• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

    Gap in mounting bracket, is it normal?

    I have a Gustav Becker Regulator clock I acquired recently. When I put the weights on, the top of movement tilts forward about a half inch so I took it apart and discovered there is a bend in the bracket that holds the movement which allows the movement to tilt forward at the top. Does anyone...

    A.Willmann & Co Regulators

    Great thank you. I did google "GMS", didn't realize it was a "D" since the bar was missing or may have worn off. Thanks for the information.

    A.Willmann & Co Regulators

    I am thankful for these forums, based on this thread I was able to identify the maker of this clock as A.Willmann & Co. I'm curious if anyone knows the significance of the marking on the pendulum bar (looks like a backward "C" followed by "GMS") or the stamp at the bottom that says 1.MILLION.

    Wire gauge for Gustav Becker clock

    Sure, here's a picture of the works. Unfortunately while trying to untangle the fishing line I found that one of the rods that's used by the key to wind (sorry I don't know the technical term yet) has about a half inch broken off and I had to wind manually. So now it looks like I have to...

    Wire gauge for Gustav Becker clock

    Greetings. Avid clock collector here and this is my first post. I bought a Gustav Becker 2 weight regulator clock at auction and am in the process of restoring it. Based on the serial number I believe it was manufactured between 1885 and 1890. The wires that hold the weights were replaced...
