Hi Ray, My name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you. Most of the values of these clocks depends on condition. With todays market and prices realized checking with several auction houses such as Heritage and South Bend in good body and running condition $195.00 to excellent body and running condition $425.00. I listed a company below you can contact to get an idea of the cost to repair they work on Smith clocks. London Antique Clock Centre

 

 

 

In 1931 Smiths, then called S Smith and Sons (motor accessories) Ltd., decided to enter the domestic clock market and formed a new company, Smiths English Clocks Ltd., as the Clock and Watch division of S Smith & Sons (Motor Accessories) Ltd. with Cricklewood as the main factory.

Smiths were one of the first companies to produce synchronous electric clocks. These were put on the market towards the end of 1931. It seems that Smiths formed a subsidiary company called "Synchronous Electric Clocks Ltd" to produce these clocks as the first models are so marked.

 

Just for reference.
