    Atmos Question

    Hello. I recently purchased an Atmos clock, the baby Atmos. It will run for 3 or 4 days then stop. Sometimes when it stops the minute hand will spin freely.

    Hello, Question on the minute hand. The minute hand has approx. +- 30 sec movement looks like just play between the gears.

    ST #1 Calendar

    Just up on the wall today. Last of the 4 clocks I purchased last month. I've always wanted a dbl dial calendar clock. I had to modify the non original pendulum so it could be adjusted w/o reaching your hand down inside the clock. So far it's working out nicely. Took me awhile to get the lift to...
