Longcase grandfather clocks
A longcase clock, also known as tall-case clock, floor clock, or grandfather clock, is a freestanding, weight-driven pendulum clock with the pendulum held inside the tower, or waist of the case. The introduction of the pendulum movement in England in the 1650s heralded the great age of clock making in London. It was to prove a technological lead that remained virtually unchallenged throughout the 17th & 18th centuries.
Comitti’s longcase collection combines the finest features of hand crafted period cabinetwork with precision triple chime movements. Modern features such automatic night silencing of the chimes, automatic chime correction and automatic beat adjustment to synchronise the swing of the pendulum are included.
