  1. Hi Kerry Right, I reckon this is a rarer one. I'm sure Len has another, better one in his glass cabinet at Shapes, Edinburgh, Scotland. He may have sold it by now, don't know. The musical ala...
  2. Hi racer4four I thought your comment was quite funny and passed it onto my mate, who owns this clock. Perpcal
  3. Hi Kerry You're most welcome and I look forward to seeing more of yours. Perpcal
  4. So, it has square plates, yes, I've had 2 French clocks with square plates - rarer. Rack and snail is better by far. Interesting re pendulum. Again, great job. Perpcal
  5. Hi Jeff Nice to see you're on this site also! Yes, another nice one and with some provenance - GHS. It is the 'blower' style movement which are more readily available, but I wouldn't mind it ...
  6. Yes, thanks, inky. I saw another one on eBay very recently with an unusual extra 'spring' which my one does not have. Was tempted to bid, but couldn't.
  7. Hi Kerry That's it uploaded now - Noddy Alarm Clock
  8. Hi Kerry That's the Noddy uploaded and will have to take pics of my other 2. I could have sworn that I had, but cannot see them where they are meant to be. It shouldn't take long either, using my...
  9. Dear Kerry Thanks for getting back to me. That's amazing that you have as many as that! You must be sitting on a fortune. I reckon those clocks will become valuable in years to come. If yo...
  10. Many thanks for advising re the chimes. Perpcal
  11. I like the Woody Woodpecker one and I own a Noddy one - slightly older than your one I think as it has a broader base. There are a whole series of Smiths automaton alarm clocks and I now own 3. Ther...
  12. I just want to say it's utterly gorgeous and my favourite colour. The dial is really eye-catching. Sorry, I cannot give you its history however.
  13. I or a penfriend might be able to help you and I think it's French and probably made in about the 1920s-30s. If you could add additional photos of the movement, that would help I'm sure. It's a nice...
  14. A big bold statement indeed this clock makes. Which chimes does it play? I have heard of and now seen several of these clocks thanks to a penfriend who lives in Wisconsin. These were quality-built...
  15. A real beauty: both blue and green! I have a Schatz turquoise one and has been overhauled professionally and I love it. Thanks for sharing your one.
  16. My favourite colour! A nice retro piece. Again I say there is a dealer in Edinburgh, Scotland who has a whole load of these for sale. I myself have a collection now of 3 and would love to add to th...
  17. I love these clocks despite their great weight. The movements were well-made, usually circular plate, but there were square plate ones made also. There's plenty of lovely green malachite panels in ...
  18. Another nice one. My friend has a Gordian Hettiche cuckoo/quail and it's been recently overhauled. All it really needs now is a new pendulum specially made for it to be keeping with the style of ca...
  19. Nice one. A friend collects owls and has almost 5000. He'd love this one! Interesting what you say about these clocks. I also have a Junghans Trivox alarm clock which is very quiet in operation. ...
  20. Hi racer4four Many thanks. Yes, I was looking around at my favourite clocks on-line on my break doing overtime yesterday and came across this site by chance! Glad I found it. Thanks for your ...
  21. Hello again Just to say that I have never seen one before with the winding holes in these locations, so most interesting. Thanks for sharing. Another 'corker'.
  22. Another big chunky-monkey one. The dial is lovely and thanks for including pics of the movement. They were all well-made these circular French movements and have owned several in the past. They ar...
  23. I love these clocks: they look good and are of good quality. I've owned 2 or 3 of these in the past. They are heavy beasties though! The best types are those with centre seconds or even the rar...
  24. You've done an outstanding job then and had me going there for a few seconds till I read you'd make the case. I love these type of French clocks with the clear dials, exposed visible escapement and a...
  25. Hello I've seen others like it and yes, it is quality all right. Unfortunately I cannot elaborate on maker, etc for you. I advise you hold onto it.
  26. I've just recently signed up and typed in one of my favourite types of clock and sure enough, a few came up. I like these as well and see one well-known BF clock dealer and collector from USA is on t...
  27. Congratulations on your handy work. I too have a Noddy alarm which I won at auction in England a few years back and it works well. There are 2 types: Smiths and Timecal. I don't much go for the l...
  28. Yep, I like these clocks all right, but not so suitable for use here in the UK. I'd have to invest in an electrical current meter to suit the motor for these American calendar clocks. That's what m...
  29. Hi I had one of these clocks, though it was in Japanese or Chinese and sold it on eBay. I like the idea, but your one is in English which is easier to follow. Nice to see another one. Thanks...
  30. See more
