Seller: rick_clunk_click (1,263) 100%, Location: Northallerton, Ships to: GB, Item: 233471980646 This is a GPO Telephone Exchange or Post Office clock. Manufactured by Gent of Leicester with a 30 seconds (half-minute) impulse 'Slave' movement; designed to work on a low voltage series circuit, driven by a master - clock. Its aluminium case has numerous dents & scratches but would probably clean up well & look good with a re-spray, though it is unlikely to ever look pristine around the edges. The dial & hands however seem to be in good condition & just need a clean. The whole item is overall a little dirty & looking neglected. PLEASE NOTE THIS CLOCK CANNOT OPERATE ON MAINS VOLTAGE & WILL NOT OPERATE UNLESS CONNECTED TO AN APPROPRIATE MASTER-CLOCK OR 30 SECONDS IMPULSE. I am unsure of its date as these clocks were made over several decades for use in GPO Strowger Exchanges & Post Offices. The Gent of Leicester slave is mechanically sound but could do with a clean. Its electromagnet is fine & the broken bakelite windings corner has not effected the coils continuity. The Bakelite back cover is missing, as are its retaining nuts. This would make an ideal easy restoration project for an electromechanical clock enthusiast.This clock will be thoroughly well packed with bubble-wrap & thick corrugated cardboard stiffners to protect it from postal impact. NO RETURNS ACCEPTED ON THIS ITEM. DO NOT BID WITHOUT ACCEPTING IT IS SOLD AS IT IS IN THE DESCRIPTION & PICTURES THAT FORM PART OF THIS DESCRIPTION. I WILL ANSWER QUESTIONS AS BEST AS POSSIBLE BEFOREHAND. IF IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE BIDDING! POSTAGE IS WITH MY HERMES SIGN-FOR, TO U.K. MAINLAND STANDARD DISTANCE ONLY, THANKYOU.
