Clock, built in France , having an EXTREMELY RARE BROTHER. JOHN Chime AND a Westminster Chime, on 10 BARS!BEVELLED CRYSTALS in the front door. All in an AMAZING ART DECO Style. Back to a NEW Functioning condition, offered. Please listen to the INTENSE sound of this clock by clicking the. I made an extra photoshoot, with LOTS of extra photo material. Among which photos from every angle of the movement, which. Can be seen by clicking the following YouTube Link. This clock is SO Special... I guarantee you that you will NEVER find a wall clock in.
This condition with the BROTHER JOHN Chime EVER!! This clock, having a BROTHER JOHN and WESTMINSTER Chime. I only found twice in my entire carreer! EVERY single part of the movement has been checked and has been. Cleaned and oiled, with the BEST synthetic clock oil there is.This clock will perform the way it should, for decades to come! Restoring this beauty took me over 2 weeks....
I even polished all authentic screws! The SILVER PLATED, SQUARE DIAL is to die for. Photo 3 shows you how much effort was taken in making this. Clock look and perform the way it currently does. Litterally every single part has been treated with a lot of TLC.The SHINING, BRASS key is placed in a special keyholder, inside. The clock, on the right side. This beauty has a Movement performing like NEW -> a VEDETTE. One, being praised for its reliability. VEDETTE used the HARDEST metal for their movement, making. Them SO much more reliable. Ready to tick for decades without giving ANY problems. Special is that this beauty has a very well overthought design, with. The materials and coulours creating a stunning cosmetic balance! Please take a look at the way the BEVELED Crystal windows. I decided to paint the inside of the clock black, because it was in. A bad shape before restoring the case. Note the weight this HUGE clock has; almost 9 kg's! This beauty has 2 ropes with springs on them, which makes it able. To silence the Chime and / or the hour striking.
When securing the left rope to the hook, this silences the hour. Striking and the right rope silences the chiming. When securing BOTH ropes, both the chiming and striking are. The symmetry of this time piece is overwhelming... The word "symmetry", to a whole different level!
The SILVER PLATED dial shows you the time in Black. The hands are made of black metal, matching the numbers perfectly. The dial has 60 partitions, one for each minute, making this a very. Precise indeed, because this time-piece runs PERFECTLY ON.The pendulum comes in SHINING BRASS, matching the other. Feautures, such as the ORIGINAL DISTANCE KEEPERS inside the. Clock, avoiding the clock from slide on your wall, when opening the. The lower, BEVELED crystal, shows you the swinging pendulum. In front of the dial, there is a 8 Sided crystal, having the same shape.
As the dial, which is definately an EYECATCHER! The BROTHER JOHN chime is played on 6 LARGE bars; the. Westminster on 4 bars and the striking on full hours strikes on.
4 bars as well, creating a sound I have seldom heard... Even the GONG BLOCK has been cleaned and polished!Please take a look at the condition of the movement... This clock passed time without major cosmetic issues. Overall this object is in an excellent state but not new. Used products have signs of use, however this clock looks.
