Richard Good & Son, Seaford, England
- A TRIPLE-AXIS TOURBILLON CARRIAGE TIMEPIECE
CIRCA 1979 NO 1
The creation of this extraordinary clock was described and illustrated in The Horological Journal, April 1983, pp. 15-19. Seth Atwood, the owner of the Time Museum, was so impressed by the present lot that he commissioned Richard and Timothy Good to make an eight-day marine chronometer with triple-axis tourbillon for the Time Museum (see the previous lot). That piece was completed in 1981 and was on display until the museum closed.
It is believed that these are the only two examples of Triple Tourbillon timepieces made by Richard Good and his son Timothy.
