Enfield Boardroom Clock. 1930’s (I think.)

I have researched this Enfield Boardroom Clock extensively and have not been able to come up with very much information on it.

Enfield was purchased by Smiths; this is well documented. boardroommovementHowever, I have never been able to find out exactly when the name ‘Enfield’ stopped appearing on clocks and ‘Smith Enfield’ was used.

I have not seen another like it. If anyone reading this can enlighten me further I would appreciate the input. I have done very little to this clock other than strip down the movement and clean it.

The clock has a couple of unusual features; the top of the clock slides off like a hood and exposes the entire movement for maintenance and adjustment (very cool!). The weights, pendulum and chains are all chrome plated. This is very unusual for tall-case clocks such as this, even in the ‘art deco’ period. I have only seen chrome on wall clocks and some mantel clocks.

Of fascinating note, thanks to one of our readers, Brian, we have images of the manual for this clock.
