The carriage clock is such a treasure of a timepiece that it took 19th century England by storm. Compact, practical and attractive, these clocks have this rare ability to blend so harmoniously into almost any setting of domestic scene. This is why they probably captured the imagination of a wide public so distinctly than any other timepiece at the time.
It's certainly important to note that a carriage clock is not something that suddenly appeared on the scene, but has rather evolved through the years to finally become what we see today. In fact at some point it served as a pendules d’officier, a wonderful little clock that Napoleon’s generals took on military campaigns. These clocks were portable and featured a convenient carrying handle.
Thanks to the ‘evolution’, we now have today's master-timepieces whose finest representation is tastefully selected by Expressions of Time and now available at clockshoppes.com under the Bracket & Carriage category. You’ll find clocks featuring beautiful wood cabinets, German-made mechanical key-wind movements, as well as quartz, battery operated movements.
