- Curator's comments
- The movement in this clock is almost identical to that seen in 2012,8028.133 (GW270), That clock was made by H Williamson c.1920, this clock by Smiths c.1950.
This is the model '123' which was front wound. Smiths also made a similar model, '277' which had rear winding and hand-set (see 2012,8028.137). They also offered the option of a seconds hand.
