This is a good quality antique 16″ mahogany wall clock, circa 1930, designed for use in municipal buildings, with a railway station design, has been lovingly restored to its former glory and is now in good working order, as can been seen from the photos. The painted tin dial is an old replacement dial, exhibiting wear and old use marks. The mahogany case is in lovely condition having been French polished. The brass-hinged bezel is in good working order, with some play to the hinge. The bezel-locking latch is present and working and prevents the bezel from opening. The mechanism is original; it has been cleaned and serviced and is in good working order, keeping good time. As we are confident that you will have no problems with the mechanism, we offer a 2-year UK warranty whereby if there were a mechanical problem with the clock, we would collect it free of charge from you, have it repaired and returned free of charge to you. We also offer a 14-day UK returns policy if you were not happy with it or wanted to return it for any reason. Please also note, this railway wall clock has the original mechanism; it has not been replaced with a cheaper devaluing electrical battery-operated kit that you see on some clocks.
