As some of you who visit our site regularly may have noticed, our Gledhill Brook Time Recorder posts have received far and away more traffic, questions, and queries than any posts about any of our other clocks. We, therefore, felt there was call for a site dedicated exclusively to these timepieces. So, we have created a sort of Gledhill Brook fan site.
A Gledhill Brook Fan Site
GledhillBrook.Com is an infant right now, but we hope to continually add to it, both as we ourselves do more research and as we recieve information from other GB lovers around the world.
Gledhill Brooks Time Recorder. 1930.
This was a complete case and movement restoration. It is a Gledhill Brook Time Recorder clock with Empire fusée movement . (Simplex, Ltd., bought out Gledhill Brook in 1964). It’s made in England. I have completed everything except the face
which will have to be sent for restoration by a professional. Gledhill Brooks are widely regarded as the finest Time Recorders built and the only Company to fit their machines with ‘Fusee’ clock movements.
They were all of eight day duration and very good time keepers. The recorder mechanism in this one is in perfect working condition. I recall having to fabricate one of the control rods that connect the clock movement to the time recorder unit.
