Seller: graham3943 (1.194) 100%, Location: Thames Ditton, Ships to: Europe, Asia, US, CA, AU, Item: 362761348250 I am retired and have had professional horological training. I have been restoring antique and vintage clocks as a hobby for nearly 40 years. I specialise in carriage clocks. I spent several hours in my workshop earlier this month restoring this one. IT IS A CLASSIC ANTIQUE FRENCH CARRIAGE CLOCK IN WONDERFUL CONDITION. IT IS A GOOD QUALITY CLOCK MADE AROUND 1920. I'VE JUST GIVEN IT A FULL CLEAN AND SERVICE. Height (with handle folded down) 4 1/2 inches (11.5 cms); Width 3 inches (7.5 cms); Depth 2 1/2 inches (6.5 cms) MOVEMENT: 8 day timepiece with its original silvered Swiss lever escapement which works well with good amplitude. As it was working perfectly when I acquired it, I simply checked all parts carefully. Having satisfied myself that there was no wear, I oiled it back and front with appropriate grade clock oil. I also cleaned and oiled the escapement with fine grade watch oil. The whole movement looks almost like it would have done when the clock was first sold.CASE: Solid brass case in wonderful overall condition. All the case parts - including the cast brass top and the base - are stamped with the same number (264) showing it to be completely original. The rear door is a perfect fit and opens and closes with absolute precision - always a good sign! It has restored beautifully. The case was quite tarnished when I got the clock. So, I completely dismantled it and cleaned all the parts carefully before hand polishing them to preserve as much of the original detail as possible. I finished the process with a chalk brush. I then gave them a couple of coats of special wax polish to delay the tarnishing process. The case now has a rich antique patina which should last for years.DIAL: I cleaned the white enamel-on-copper dial which is in absolutely perfect condition. The roman numerals and the chapter ring are crystal clear. The polished blued steel hands are in perfect condition.GLASSES: All five thick bevelled glasses - made out of top quality "greenish" optical glass - are in perfect condition.KEY: The clock comes with a new double-ended brass carriage clock key. One end is for winding the movement and the other is for adjusting the hands. A fast/slow adjustment lever is reached through the rear door.INSTRUCTIONS: I will enclose a brief note with the clock explaining how to get it started if it has stopped when you receive it. I will also give you my contact details so that you can get in touch with me with any questions about care and maintenance. HAVING JUST BEEN CLEANED AND SERVICED,THIS CLASSIC ANTIQUE CARRIAGE CLOCK IS IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION. IT WILL NOT NEED SERVICING AGAIN FOR YEARS. The clock is heavy and will be packed well, hence the charges! Packaging (new double boxes) & Postage (tracked and insured) UK £10.00; EU £20.00 (approx. 22 Euros); Elsewhere £30.00 I pack well, post promptly after payment and keep purchasers informed at all stages of the transaction. I would ask that you kindly glance at my 100% positive feedback on eBay - a record I am proud of and intend to maintain.
