  • Vintage Time Recording Machine From Harland & Wolff Belfast

     Original Time Clock From Harland & Wolff Drawing Office

    Every so often we come across something that we consider to be truly exceptional. This may be due to its quality, age, history, uniqueness / rarity etc

    Well recently we bought what we consider to be an exceptional item. It’s an original early 20th century Time Recording Machine by Blick of London. It’s truly an iconic design, similar to the original IBM time Machines. It came from the drawing office of Harland & Wolff Ship builders in Belfast – the builders of the Titanic and so many other iconic vessels.

    I find this so interesting in so many ways. Firstly it’s just an amazing looking piece with its ornate cast Iron framing, clock dials, punch numbers and old oak case. It’s obvious that this item has been used which just ads to the piece. Then the fact that it has been an important machine (if you didn’t clock in, you didn’t get paid) and used for so long  by people who have been instrumental in designing and building some of the most iconic ships of the 20th century, such as the Titanic, HMS Belfast and SS Canberra, to name but a few.

    So give us a call if you are interested in Industrial art or history, Harland & Wolff, Historical items from Belfast, Vintage or antique Time recording Clocks or simply would like an amazing looking piece in your office office
