Classic Floor Clocks
Classic Floor Clocks – Technically called Longcase clocks but familiar to most as Grandfather clocks and Grandmother clocks, Those on offer at Clocks & Chimes come in a range of solid woods and wood finishes, each housing a quality German engineered mechanical movement. Many of these clocks have chime mechanisms playing melodies such as Westminster chimes – synonymous with British clock making and of course Big Ben.
Some clocks have other chimes options, mainly Whittington or St. Michael’s chimes, and most have a night silent facility, perfect if you’re a light sleeper. All our clocks have a silent lever and all have automatic beat adjustment for easy set up and to maintain regular time.
Longcase Clocks – Grandfather clocks tend to be over 1.5m or 6ft tall, while those under 1.5m or 6ft are known as Grandmother clocks. More on longcase clocks
