Morbier movement – A Modern Dutch Classic

One of my favorite clocks is a modern Morbier. I love the Morbier movement. I first featured it in this entry:  http://duetime.wordpress.com/morbier-grandfather-clock/.  This newer movement is practically identical in design to the early Morbiers. This simple clock is a design classic in my opinion. I think of it as the VW of clocks, a clock for the people.

This clock was made in Holland by a small company that manufactures handmade Morbier clocks. This one is not old…..Vintage at best. This was the perfect solution for me. I have a vintage clock with a solid oak case. The real appeal to me is the movement. It is like a miniature ‘tower clock’ movement,  over-engineered and as accurate as my jewelers regulator….I love it!

    Hi! I have a Gledhill-Brook Time Recorder SN 67599. I do not have a use for it, so I would like to sell it or get it to someone who could use it or appreciate it. It is in great condition.
