Hello I've just joined today. I have a small silver clock and do not know how much it is worth. Makers mark is S Blanckensee and I believe the hall mark is Chester 1910. It measures approx 2.5 x 2.00 inches. It is really pretty. Any ideas please? Paula

Wound it up at 10.00am this morning and it's still going strong. Paula

a clock like that should have at least a five day mechanism. If it doesn't last that long, it probably needs the coil changing and a service, which might cost 60 - 100.

Running properly, its worth around 350
