• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Dear Fellow Clock Collectors, I wanted to know if anyone can give me information on this French Wall clock. It has a typical French style steel pillar "Comtoise" movement with alarm on the side of the movement. It has three weights; the time and strike weights are very large and heavy, and the alarm weight is small. I only have a picture of the front of the clock. It does have two bells on the top of the movement and has an anchor escapement.

Are there pulleys in the top of the weights?
