Seller: ky747 (2,674) 100%, Location: Belper, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 282267667803 This is a vintage, Watson & Webb novelty gravity clock, otherwise known as the key-less or kee-less clock. It has a circular drum case raised on twin pillars with a clear glazed dial and visible movement. It has an integral brass base and bun feet. When run down the movement is simply lifted to the top of the columns. One column has a rack which the great wheel pinion in the movement runs along. This type of clock was first introduced at the Crystal Palace British Industry Fair in 1920. Thomas Watson and Christopher Webb took out the patent on 17 June 1919. This particular clock is in excellent condition for its age. Stamped on the rear of the case is PAT 15238-19. Up until quite recently this clock was working well but, unfortunately the mechanism now sometimes falls to the bottom of the pillars without engaging with the drive rack. This should be an easy repair for someone who knows a little about these clocks. It measures approximately 10.5" (27cm) high x 4.5" (11.5cm) wide x 2" (5cm) deep. There is no Buy it Now price and this item will sell to the highest bidder at the end of the auction.
