Grayson TMS were commissioned to refurbish the exterior clock at Whiteley’s shopping centre. The old clock had cosmetically seen better days but was structurally sound; the original mechanical movements had long been replaced with mains mechanisms and had failed. The case needed a little repair work and the gold leaf had lost its lustre. Our engineers spent 4 weeks stripping the clock back to the base metal, treating and then repainting it, the gold leaf was renewed and the central dials were replaced with 5mm thick opal Perspex. We installed new GM50 mains impulse movements and refurbished the existing hands and re-bushed them to suit the new movements. A new illumination package was also installed. The use of a new Grayson GM2 master clock and GM14 radio receiver soon had the clock working again and back to its original splendour.
