Vintage Smiths Tempora Brass Mantel Clock Sectronic Mk II Movement
This is a beautiful and scarce 1960s/70s Vintage Smiths Tempora Brass Mantel Clock Sectronic Mk II Movement.
It weighs in at a massive 2kg unpacked, mainly due to it’s solid brass casing. It measures 19 x 5 x 9 cm.
The clock is fitted with the famed Sectronic Mk11 movement which dates the clock to 1969. The movement, when fitted with an HP11 battery (not included), ticks away merrily and keeps good time.
There are a few age spots on the brass, which should respond well to the judicious use of metal polish.
All in all a scarce and lovely mantel clock.
“Tempora” was used as tradename for a range of special clocks offered, from the mid 1960s to the end of the 1970s, by the company Smiths Clocks and watches based in the UK.
