      Hi,
      I have not seen one with that finish before myself, although I doubt it's rare, as it was made by Smiths Enfield (probably in the 1950's-60's), an English company, as you may know, that produced many varieties of these bakelite clocks. Your movement has what's called a floating balance escapement. An unusual find, nonetheless!
      Regards.
