Great Wheel Skeleton Clock

Great Wheel Skeleton Clock

The superb artistry which typifies the French Horologists of the late 18th Century seems to culminate in this beautiful clock. Deceptively simple, the restrained elegance serves to enhance the obvious craftsmanship inherent in such fine wheelwork with its delicate crossings and very high tooth counts.

The frames, pierced out of solid Brass, are gracefully faceted, polished and burnished to provide a gleaming support for the four-wheel train. The Great Wheel has 288 teeth and makes only one revolution daily. This drives the centre wheel with a diameter slightly larger than the bezel, thus, when viewed from the front, frames the enamel dial.

The escapement is a ‘Graham Deadbeat’ controlled by a ‘silk’ suspension pendulum and the whole requires winding once weekly. The movement is mounted on a slim, white marble or granite base to the customer's choice and is protected by a framed glass shade.

Sinclair Harding offers two designs, a variation of the classic ‘Y’ frame French Skeleton Clock and the 'Arch' frame where the graceful curves of the frame legs are engraved with a simple yet elegant pattern.

“Finely pierced wheels can be found in all of Sinclair Harding's clocks. This style of wheel has been traditionally used on the finest clocks throughout history.”
