GPO Red Factory Clock Arabic Numerals
The GPO Red Factory Clock with Arabic numerals is a faithful recreation of General Post Office clocks. These Synchronome clocks would have hung in sorting offices across Britain. The vibrant red is synonymous with the Post Office and make a splendid red wall clock for the home.
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 features a stand-alone quartz movement.
Each GPO Red Factory Clock with Arabic numerals is individually built to order by hand and as such are delivered from the brand themselves. Each red wall clock has its own distinguishing features, arising out of the artisanal nature of the components.
