Rosemary which first came into being in 2009, is a miniaturised version of the Great Wheel Skeleton Clock and was designed to include an integral bevelled glass case and base.

The pendulum is hung from a silk type suspension, which can be lowered and temporarily secured, making it ideal for presentation ceremonies.

The plates can be made any shape within the confines of the wheel train and personal engraving can be added to the plinth. Every part, except for the pallet, is made from either Gold or Platinum plated Brass or Stainless Steel, which will eliminate any tarnishing problems caused by high humidity.

Just like the Great Wheel Skeleton Clock, the Main Wheel has 288 teeth, which are cycloidal tooth form, and makes just one revolution daily. The escapement is a 'Graham Deadbeat' controlled by a 'silk' suspension and Invar pendulum. The movement is fitted with Maltese Cross stop work to achieve the most accurate timekeeping and the clock will run for a full 8 days.

HEIGHT: 27cm. WIDTH: 20cm. DEPTH: 10cm.

Great Wheel Skeleton Clock

The superb artistry which typifies the French Horologists of the late 18th Century seems to culminate in this beautiful clock. Deceptively simple, the restrained elegance serves to enhance the obvious craftsmanship inherent in such fine wheelwork with its delicate crossings and very high tooth count.

The frames, pierced out of solid Brass, are gracefully faceted, polished, and burnished to provide a gleaming support for the four-wheel train. The Great Wheel has 288 teeth and makes only one revolution daily. This drives the centre wheel with a diameter slightly larger than the bezel, thus, when viewed from the front, frames the silvered dial.

The escapement is a ‘Graham Deadbeat’ controlled by a ‘silk’ suspension pendulum and the whole requires winding once weekly. The movement is mounted on a slim, white marble or granite base to the customer's choice and is protected by a bevelled glass shade which has an opening door at the front.

Sinclair Harding offers two designs, a variation of the classic ‘Y’ frame French Skeleton Clock and the 'Arch' frame where the graceful curves of the frame legs are engraved with a simple yet elegant pattern.

HEIGHT: 40cm. WIDTH: 31cm. DEPTH: 16cm.
