Joseph Smith of Chester – back to life

default image
Our two train bracket clock was looking very sad, brought about by years of neglect, coupled with a really bad conversion from its verge to anchor. After intensive research into movements made by Joseph Smith, Tommy (Christopher) was able to remake and replace the escapement, plus the missing strike/silent mechanism. This, with other work such as new hands was completed to the highest standard- it is a pleasure to see this clock working again as the maker intended. Joseph Smith himself would smile.
