The escape wheel and balance wheel are just visible in this photo

I bought this clock at a car-boot sale a few weeks ago for about 3 pounds. It wasn't working but it was easily fixed. The balance wheel had come loose and it just needed to be tightened a little.

The clock model is called 'Conway' and was manufactured by Smiths in the UK from 1957 to 1958. It uses a 30 hour mechanical movement.

What a lovely clock and what a bargain!

I love your second shot, showing all of the workings in the clock! I gess I should have realised you'd be a master clock fixer too!
