This clock has been left in fantastic original condition. Black steel casing has been waxed to preserve the excellent patina built up over the years to the factory applied paint. Original iconic hands and slave movement now running on a battery operated impulse driver – clock retains that wonderful ‘clunk’ as the minute hand progresses every 30 seconds.

Gents’ of Leicester, was established in Leicester, England, in 1872 by John Thomas Gent. For over a century, the company was a well known manufacturer of electrical equipment, in particular its electric clocks, which were used in public buildings and railway stations all over the world.
