For sale is a rare and beautiful little Tiffany & Co alarm clock with an Angelus 8 day SF240 movement in excellent operating condition for its 61 year age. It is housed within a red leather flip-out case. They are rare because not many were made in the first instance (compared to a plethora of other Angelus brass clocks with larger movements), rarer to find in good condition today and rarer again due to many having been stripped of their SF240 clock movement for DIY homage watch makers.This clock runs and alarm functions. Is 40mm x 40mm with a hinged red leather case that flips out as a stand. The case is not perfect but in remarkably clean condition with a few scratches and marks. Alarm, stem wind movement is operating and in remarkably good condition.
It has the original, correct 24 point convex Angelus crown and the movement is engraved with the Angelus Watch Co logo, Swiss, "15 Jewels unadjusted". The outer caseback is stamped with the Angelus logo, 15 jewels and there are watchmaker service inscriptions.The inner case back has Angelus Watch Co and Swiss stamping. The main plate is stamped 8.57, corresponding to August 1957 manufacture.
The balance cock has "NOV" engraved on it. The clock is missing the alarm adjusting knob. The movement should be serviced by a watchmaker as I'm sure it has not been serviced in a long time and sometimes runs fast. The gilt sword shaped hands are lumed and in good condition with light corrosion. The cream brushed dial is very clean with hour indices of gilt raised Arabic numbers and the dial is printed with "Tiffany & Co", with a square minute track around its perimeter.
There is a little lacquer chipped off the brass case around the beveled glass crystal. I have been an avid fan of Angelus watches and clocks for years. Founded by the Freres Brothers in Switzerland in 1891, they made some of the finest chronographs of their day and developed 8 day movements for an eclectic range of clock designs. A good guide to their history can be found. This alarm clock is in very good condition for its age, fully functioning and complete with the original red leather case in very good condition.
It should be serviced by a watchmaker to keep it in good running order. Please pay close attention to the photos as they form a key part of the description. The item "Angelus Alarm clock with SF240 stem-wind movement in red leather case" is in sale since Tuesday, June 11, 2019.
