelled compensated lever escapement. The clock was working perfectly when I acquired it and had been professionally serviced a few months ago (I will enclose a note with the clock detailing the work that was carried out on the movement). Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, I took the movement out of the case, removed the hands and dial, checked it carefully for wear (there was none), before cleaning, reassembling and oiling it with appropriate grade clock and watch oil. It is now working beautifully and keeping good time on an 8 day wind.DIAL: Both the dial and the hands are original and in perfect condition.GLASSES: All five thick bevelled glasses are in perfect condition. They are specially shaped to slot into grooves in the base and top - a particular (unseen) feature of these high quality Matthew Norman carriage clocks.KEY: The clock comes with two replacement keys. One is for winding the movement and the other is for adjusting the hands. There is also a fast/slow adjustment lever which is reached through the rear door - which opens and closes very easily with absolute precision.INSTRUCTIONS: I will enclose a brief note with the clock explaining how to get it going if it has stopped in the post. I will also let the successful bidder have my contact details should you have any questions later about how to care for your clock.THIS MINIATURE CLOCK IS IN IMMACULATE ORIGINAL CONDITION (To purchase one new today - and this model is still in production - you would have to pay in excess of £850.00) PACKAGING (new double boxes) & POSTAGE (tracked and insured); UK £10.00; EU £20.00 (approx 25 Euros) Elsewhere £30.00 I pack well, post promptly and aim to keep purchasers informed at each stage of the order/shipping process.
