Seller: rick_clunk_click (1,263) 100%, Location: Northallerton, Ships to: GB, Item: 233472848575 This is an old Smiths Synchronous clock with unusual original ceramic dial. A small hole at 12:00 indicates the typical wiggly line on rotating disk that moves when the clock is running to show that it is operational. It came in a box of parts & presumably was as part of a complete clock case that is sadly missing. It us unusual to see one with porcelain type dial & Arabic numerals such as this. There is some dirt on the dial & back & some hairline crazing or cracks to the dial but not severe. Some enamel is chipped where the copper dial plate was screwed to whatever case it came from, but this area would presumably have been be out of site from the rest of the clock. The hand-set knob at the rear is the push & turn to set type & works well. Possibly starting the clock upon release, as it may well pre-date the self starting synchronous motor era. The clock movement is untested. It looks like a previous owner had soldered & heat-shrink insulated the mains power terminals which seems a sensible idea, considering the small plugs often found on these were prone to drop off, or worse, be only half connected leaving live exposed terminals! I've no doubt this could be serviced by a competent enthusiast. Knowing the robust over-engineered manufacturing of these clocks it is likely to still work & would benefit a drop-down, clean, re-grease & rebuild. I have NOT tested this clock so it is sold as NOT WORKING FOR SPARES OR REPAIRS ONLY! It will be thoroughly wrapped in bubble-wrap & stiff corrugated cardboard to protect it from postal impact.
