We have commissioned one of our brass manufacturers to produce a solid brass dome to suit the wind-up Dereve door bell. The end result with our unique dome has a more pleasing delicate quality ring and the resonation also lasts longer once the button has been released. We offer a choice of finishes, so please select your desired finish from the drop-down.
You will also need to select your desired bell push from our choice of specially converted bell pushes. Please note that the barrel of the door bell push will need to be recessed into the door by approx 20mm with a diameter of approx 24mm.
These simple English made wind-up door bells are made and look just as they did back in the 1960's. They are mechanically operated, and require no batteries, wiring or electricity. They are usually positioned on the door itself for optimum performance, and are not suitable for wall mounting.
Just remember to wind them up occasionally and providing they have not been over-wound, they will give long lasting reliable, maintenance free service.
We have tested a sample bell from stock to see how long it would ring after being fully wound. We were impressed at the results of 80 seconds which equates to many callers using the bell......
The clockwork bell mechanism is operated by a thin rod (only requiring a 5mm diameter hole) that passes through the door to a matching bell push button on the outside. The rod is adjustable upon installation for a wide range of different door materials and thicknesses, but where doors are particularly thick, we can supply longer rods. When the button is pressed the rod activates the bell and it will continue to ring for as long as the button is pressed.
Normally simply mounted on the door, this bell will give a strong sound as the door helps to resonate the sound which should be sufficient to let you know you have a visitor.
Diameter: 80mm
Projection: 38mm
For use on doors up to at least 60mm thick
Fitting Instructions: available here.

Not recommended, failed after 6 months, 8th Jun 2020

Reviewer: David S

After circa 6 months, the bell stopped ringing.

When I rang customer support they asked me how many times I wound it up, as overwinding was a frequent error, and I couldn't recall, they said I would have to buy either a new mechanism (if I could get the dome off) or a whole new bell.

To their own admittance, the manufacturers instructions are to only wind the bell up 'occasionally'

So, either be very VERY careful when winding the bell and ideally note down the number of turns you make or video yourself winding it up, or simply don't buy this product. I'd recommend the latter!

Love this bell!, 9th May 2020

Reviewer: Carol K

This is a wonderful bell: no need for wiring with loud, strong ring. Easy to install. Looks great on our door alongside the matching letterbox and Edwardian bell push (all from Broughtons). This is the second of these that we have purchased and we have recommended to friends.
Broughtons provided great service- friendly and very quick delivery.

Windup bell, 22nd Nov 2019

Reviewer: Tracy M

We purchased this bell to replace an old original bell that had stopped working. This a great product, arrived very quickly, and was very easy to fit to our door. We went with the polished brass finish and it looks great. Very happy overall.

Great bell, 10th Jun 2019

Reviewer: Karen R

So sustainable and an attractive addition to any front door! Love the semi matt finish on this bell so much better quality than the white I bought a few years ago off ebay. Thanks
