  • Product Info

    This is a most unusual clock because of its case decoration. Normally, Paul Garnier, whose name appears on the enamel dial made these 'Tole' metal clocks in plain colours, red for the French Military, blue for the Navy and green for important restaurants and brasseries in the late 1890's. This one no longer has its original movement and we have fitted it now with a quartz mechanism to give perfect timing while retaining all its outward appearance. That is except the decoration on the casing, which will have been done quite a number of years ago and has a sort of Swedish look to it.  The dial is protected by a convex glass fitted to the brass bezel and this brings the beauty of the enamel dial into focus. The quartz movement, of course, guarantees perfect timing. I always try to find these clocks by Paul Garnier, as I think they are very elegant.They always appeal to classic styling Interior Designers
