Barbera Baxter’s Vienna Regulator

Nice and easy for a change.

It was very strange how clean the whole movement was as I recieved it. It looked like it had just recently been serviced. It appears it had been serviced last in 1996 as a small inscription tells in the rear plate. Whoever it was over oiled it as the dribble stains were obvious. I am convinced it was the last repairer as the dribbles were still tacky.

The plates also seemed ‘scrubbed’ clean. Like with wire wool or something. Another inscription says 1906. So if 90 years had passed between services maybe scrubbing was needed??

The tips of the scape wheel are looking slighly worn/tired, I am considering giving them a little polish. ?
