British Museum Clock Roman Numerals
The British Museum Clock with Roman Numerals is a faithful recreation of the two all-black Synchronome clocks that still hang in the British Museum. The two original Synchronome all-black wall dials are in rooms 38/39 of The British Museum, connected to a master clock.
Synchronome were one of the classic British clock manufacturers. Founded in 1895, they unfortunately ceased trading many years ago. They supplied the BBC, The London Underground, Cunard, Liberty's and The Times. But in 2021 Mark Hope-Jones the founder's great-great-great-nephew resurrected the classic British brand.
These meticulously crafted recreations have the same all-metal construction and vintage industrial feel, but feature a stand-alone quartz movement. Each British Museum Clock with Roman Numerals is individually built to order by hand and as such is delivered from the brand themselves. Each black wall clock has its own distinguishing features, arising out of the artisanal nature of the components.
