Vintage Smiths Travel Alarm Clock In A Red Leather Case

This is an exquisite, working, Vintage Smiths Travel Alarm Clock in a Red Leather Case. 

Approximate Size:
Case Width, Height, Depth (WHD): 9.4 x 9 x 2.9 cm
Clock Face Width (including Chrome surround): 7.5cm

In pretty good working condition, the alarm clock face is cream-white, with the hands and numerals in a contrasting black with beige highlights. Really easy to read from a distance but not in the dark as its hands are not luminous. The rear of the clock has light surface blemishes.

The red leather casing is in fair vintage condition with surface blemishes/scuffs commensurate with age and use. However, the side of the leather on the lid has ripped at some stage and someone has attempted to repair it with glue! The leather could be replaced.

The price has been adjusted to account for these defects.

The insides of the case still have their perspex protective covers, which are intact but quite fragile.

The clock is thought to date to the 1940s, and it is possible that the 7-Jewel, 8-Day, movement may have been manufactured by Jaeger leCoultre (JLC) for Smiths. We haven’t opened up the clock to check for any distinguishing maker’s marks. It would probably require a CLA (clean, lube and adjust) service to guarantee accurate time keeping. 

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