Item:254432693851Ladies and gentlemen, I am selling a number of timepiece, striking and chiming clocks that have cases which fall way below our strict standards for overhaul and retail sale. All of these clocks are in “as purchased” condition and have NOT been cleaned, overhauled, serviced, lubricated or touched in any way whatsoever. I will give as much detail as I can regarding each clock but please DO NOT expect them to be in the same condition as our overhauled clocks! Some may work, some won’t and some will look worse than others. These are suitable for a fellow clock restorer or someone with knowledge of clock restoration and are suitable for spares or repairs. This clock is being SOLD AS SEEN for spares or repairs with no returns accepted. Please see the images as these form part of the description. I have for sale a Smiths "Delhi" 9 inch Bakelite wall clock. It dates to around the middle of the 1950s. It has an 8 day, 7 jewel movement with a platform escapement. It is wound and set by means of the knob protruding from the base of the case. This clock is in working order but has NOT been tested for time keeping. It has an extremely quiet tick. The dial is a 9 inch steel full pan dial, numerated in Arabic “old style” font. As can be seen in the pictures, the dial has some heavy "foxing" but many would say that this just adds to the character of the clock. This clock still retains its original counter balanced hands, which were a major feature of early Smiths wall clocks. There are no cracks or nasty chips to the case but for some reason, someone has removed the optional “cut-out” for an electrical wire. Considering it is a mechanical clock, I fail to see why this happened!! The clock still retains its original wall mounting on the rear of the clock. The rear diameter is 11.25” and it has a 9” dial. It is 3" deep. With some time and effort, this will make an excellent clock for somebody. This listing is open to UK buyers only. Sorry, there are no exceptions to this!! Postage will be by Hermes and despatched within two or three days of receiving payment. Please note that we do NOT use the eBay Global Shipping programme.
