208-Extra Large English Turret Clock
A remarkable example of a 19th Century English Turret Clock Dial. The type of clock you can still see on church towers and town halls. Made from copper in 2 sections riveted together, these dials were then painted and numbered, virtually all with Roman numerals. The original heavy iron movement has long since been scrapped. We have made replica hands (you can choose black or gold) mounted to a quartz movement at the centre of the dial for perfect timing. The movement slips into a box at the front, so that it can be easily removed without taking the clock off the wall every 2 years or so for a new AA battery.
One of the most eye catching clocks I have had, enhanced by the convex shape of the round dial and the glimmer of copper coming through the black paint work.
Size: 125 cm diameter, 14 cm deep
