- Davall tower movement with typical Davall suspension block.
The winding key was acquired by Bill Wolmuth separately from the clock, but is of the correct type for this clock.
The pendulum was acquired by Bill Wolmuth separately from the clock as an example of the type that would have been fitted. It is however slightly too long for this movement.
Minute hand not original - Bill Wolmuth had it made, using pattern copied from minute hand of another clock of this type.
There is a film on the British Pathe website about the production of this clock.
