Its case is of polished black slate with black-veined, burgundy marble detail to front corners. White enamelled dial with black Roman numerals and blued-steel shaped hands. Gilt inner bezel with beaded outer surround to the bevelled glass dial cover. The dial is signed Cromey & Son Bristol. A twin-train 8-day movement with Brocot pendulum adjustment – striking the hours and half-hour on a bell. Serial number 6036 stamped throughout including backplate, bezel and pendulum – all original. ‘AB’ stamped on bezel and (in a five-pointed star) on the backplate.
Excellent timekeeper. Fully cleaned and serviced but retaining its antique patina. The clock's movement is covered by our 12 month warranty in the UK. Watch a brief video of it striking on our website (www.antique-ethos.co.uk).

Achilles Brocot (1817-1878) worked in Paris as a clockmaker producing both “blank” movements for use in clocks as well as complete mantle and carriage clocks. A well-known maker, he developed the Brocot suspension adjustment as well as the exposed escapement. His trademark was AB within a five-pointed star.  William Cromey is listed as a goldsmiths and clockmaker – operating in Bristol from 1845 until 1891. He traded as Cromey and Son from 1873.
