A Clock at Tooting Bec Station

Tooting Bec station on the London Underground has two of these clocks.

Tooting Bec Station Clock

It would appear that someone has the good sense to keep them working.  Whether it is still the original movement I do not know.

They are labeled Self Winding Clock Co of New York.  You will find quite a few references to these clocks on the Internet, but only a short article about the actual company on Wikipedia.

I’ve travelled extensively on the London Underground, but I’ve only seen these two clocks.  There may be others.

  1. I like your clock picture. Odd that a clock from New York ends up at Tooting Bec.

  2. I don’t travel that way very often. I just wonder if any of the other stations on the Northern Line have the same clocks.
