Description

Vintage Metomac alarm clock with a white face and black hands and numbers. A 1950's 1960's mantlepiece clock. Metamec was a manufacturer of domestic clocks in the second half of the 20th century, and was based in Dereham, Norfolk, England. The name 'Metamec' is derived from 'metal-work and mechanics'. The company started as an offshoot of the furniture manufacturers Jentique, which made boxes for instruments and bombs during World War II. The first Metamec model was a mains-powered mantle clock numbered '701'. All clocks produced by Metamec were produced to a high standard, and the factory expanded with the purchase of new machines to allow them to create their own movements, rather than import the movements in from other clock companies. The factory increased in size during the 1960s and 70s, and employed approx. 750 people, producing 350 models of clock, and producing 25,000 clocks per week. Metamec was the largest clock manufacturer in the UK at the time.
