Vintage Smiths Empire Travel Alarm Clock In A Sliding Brass And Tortoise Shell Effect Case

This is a lovely, working, Vintage Smiths Empire Travel Alarm Clock In A Sliding Brass And Tortoise Shell Effect Case.

I think the case is possibly either an enamel or painted stylised tortoise shell effect. The clock dates to the 1950s.

Approximate Size:

  • Closed Case Width: 11.7 cm
  • Open Case Width, Height, Depth (WHD): 18.5 x 7.5 x 3.5
  • Clock Face Width (including Brass surround): 7cm

In very good working condition, the alarm clock face is cream-white, with the hands and numerals in a contrasting gold. Really easy to read from a distance, the number positions are luminous. The rear of the clock has light surface blemishes.

The casing is in good vintage condition with surface blemishes/scuffs commensurate with age and use.

We haven’t opened up the clock to check for any distinguishing maker’s marks but it was made in Great Britain. It would probably require a CLA (clean, lube and adjust) service to guarantee accurate time keeping. 

All in all, a beautiful, and useable, collectible alarm clock. You don't see many with this design!
