And a great night it was. Thanks for your time and effort in bringing these amazing timepieces down to show the WCA members and teach of there colourful past and incredible ownership.
I remember meetings at Strathfield laboratories where the once master clock for NSWGR was located. From memory the pendulum was regulated by electro magnets? I was told there was once almost thirty watch makers working in the NSWGR, now there are none. Ironic given that standard time came about because of the need to have a uniform system of time across the rail network
Where was the clock in the photo made? According to the "Antique Road Show" many eary retailers put their names on the face of the clocks they sold? From memory the clock in Sydney town hall tower was made in England. I last wound it in 1959.
Can't ever remember a clock in the dashboard of a car. They must have been in upmarket cars? That the clock illustrated lasted 8 days on one windup, absorbed roadshocks and still kept good time suggests that they were a good quality clock?
