Table Regulators

Table Regulators

Probably the most classic of all the clocks made by Sinclair Harding is the Table Regulator. The case is made from solid brass polished, bronzed and finally finished with beeswax. It is embellished with heavily gilded furniture such as the classical urn finial on the top, or four palmettos, which break the severe line of the base, mounted on adjustable feet. The front and back opening glass doors are 6mm thick. Similarly finished are the side panels, which give an interesting view of the movement.

The dial is pure ‘Breguet’ with its large diameter seconds and slim chapter ring. Engraved and silvered by hand it represents the high point of elegant simplicity in dial design. The clock has a very substantial 8 day movement controlled by an unusual ‘high Q’ spherical pendulum beating half seconds.

Almost every component for the Table Regulator is individually made in Sinclair Harding’s own workshop. The case itself is made from nearly 60 parts, machined from solid brass. The attention to detail is reflected in the hinge and catches arrangement of the front and back opening doors. This is a rare example of an entirely hand made traditional British clock.

At Sinclair Harding we like to use different combinations of finish and materials to make each clock unique. The example shown to the right shows an Aluminium case, polished and finished Blue with a Rhodium movement.

The escapement is a Sinclair Harding modification of the fascinating double three-legged gravity escapement - the original design by Lord Grimethorpe controls the great Westminster Clock in London, more commonly known as Big Ben.
