    Mauthe pendulum wall clock losing about 2 to 3 minutes per week

    This is time to make new servicing. Probably better to do it every ~3 years I believe.

    Wow a Vienna Regulator!

    I have some experience to solder two broken parts of the rod with regular solder, so it was not shorten. The small part can be screwed out rather easily. The point of connection was firm more or less, however if it can be soldered with brass allow - it will be best I believe.

    Wow a Vienna Regulator!

    New chime is an always option. But rods can be repaired, they are easily soldered. And probably and hopefully if soldered carefully tunes will not flow away far. This is a challenge, You right.

    Middle one is a Mauthe. First one I have seen kienzle in similar case, but better to look at movement.

    Post your Dutch wall clocks here

    Good find. I believe that aluminum is a replacement in 20th century. No justification for using this metal here. And all dial was repainted in that time I think. Clock are from 18th century, probably first half.

    English C.Shepherd, 53'Leadenhall str. London bracket clock

    Let me push up this thread. Coming back to some lost parts. It looks as second strike system, but smaller one... As this was Shepherd's clock - could these holes hold some electrical parts (kind of contactor). Did anyone see such things on other clocks?

    MAJAK (USSR mfg) desk clock

    As I catched from some russian videos you should just gently pull the bezel off (still no video with removing itself - sorry). Normally you should not bent those 3 rivets before you remove the bezel. Using some plastic sharp things as levers applying them in the points where those 3 rivets are...

    Interesting French escapement ca. 1730

    Ralph, I just not agree with You if you see there pallet faces. Theare no pallet faces on the anchor). That's why this is pure Graham in nature. And for sure this works only if EW goes teethes faces forward.

    Interesting French escapement ca. 1730

    I don't agree, more looks like tooth pushes edges of the anchor. So this is flipped Graham. It fould be flipped Broccot if teethes was rounded on the ends but it is not the case. I could say that this close to Swiss type... but still no, this is poor Graham... Also there could be really no...
