Object Description

A good oak-cased electric wall clock dating from the early part of the 20th century.

The pendulum drives the motionwork by an electromagnetic system, powered with a standard modern 1.5V battery.

The half second pendulum with Invar steel rod was specially constructed to avoid variations in temperature. It has a large bronze spherical bob over a curved magnet.

The rectangular glazed oak case has two clips at the top to affix it to the marble slab on which the movement is mounted, which itself fixes to the wall by way of a metal strip.

The perfect 6-inch white enamel dial is signed Electrique Brillié, with Roman numerals and a polished and lacquered cast brass bezel.

Original matching black spade hands, and fine black seconds hand.

When new, these Brillié clocks could be regulated to an accuracy of +/- 1 sec/day.
