Would anyone know if a Chelsea U.S. Navy ship clock (time only) is orientation sensitive? I've finished servicing it but it seems to only want to run in the horizontal plane. As soon as I hang it on the wall it stops. Put it flat... away it goes without error. It has a very sophisticated platform lever escapement but so do most high end clocks and I've never heard of them only running correctly while laying flat. Thoughts?
