Sneak Peek: Westmont Bracket Clock

We are pleased to announce the Westmont Bracket Clock, which has been given the official “go ahead” to proceed as a Klockit clock kit product. But before heading to the Klockit website to look up this beautiful gem, understand it’s still in the product development stage. However, we can certainly tantalize you with an exclusive preview!

This clock assembly features laminate-assembly base plates. When assembled, the combined plates create a gradually diminishing classical roman profile of coves with bead. westmont

The trim and end cap pieces promote a modest, yet stylish, ogee profile which gives way to single vein columns that frame the clock face opening in symmetric sophistication. A removable case back panel allows for quick and easy access to the clock movement within.

The result? Finished design perfection.

We have selected an elegant European-style clock face, with glass and hinged bezel to compliment the warm, natural hue of the solid cherry wood case assembly. While the initial premise of many new Klockit designs is to allow customers their choice of movement, the Westmont will prove to be no exception.

We plan to offer two different versions: A battery-operated quartz version (see #12001 for movement features) and a Westminster chime mechanical movement version (see #13006 for movement features). Both movements offer rich chimes and quality timekeeping that will continue to please throughout the many years you will enjoy this heirloom clock assembly.

There is plenty more to comment and compliment about this new kit assembly, which should be making its way to customers about mid 2013!
