Wood has a range of colours, grains and finished lustre and when it is combined with a precision engineered mechanical movement, and transformed into a quality piece of furniture, it becomes a functional and enchanting acquisition and a treasure to appreciate.
Tom Harris Clocks design philosophy is to look back at traditional styles of clocks, such as Vienna Regulators, which have given pleasure to previous generations, and to translate the qualities and appeal of these past classics into clocks with a contemporary look that will compliment the modern home, office or reception area.
In bringing these designs to life and achieve a contemporary appearance, a combination of wood, glass and inlays is used. The wood throughout the construction of the clock cases is solid hardwoods from sustainable British sources and the glass panels are 4mm thick toughend glass, for extra safety; these superior cases are complemented with the finest engineered movements, from German manufacturers who are leaders in their field.
In combining the beauty of natural woods, inlays and glass together with a precision engineered mechanical movement, a clock is produced that maintains excellent time and is of a finished quality that is a delight to look at, a pleasure to own and with care, can become an heirloom piece for future generations
Furthermore, at around 1m in height (approx 3ft), a Tom Harris Clocks – Wall Clock sits comfortably in today’s room sizes, as a beautiful and elegant piece of furniture; and for those searching for that ever elusive “relaxation”, the regular swing of the pendulum and the subtle sound of the mechanical movement is thought to have a soothing influence on the observer.
