    Mora Clock Movement Time and Alarm

    The clocks from Mora were more or less mass produced by local specialised makers working at their farmhouses. The different parts were then assembled by a clockmaker who sometimes put his name on the movement or dial. I belive the Kock family clocks were made by one clockmaker in his workshop...

    Mora Clock Movement Time and Alarm

    An additional comment: I don't think you need gut line or wire. The countryside movements used ordinary string so a good quality clock line will do.

    Mora Clock Movement Time and Alarm

    Hi Mick, The clocks from Mora usually have white painted iron dials. Therefore I think that your clock movement is not from Mora. Your movement is definitely more interesting than a Mora movement. From 1727 until 1907 there were four generations of part time clockmakers living in Karlskoga...

    Marine clock with chronometer escapement and striking

    Interesting information in your thread about Seth Thomas adding a second fence on the great wheel in 1879 model. It is definitely needed. The spring will develop and get blocked against the pillars in my movement. The locomotive lever chronometers that I have seen on picture are time only and...

    Marine clock with chronometer escapement and striking

    Just a short follow up. The movement seems to have been used in clocks from the following clock factories: Waterbury Clock company Ansonia Clock Co Seth Thomas Henry J Ham Jr. (movement stamped E. N. Welch) However it seems that no one knows who made the movements so it will remain a "Mystery...

    Marine clock with chronometer escapement and striking

    Thank you Steven for the reference to Lee Smiths article. They are certainly very similar. Looking closely the hole for the lever pivot can be found on my movement and there is an extra hole near the escape wheel pivot. It looks as my movement is based on the lever movement in figure 41 but has...

    Marine clock with chronometer escapement and striking

    Among clocks and parts donated to our club in Stockholm was this movement. It was very rusty but the escapement caught my eye. As you can see from the photos it has got a kind of pivoted detent chronometer escapement. The rest of the movement looks like a standard marine clock with striking. The...

    Waltham 1908 grade 645 setting mechanism parts

    As far as I can see there are no extra marks from case screws. I guess clients could choose any case if they insisted. There are many scratchings from previous repairs on the back but if they relate to this movement is hard to tell. The case is gold plated but unfortunately slightly worn on the...

    Waltham 1908 grade 645 setting mechanism parts

    Now it is back together and just as you said, setting lever does work. Since the pendant could be pulled and pushed in I never looked for the setting lever under the bezel. Well next time I will look. Thank you for a helpful answer. Anders

    Waltham 1908 grade 645 setting mechanism parts

    Thank you for the answer. That is strange. I am not very familiar with American watches so I may be mistaken but as it looks today it seems to use the negative set. On the dial side is the lever that I understand should allow you to hold the mechanism in winding mode when out of the case.

    Waltham 1908 grade 645 setting mechanism parts

    Hi folks. I recently bought a watch ser no 17166590 that I have identified as a model 1908 grade 645. The setting mechanism allways stays in winding position. The mechanism especially the spring does not look like the pictures describing how to assemble the setting mechanism of a grade 620 I...

    Post your Nicholas Muller clocks here

    Re: Help me identify this clock Thank you Steven and Harold for your comments. The spring is located between the plates in the normal way. I agree that the movements look very similar. The only difference I can see is the placement of the verge retainer that Steven pointed out already. If I had...
