    Function Any specs available on this movement?

    Howdy, all! My big question first (story time later). Does anyone have the adjustment target specs for this movement? (pic 1 - 2). It's an 8-day Gilbert "Columbia"-model wall clock with T&S. It seems to keep best time right around 101.5 bpm. "PAT.JAN 11 1870" is stamped in the front, in a...
