Antique Swiss desk or mantel clock, retailed by J. E. Caldwell & Co., of Philadelphia. A very well known retailer of quality items. The solid walnut case has spectacular original finish with exceptional hand inlay work. NO damage to the case or inlay, circa 1900. Clock is 9 1/4" long, 5 1/2" tall, 2 3/4" deep with a large 3 1/2" diameter dial. The clock sits on 4 original brass ball feet and is flanked with two original cast brass finials. The original dial is marked Swiss Made and name of the retailer Caldwell & Co. The brass bezel holds a convex glass crystal.
The original Swiss movement was well beyond repair; entirely too many missing parts to restore. It is now fitted with a new German quartz movement with the center sweep second hand feature. The clock is accurate to within a few seconds a month. Battery NOT included. I can install a new battery for $5. The clock has no audible ticking sound it is perfect for a Executives desk or even as a bedside clock. See photos.
I have a large selection of restored inlaid desk clocks with their original movements listed. One of 80 Antique Clocks to choose from.

This is one of several very nice decorative antique wall clocks and desk clocks with quartz movements. These few pieces are exceptional looking even though the clock movements could not be restored. The wall clocks are slave clocks and could not operate with out a large Master clock. To make them functional they have been converted to a high quality quartz battery movement.
