Mechanical clock movement beat-setting means the tick and the tock sound of the clock are even. In order to run, every mechanical clock that has a pendulum needs to be put in beat. It is amazing how many clocks have not run for 10 years or more just because this is not known. Often, clocks in tag sales, auctions, and… View Product

A pendulum assembly consists of the suspension spring at the top, the leader that hangs on it, and then the pendulum. Usually mechanical clock pendulum makers are not movement makers… View Product
