Key Features

This beautiful travel clock hails from the early 1900’s, and features an original enamel dial and blued steel hands. The clock was originally in a leather purse or desk frame, and can be used on a desk or mounted on some kind of stand. The movement is a Roskopf Pin-lever type, which is not as reliable as modern Swiss-lever type movements, but this particular specimen works really well. The dial design has large, beautiful Arabic numerals, combined with a pair of thick, statement hour and minute hands. The ticking of the clock has a clear, pleasant sound – perfect for keeping in your living room or study.
