This superb solid mahogany regulator is a fine example of Wm Forbes clock making skills. A near copy of a similar piece made circa 1850, regulators like the Birkdale were so accurate they were used to check the accuracy of other less precise clocks. With its 8 day weight driven westminster chime movement and polished gridiron pendulum you can be sure the Birkdale will always show the right time. This outstanding craftsman made clock with its curl-veneered crest would be treasured addition to any home. Size: 47¼"x14 1/8"x8 5/8" (1200x360x230mm)
A beautiful example of craftsmanship in wood, the high gloss burr panels and black boxwood lines of the Imperial are an absolute delight. Quietly understated, this fine regulator shines out with quality and class. With its moon style hands, 8-day key wound mechanical movement with quarterly chimes and hourly strike winding this clock up will be a favourite pastime. Size: 26½"x10"x5" (662x250x125mm)
Beneath the scratch resistant crystal glass is a classic dial with traditional Roman numerals. The cut out to the dial allows viewing of the balance, essentially the "heart" of the watch. Added with the surrounding stainless steel case with winding crown protection lugs, the Exhibition watch truly lives up to its name.
For those looking for something very different- here it is. The Ashurst is one of the most unusual yet stylish looking wall clocks Wm Forbes has ever produced.
