Item Details


  • Age: Antique, Pre-1900
  • Type: Striking
  • Sub-Type: Movements

A good striking French clock movement with a slightly convex enamel dial that has excellent chapters complete with bezel and beveled glass. The blued hands are delightful in style. The number 7830 on the dial looks to have been added when the clock was sold and is not fused into the dial it could be cleaned off or retained as desired. It probably shows that the clock was originally in a commercial environment, office, railway etc. The movement has been out of its case for many years and requires a full clean. There are no damaged teeth, pinions, pivots, broken main springs or other nasty surprises. It has count wheel striking on a bell. Bell stand and retaining nut present but no bell, hammer head and most of striking arm missing. The size of the barrels would suggest that this is a 14 day movement. Serial number 565 on back plate and bezel, no pendulum but 7 2 gives guide to length. Stamped S Marti & Cie Medaille de bronze Which indicates made between 1860 and 1900 hand style would suggest perhaps closer closer to 1860. Has its original retaining straps but one requires a repair. Original Brocot adjustable suspension. A little nibbling of the enamel by the winding holes. Movement dirty but does not show signs of excessive wear. A touch of surface rust to blued areas including hands . Min hole size 5 5/16 ins max 5 1/2 ins (allows a little overlap) retaining strap 4 3/8 ins. I have tried to point out all faults with this movement but please do ask if not sure. Overseas buyers would pay an eBay shipping charge this is quite a heavy movement so check first.
