    Mario, you can add multiple pictures to one post. It would help to keep things more manageable on the BB
    A man with a clock always knows the time. A man with two clocks is never sure.

    Is this the same clock you already posted about, or a different one. We need more details.

    Mario, thanks for the additional photos. However, please note that you can post up to 10 photos in each post, which makes it much easier for us to see what you are presenting. If you need assistance for this there is an instruction thread at the top of each forum how to use our photo posting system.

    I was hoping the photo of the back of your movement would be clear enough to see the serial number, however I presume the actual number is what was written on a paper that you posted. Based on that serial number, your movement was made in the January-March quarter of 1904. I notice the pendulum length stamp (P 65.5) on the back of the movement shows it is 65.5 cm long, which indicates this movement was most likely made to be mounted in a large Vienna regulator case instead of a medium size grandfather case.

    It appears that the case for your clock was made by a craftsman or hobbyist (not by the GB factory) some time later than the movement was made. It is a traditional design and has a generally pleasing appearance, however there are not any designs like this one in any of the GB sale catalogs available. There are a number of indications of hand-made assembly and finish; for example the mounting of the movement support bracket is on a raised plank of modern grooved wood and not directly on the back board of the case. The dial also appears to be from a later period than the movement, likely by 20-30 years. However, the hands are correct and fit the dial.

    Mario, your clock has a beat adjuster at the bottom of the crutch which is adjusted almost as far as it will go to one side in your photo. I would adjust it back to the middle of the crutch and then set the beat by holding the pallets with one hand and gradually moving the crutch, allowing it to slip on the arbor, until the clock is in beat. When it is in beat, you will hear the tick at approximately the same distance from the center of the pendulum swing on the left side and the right side. Once you reach that point, it is easy to adjust the beat with that adjuster on the bottom of the crutch. It should keep running once you get it perfectly in beat.
