WONDERFUL VINTAGE 8 DAY SEWILLS OF LIVERPOOL SHIPS / BULKHEAD WALL CLOCK

 

This lovely clock was made by "Sewills of Liverpool, Maker to the Admiralty", who sadly are no more. This renowned company of clockmakers ceased trading in 2001 after 200 years in business. Here is a lovely ships clock in superb condition, made by them, sometime before that date.

As I hope the pictures show, the whole piece is in superb condition. Not a dint, scratch or any other damage to the case, dial or its beautiful solid mahogany surround. All components are clean and bright, just as the makers intended. The brushed aluminium dial is particularly pleasing, displaying their history along with various awards gained at international Expos of the day.

The case is beautiful, highly polished and lacquered brass, with a heavy cast bezel and thick bevelled glass. This is opened/closed via the hand screwed clasp on the righthand side. It measures over 6 inches across the dial, 11 inches across the mahogany mount (this of course could be removed if desired), and 5 inch in depth.

Condition: as mentioned, the clock looks pristine, complete with its original key. It winds and runs easily, for a full eight days.....but, it gains a couple of minutes a day, which is usually indicative of requiring a service/clean.

These are quality, handsome ships clocks made by a English company, with a history in such crafts, going back 200 years.
