Mechanical Carriage Clocks

Our antique & vintage clocks all run off a mechanical movement basis. Mechanical clocks are a sign of good quality clock movement. Unlike digital clocks, your vintage clock will require an annual service to maintain its condition and clock mechanisms.

We have a range of movement types from the classic 8-day mechanical mantel clock style popular in French Clocks, or the 14-day mechanical mantel clock options which are slightly more expensive. 

Typically mechanical carriage clocks will be wound every  8 days, to prevent the carriage clock from coming to a complete stop, re-wind on the 7th day
