This French IROD Clock is a two-chime wall clock from the 1920’s. Very art deco, isn’t it?
French IROD Two Chime Wall Clock
This was the first Westminster chime clock I dismantled. The movement is one of the best designed I have seen for a vintage Westminster chime clock.
Separated Movement Plates
The movement plates are separated into three separate plates enabling one to dismantle each train individually. For instance, if one wished to work on the strike train, you would only have to remove the plate that retains the wheels for that particular train. A brilliant concept.
A nice German box clock.
Typically, I don’t buy these clocks now as they do not hold much interest to me anymore. This one caught my attention because it is a Westminster Chime movement and the case is in exceptional condition.
The movement will require disassembling and cleaning, a task that I’m just not ready to do just yet. I have taken apart some Westminster Chime movements, most have been weight driven. This one looked to be a little challenging so, I’ll tackle it when I have time to devote if it becomes a total nightmare.
