Object Description

An unusual limited edition ‘Spherical Weight’ lacquered brass novelty timepiece in excellent original condition, created for The Heritage Collection by Harding & Bazeley, Cheltenham in c.1980.

These clocks were made as a limited edition of 1000; we are selling serial number 998.

The clock has 24 polished metal spheres to apply the driving force through gravity. It can however be spring driven – wound by the spokes of the main wheel – and will run for approx 9 days.

The movement backplate is signed Sinclair Harding & Co. and is mounted with a Swiss 11 jewel lever platform escapement, protected by an acrylic box.

The posted frame is surmounted by a curved track to hold the heavy polished spheres that propel a six spoked wheel below to power the movement.

Roman chapter ring and plain centre carrying the name plaque, on a moulded wooden and baize lined base.

Made in Cheltenham, England.

The clock is supplied with copies of the original sales literature and instructions.

We can also supply a glass box which fits neatly over the clock to protect it from dust. The box has well engineered mitered corners, and costs £275.

Photographed is no. 90;  we have no. 998 going through our workshops currently for refurbishment. It will be overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
