    Well, couldn't resist at the clock fair today, spent £30 on a 'probably all there' box of bits.
    Time to start cleaning and see what I have, any suggestions from anyone as to what I may have bought and where I can get a picture of what it should look like?
    Only got 1 hand so guessing it is quite early rather than has a hand missing... Whatever it is, looks like fun to me.:clap:
    Regards
    Chris

    Mike, photos were just what i needed, thanks.
    Veritas, I thought it was a bit pricey, but not by much, was after something to have a play with more than an out and out bargain, soon see if it was worth it.
    Anyone any idea about the age?

    Well, after a first clean and using the pictures I have managed to get it together.
    Missing the small gear that drives the count ring but everything else was in the box, couple of left overs that had me confused for a while!
    Anyone give a guess at the date, seems to be middle 1700's for this style?

    As a hobbiest, I see these old English LC movements sell on ebay. Thinking they are a little pricey. However, the price of repro movements sold by clock parts + tool suppliers isn't exactly cheap. I'd rather have an older movement.
