Three Train Skeleton Clock
This magnificent chiming Skeleton Clock is the result of
months of painstaking hand work. Each plate is individually cut out of solid
brass, edge filed, papered smooth, burnished and gilded before finally being
built into a finished clock. Every wheel and arbor, detent and lever has been
finished by hand to give the whole mechanism the glittering aspect of a true
work of art.
The motive power for the 8 day movement is provided by three
mainsprings each operating through its respective fusee and chain to give
virtually constant torque to the train of wheels. The going train is fitted with
a recoil anchor escapement and controlled by a 0.4 sec pendulum to give a good
standard of time keeping.
The escape pallet is made from high carbon steel, with through
hardened faces diamond polished to a mirror finish assuring a long life. The
chiming train operates a pinned drum and hammer assembly which can be set to
play Westminster or a choice of Whittington and St Michael chimes on a hand
tuned octave of cast bells, whilst the striking train sounds the hours on a
ninth tenor bell. The levers and racks controlling this activity are finished to
the same meticulous standard.
The movement is mounted on a Sicilian white marble base, which
in its turn, is supported on a mahogany plinth. The brass bound glass shade
protects the whole clock from dust, while at the same time allows perfect
