Carbond are said to making instruments for Classic cars to the design of those Smiths’ dials once fitted to a great many British makes, using the original tooling. Sounds like good news, if they are as reliable as the Smiths’ dashboard clock I have, dating from the early 1920s, (it came from a 1914 Hispano Suiza) or a cheap Smiths’ stop-watch which, consigned to a forgotten drawer for in the 1950s, still functions perfectly. . . Also of commendable longevity is my Short & Mason clockwork barograph, used at Brooklands from 1907, no doubt to advise would-be record-bidders about the forthcoming weather, which still performs accurately.
