While making the design of a new clock we were inspired by the Trinity College Clock is an historic clock in Trinity College, Cambridge. King Edward's Gate, in Trinity Great Court, otherwise known simply as the clock-tower, is one of the oldest buildings in the college. The first clock appears to have been installed in 1610 by Thomas Tennant, of London. The bell has survived to this day and bears the inscription: TRINITAS IN UNITATE RESONAT 1610. RICARDUS HOLD FELD ME FECIT. In 1726 – 1727 the clock mechanism was given to the village of Orwell, Cambridgeshire when the master, Richard Bentley, provided a new clock and dial plate and three bells. It is noted for striking the hour twice, first on a low note (the 'Trinity' chime) and then a higher one (the 'St John's' chime). In 1910 this eighteenth-century clock was replaced with a mechanism by Smith of Derby to a design by Lord Grimthorpe. The clock is governed by a temperature-compensated pendulum 2 metres in length driven by a three-legged gravity escapement. It is a remarkable instrument, capable of keeping time to better than one second in a month without any intervention.
Upon request the clock can be personalized with a text engraving, which will neatly supplement the look of the clock face.
