A Three Train Chiming Skeleton Clock with bells in the base. with bells in the base.Chiming clocks normally have bells on top to avoid the difficulties of re directing the chiming barrel connections. This was done to ensure the bells were heard better and to ensure the delicate lines of the clock were not compromised. Due to the backlash with the additional connections the last hammer will not always be at rest but this is accepted because of the huge benefits. The striking is also on a gong to preserve the clocks appearance. The jewels in the minute track are Cubic Zircon.
