- This clock has a Smiths Model A 8-day movement, which was reviewd in' the Watch and Clock Maker' in January 1935, where it is described as an 'Excellent Drum Movement with Ingenious Case Fitting'.
In this example the teeth of the great wheel are cut into the side wall of the spring barrel (other examples, such as 2012,8028.13, have a traditional great wheel).
