    I am looking at the above captioned clock and the original works are missing.The dial has the two ports for the arbors but the F/S adjustment lever is accessed from the back of the case at the 12 o'clock position.
    Does anyone have a clue as to who made a balance wheel mechanism that the F/S is adjusted through an aperture at the back plate:???:
    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Bruce, are you talking ships bell clock?
    German makers for instance called almost all of their balance wheel wall clocks "marine clocks".
    Maybe you can show us the case.

    Possibly New Haven. I have their porcelain clock the Thistle. Time only with double winding arbors. The S/F lever is accessed by opening a round door. In a brass case, possibly the same movement could be used with an acess point through an aperture as you describe (if I am understanding you correctly. Let's see the pix. Below is what I have on the Thistle.

    This is strange. I see the slow-fast opening on the dial, right below the XII. My guess for the clock in the picture is that it has the ST#10 movement. We have seen a similar clock in this forum before.SUhralt
