The 5 inch enamel dial has twin winding holes, Roman numerals and original gilt brass hands.
The substantial quality movement which fills the width of the case has arch shaped plates and an engraved border which is repeated on the edge of the brass lenticular pendulum bob. The clock comes with its bespoke wall bracket.
