My Clocks
Some old, some new, some mass produced, some made by me.



This one is the oldest I have but don't have a date. It's of French origin with a 15 day movement.


This is modern reproduction of a typical American clock. It has a 15 day movement.


An early-mid 20th C clock with (non-working) chimes; in need of some TLC.


This one was originally a time recorder, probably used for clocking in at a factory. Made by the Gledhill-BrookTime Recorders Ltd - Huddersfield. The recording mechanism has been removed and the space now houses my "shrine" to Fred Dibnah.


This is a fairly modern reproduction - about 1970-ish?


A simple wood face housing a radio controlled movement.


This one is situated above the cooker but, no, it's not actually melted. It's made of metal and glass and is deliberately made to look Dali-esque. Made in Italy by Arti & Mestieri Design.


This is a quartz movement "built in" to a kitchen cupboard door.


Another simple quartz movement fitted onto a plate.


Yes, I did build this one into a framed jigsaw puzzle.


... and, yes, this one is a CD.


The face of this one is moulded in metal-filled cold-cast resin, poured into a wax mould carved by yours truly.


Another radio controlled clock.


This is a miniature copy of a clock by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.


This was a retirement present. Made by Dartington Crystal.


A modern framed quartz clock depicting steam engines in rural settings.


A nice clock with a twist ;-)


A 24 hour clock.


A 24 hour sun clock showing the (approximate) position of the sun.


A simple cube clock made using a radio controlled module in a perspex box.


I don't know what this one's called but it's clever.


Decimal clock. Unfortunately, it uses a standard 24 hr movement so minutes and seconds would be useless.


A moon & tide clock.


The ultimate kitchen clock - a Metamec synchronous mains electric.


Not clocks but pocket watches. Only one is old - the one at the front. Well used; originally owned by my Great Uncle Lolly and engraved with his initials. Prescot is the name on the dial.


Great Uncle Lolly (without his watch, sadly).
