Comtoise - 8-day anchor escapement movement - with striking mechanism on bell on whole and half hours
This station clock is very popular because it also fits in a modern interior.
This clock with anchor escapement (1850–1900) comes with a folding pendulum and two weights of matching age.
This clock has brass dial corners.
The round bezel dial is also called a station clock.
This clock has Roman numerals on a beautiful white enamelled dial.
The clock strikes once every half hour. On whole hours it indicates the time, which is repeated 2 minutes later. This used to be necessary because there was no lighting. The clock was in a different room from where people slept, so one could count the time again two minutes later.
