  • Inspired by the clock in the North-West tower this beautiful mechanical watch on a leather strap has been exclusively designed for Westminster Abbey. The face of the watch has been designed to mirror the design of the single hand clock that can be seen on the North-West Tower with its beautiful ornate detailing. The back of the watch is partially glazed to allow the mechanical movement to be seen. The watch comes in a gift box. The clock in the North-West tower was installed in 1738, although the western towers were not fully completed until 1745. The clock was made and installed by James Seddon, at a cost of £140. At that time it was common for tower clocks to only have an hour hand. It is surmised that the design of the dial was by the architect of the towers, Nicholas Hawskmoor, judging from the stone equivalent of the dial set in the other tower.
