Justin's son Benjamin (1747-1811) began a numbering system for their clocks in around 1780 and this was continued by his son, Benjamin Lewis, who maintained that all clocks should be numbered and dated to provide a concrete history of the clock. Unfortunately, this idea was not always carried through but, in the case of the present clock, the date of 1843 is boldly engraved on the backplate.
This exceptional timepiece is of the highest quality throughout and may well have been a special commission or even an exhibition piece.
