Vintage Mappin & Webb Brazilian agate desk clock, circa 1930. This vintage stone desk clock has a modern hexagonal Brazilian agate frame with original dial and a Swiss made 15 jewel eight day manual movement.
These vintage stone desk clocks are made entirely by hand. In some cases, fifteen different craftsmen are involved in the finished clock. The Brazilian agates are individually selected to harmonize with the vintage clock they are matched with.
The clock movements and cases are also individually chosen based on the maker shown on the dial and the Swiss factory that made the clock’s movement. Many of these movements were originally fitted into leather folding travel cases. Some that wound in the back were small desk clocks.
Each clock is restored by our team of master watchmakers using only factory original Swiss parts. They are designed to run for eight days but should be wound on the seventh day. It is important to accept that these are entirely mechanical clocks, and as such they cannot and will not keep time like a modern quartz desk clock. The agate stones are beveled and polished by a master gem cutter.
These stone desk clocks are designed to fit into any sophisticated environment and made well enough to last a lifetime.
