    Default A Reproduction Horolovar Rotary Pendulum Clock

    Hello everyone,

    Just pick up one Horolovar Rotary Clock. It's reproduction but I think not Chinese copy because it has Made in Germany on the dial. I don't know the maker as no stamp on the back etc. I don't know if there somewhere on the movement plate (behind). On the top plate just saying "BRIGGS ROTARY PENDULUM CLOCK, US PATENT AUG 1855, HOROLOVAR REPRODUCTION". It's in working order but because of the line too long, I need to put a paper to lift the ball. Will adjust it later. The dome is in very good condition and high quality (very thick).

    Thanks Scottie-TX.. Yes it's very nice. I'm glad won that for £59 (including comission). I don't know whether considered expensive or not for reproduction. but sure I like to watch it. I can't afford to own French Mystery Conical Pendulum. Unless got lucky enough..

    they usualy go much higher,so Congrats!I drive mine with a piece of surgical thread,works fine.They were ordered from different german makers in batches,mine bears the logo of Mathias Bšuerle.After TLC they keep to ca.3min per week,not too bad for a novelty clock.

    I have just open the box (after more than one month in the container). Because of the line to long, I took off the line and refitted. Now the problem is, ball swing too strong and over than the needle and touching the glass. Anyone can help me to make the ball keep swinging along the needle? Thank you.

    The needle (or rod) is straight. Should I bent the road to be like a little bit 'J' hook? Previously it's working fine with straight rod.

    definitely NOPE.It is designed to work with a staight pin,and it did work with it,so the fault must be looked for somewhere else.Like in a recoil escapement these Briggs reproductions depend heavily on an even transmission of power.Iīd propose a full service incl. the mainspring which will probably resolve the problem.HTH
