• 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!

One of my favorite things about the clock is that the pressed brass lyre-form pendulum rod decoration is still present. A nice touch.

The movement is signed and has brass ribbed plates. I didn't take a picture as it is a fairly standard and pictured on the Forums and many standard accessible references including the Bulletin. What is a bit unusual, to me, is that if the strike gets out of cinque with the time, it may be advanced by lifting the strike hammer rather than the more standard method of pulling on or lifting a piece of metal wire. The other B&I clock that I recall having that method of strike advancement was one with smooth plates.

It is an 8 day clock with both complete original brass springs which gives the clock a surprising heft. It's the brass springs that make these movements interesting and how they fit into the evolution of manufactured spring driven clocks.

And they're available and affordable.
