Family heirloom clock


A 1940’s german mantle clock.

My dad gave this to me recently. It was completely black inside, dust, cobwebs, the lot. I have given it a proper service. I took my time examining the pivot holes, side-shake, escapement, etc. It has polished up lovely apart from the barrels as I have not checked the springs yet. But I will. It is now (as you see) on test, out of its case.

It is quite a good little movement. The anchor is the solid polished type. Everything on it works good and uncomplicated.

I have oiled it correctly and synchronised the chiming side correctly.

There’s still a little hiccup with the strike… maybe its not warning right. But its too late in the day now to investigate.
