The inside count wheel, hour-striking movement has five knopped and ringed pillars and anchor escapement. The 12 in brass dial is signed on the silvered and engraved chapter-ring and has a matted center with subsidiary date indication and seconds’ ring.

John Stephens was based in St Bride’s Parish, City of London in the early 1730s. His will (dated October, 1736) can be seen in the National Archives, Kew.
