I have a puzzle for members who know their history. We have a wall clock. It was sold to us in India in the 1980s as a railway station clock - allegedly from the station master's office in Lucknow. It has a 12 inch diameter face with arabic numerals. It is marked Smiths Enfield, with Made in England below the 6. The 8 day movement is marked Smiths and Made in England. It has a heavy pendulum with S ---- F cast into it above a regulating nut. The face is off-white. The case is solid wood, maybe pale mahogany or good quality pine. Now, here's the puzzle. I have read about the history of the Enfield company and the takeover by Smiths. This should mean that a clock marked Smiths Enfield dates from around 1950. But this is after India's independence. Were the Indian railways still equipping their stations with wind-up 8 day clocks in 1950? Or is it a good forgery. The pictures attached are a. the face of our clock and b. two pictures of a very similar clock recently on sale in Australia, but without Made in England below the 6.
