The Mayfair is based on a timepiece originally made in France, an elegant design popularly referred to as the ‘Great Wheel’. During the Victorian period these skeleton clocks became very fashionable, particularly due to their prominence at the Great Exhibition in 1851. The simplicity of the movement is achieved by omitting a wheel and making compensating changes to the gear train. The handmade fusee movement is available with a choice of gold or rhodium plated finishes. Please view the finish options below.
