Clock Number 3 – Hunting themed Bracket Clock

Completed: 2003

Buchanan’s second commissioned piece, with a specific theme – The English Hunt.

In true Buchanan Style this clock is a combination of fine Gold Plated Brass work, exquisite timber and genuine silver containing Buchanan’s own  registered London Assay Office Hallmark. Perhaps one of the most visually stunning clocks by Buchanan yet. Standing  420 mm tall it is both impressive and refined.

At the rear of the clock two solid silver shotguns stand which bear Buchannan’s own London Hallmark.
Engraved cartouches at each corner of the base show different hunting scenes
A Mechanical Thermometer and Barometer display temperature and humidity on solid silver dials situated below the main dial.
Decorative engraving is extensive.
Details of the upper dial shows the engaved bezel silver chapter ring and lever escapement.The escapemnt is driven by an internal toothed wheel and the balance spring was given a Breguet style overcoil reflecting.
Silver pheasants stand side by side on the top gazing at their reflection in the engine turned centre piece.
