Seller: jonabag_98 (117) 100%, Location: Loughborough, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 392649343011 For sale is a Garrard oak cased, 14 day, striking mantel clock in fabulous condition. It comes complete with original ‘Garrard’ stamped key and chrome pendulum. As a bit of background, Garrard & Co were the Crown Jewellers who set up an engineering company as part of the war effort in 1914. In a later effort at diversification, they entered the market for high grade, mass produced clocks, with their first clock being launched in 1931. Garrard clocks are renowned for a high quality of engineering, and having serviced the clock, I can certainly attest to that. It’s well crafted, solidly built, with thick front and rear plates (polished and ‘snailed’ - see pictures). Wheels have five spokes, pendulum and key are chrome plated, even the fly wheel has a snailed finish...they ooze quality. It is in excellent working order following a complete service (details below) and keeps time with a strong and steady tick. It strikes the hours on the spiral gong on the hour and once on the half hour.

The glass and bezel are in very good condition, with the chrome being bright, polished and untarnished - it closes with a firm click. The rear door also opens and closes smoothly and shuts securely. The dial and hands are also in excellent condition, with numbering and minute divisions well marked. There is a little bit of fading between the ‘5’ and ‘6’. Dimensions are 25cm wide, 22cm high and 13cm deep. In terms of servicing, the movement was stripped down (see picture), cleaned using an ultrasonic bath and an horological cleaning solution. Pivot holes were inspected for wear, and unusually, were all found to be in good order, so no re-bushing was required. The movement was then re-assembled and re-oiled using both heavy and medium clock oil. The original Garrard springs (see photo) were removed from the barrels, cleaned and inspected. They were found to be in good order, so I simply re-oiled them and refitted them. They still just run for a full 14 days, as they should. The clock will be posted in brand new packaging and double boxed for added protection. Pendulum / bob will be removed for transport and the springs let down. Delivery will be via Royal Mail’s Parcel Force 48 signed service - it is a little more expensive than others, but I have found them to be consistently reliable in delivering fragile items. As an aside, it’s coming from a smoke and pet free home. It will also be set ‘in beat’ for a properly level surface (‘in beat’ being a nice and evenly spaced ‘tick-tock’ sound when the pendulum is swinging). However, should the journey to you affect that setting, or if it’s being placed on a not quite level surface, it may need adjusting. If you need it, I’ll be happy to provide assistance. It’s not a complicated process and I’ll be happy to talk you through it. I want you to be really happy with your clock. However, if you decide it’s not what you wanted, or expected, I offer a 14 day money back guarantee. The clock must be returned in its original condition and you would be responsible for postage and packing costs. If you have any questions that aren’t answered above, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I’m happy to provide any additional information I can.
