      I am looking for a Big Ben "Sculputra" Style 8 Alarm Clocks. If anyone has one in good condition and it works, please let me know. I am looking to purchase one. Thanks.

      I recently saw a photo of three Sculptura made in Canada and there was a lovely purple one as well from their factory I presume.

      Like Eddie, I am looking for one to buy as well. Must be in good working order - I don't have any interest in repairing clocks, I just like to use them as, well, clocks! LOL!

      Regards

      Thanks for sharing the history and what a lovely display.

      I have an example of the Stardust Blue one. I love the smooth action when winding the springs, the fact it is a repeater, the colour (my favourite), the fact you can choose between a loud and soft alarm sound and the retro look of it. The only issue with mine is the black stop alarm knob on top as it's not functioning correctly. A good friend of mine has had the movement out to oil it and examine it and he says they were not really meant to be taken apart due to their robust construction. I could have bought another one at a Scotfair, Stirling, Scotland about a year or so ago for only about £12 GBP, but didn't yield to temptation. I've seen the red variety, but felt it was overpriced.

      Hi antiquerose

      Oh goody, will look forward to seeing yours when you've uploaded it then.

      I have one, however it won't wind. Anyone have any suggestions? Can't find one on-line...and the clock doctor said it was possible at a reasonable price. Any suggestions? I love this clock and got from a deceased relative...it was broken when I got it...but loved the style and the memory so much that I've kept it. I'd just like to repair it or even replace it. The memory will always be there...if it is a different one that works. Thanks. in advance.
