Anyone have any information for Mick?
I have recently acquired a gledhillbrook clocking in/out time machine. as I am quite a novice to these fusee movements,
I bought it because it looks great and is an interesting conversation piece.
I was wondering if you could give me a little information about it. the person I bought it from knew very little about it, only
that he thought it it had come from a premises in Huddersfield. it is in working order, although I was told the clocking in mechanism requires re- aligning with the clock, I will eventually have it serviced when I find a clockmaker with experience with these clocks.
it has a darkish oak case, a serial number of 62296. it also has another number on a removerble picece which seems to form part of the throat for placing the cards to clock on/off. this number is 55557.
the dial is very plain with no writing at all, except the number 20 below the 12 hour, about an inch in height. I would assume this refers to the 20th time machine at the factory,although it would have to be a big factory!
it also has written on both side in gold transfer the words gledhillbrook. also about an inch in height.
I would be very grateful for any information.
thank you. mick
