"GENT of Leicester" clocks

Hello,

I recently bought a large (working) mains electric (240V; 50Hz) analogue wall clock marked with "GENT of Leicester". In a shop yesterday, I saw another GENT clock that was mains electric (I think) and it had a more "modern" GENT logo.

Are the clockmakers "GENT" still in existence? How old do you think my GENT electric clock is? Can anyone provide any information about the company itself?

Pictures of the front of my clock and the clock movement can be found at this web address http://members.aol.com/davidwa8t/gentclock.htm

Thanks,
David.
