Weights

The weights are replacements, but aren’t they lovely? That’s one thing about being a clock collector and repairman: you end up with a lot of extra parts. When it comes to gears and springs, that’s no big deal. Even pendulums, you can find a long draw for. But weights – Heavens to Betsy! Weights are, well – duh! – heavy!

Unusual Chime

This clock is a little unusual in that it strikes the hours on a ‘chime rod’ as opposed to a coil gong which was typically used on this type of Vienna wall clock.

  1. I have a Regulator clock with one weight and a pendulum, it loses time and I not sure how to adjust it. It has a point on the pendulum that swings backwards and forward with a small type wheel for turning, which I think is for adjusting, which way should I be turning.
