Smiths Astral Brass Cased Ships Bulk Head Clock. Sn 14024 - 14024
Smiths trace their ancestry back to a craftsman named Samuel Smith who in 1851 opened a shop in Newington Causeway, London, where he made and sold watches, clocks and precision instruments. Astral was not a manufacturer. It was a trade name introduced by H Williamson Ltd. to indicate a particular range of clocks. In May 1932 the Clock manufacturing operations of English Clock and Watch Manufacturers Ltd. were acquired by S Smith & Sons (Motor Accessories) Ltd. The purchase meant that Smiths acquired rights to many movement designs. Probably the most important of these were the Astral and Empire marine ranges, both of which remained in production for many years. This is a ships bulkhead clock contained in a beautiful brass case with brass mounting plate, factory drilled on the flange with four holes for bulkhead mounting. The clock is fully serviced and has a pristine fully working movement. The hinged bezelled face glass is in perfect condition. The face has minutes marked round the circumference 5-60 and in the centre a sub hour scale marked 1- 12. It has two black hands, one minute hand and one hour hand which is shortened to fit inside the sub scale. It has a red second hand. There is an F-S adjuster to quickly fine tune the speed at which the clock is running. It is complete with a brass winding key. The clock face measures 7 3/4" n diameter and the case measures 8 1/2" in diameter. The clock measures 4" from the mounting plate to the top of the face glass. This is a very nice, fully working and pristine condition ships bulkhead clock. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14024
