Recommendations for a quality wall clock


Recommended Posts

Appreciate this might not be the right section of the forum to post this in, so apologies in advance...

I'm currently looking for a large wall clock to hang in our kitchen (wife's orders). From what I can tell (by browsing John Lewis). Most use the cheap mass produced movement with plastic hands (sure you all know the type). Which isn't something I particularly want to buy.

As this forum helped me with my first 'luxury' watch purchase, I wondered if there's any recommendations on the best place to look? Thanks.

I have  & can highly recommend one of these modern reproductions of  a  1950`s Smiths clock....

Description
 
Lascelles Clocks have the sole rights to make this quartz replica, first produced by Smiths, England's foremost clock maker in the 1950's. This brown metal cased clock's unique feature is the red sweep seconds hand that moves like the original electric version, for a virtually silent clock.

Imo it`s rather good, especially for the £35  they sell for :thumbsup:

I recommend Sattler clocks (https://www.erwinsattler.com/en/collection/precision-pendulum-clocks/).

They can be a bit pricey but they are absolutely fabulous clocks and are real statement pieces. Top notch German engineering and they keep quite good time, too (for mechanical clocks).

I can also recommend a trip to Bavaria for collection in-person. Not strictly necessary, of course, but Gräfelfing is a nice, picturesque place to visit and you can take-in all the Glashütte manufactures in nearby Saxony and make a real road trip of it.
