Talking of Gordon England

Has anyone come across one of these before?

That’s an interesting clock. Is it made by Smiths?

Rim wound or rear wind( with swing out case)?

It winds on the the little knob sticking out of the rim which also adjusts the hands if pulled out a bit.
It doesn't look like any of the more normal Smiths clocks that I have come across in the past.
Was it produced for Gordon England Saloons? Or as an extra available for discerning customers to add to their dashboards?

Rob,

perhaps it may have been fitted to something like this?

Wow. That's a thought.
Have you ever come across one on the dash of a Seven?

I personally have not but somebody may have - it is certainly an interesting item, is it yours? Do you know any history to it?

The three clocks in three GE Saloon dashes I've seen in photos all have no rim knob... and a prominent logo underneath the centre of the hands. If anyone has a close up picture of Bernard Griffiths' Sunshine dash from a car show, I suspect that may reveal the logo...

It came from a family who owned Rolls-Royce motorcars primarily. I'm pretty sure they never had a Seven but you never know! I bought it last year.
