    I bought something recently, Crane 30 days with torsion pendulum weight Driven clock.
    I know that this is a rare specimen, unfortunately there is no mechanism, just thre balls pendulum. I would like to build a replica although I want to build it. If someone has such, please ask for PM

    Jan,

    Crane made some really strange stuff. There is a book, Aaron Dodd Crane An American Original, by Frederick Shelley, published by the NAWCC. It isn't all inclusive but I think it shows a few pictures of what movement you should be looking for.

    Do you have the dial? The positions of the winding holes will help determine the movement.

    I have saved two of the broken up dials by soaking the paper off the back of the glass and then applying it to a new glass, predrilled of course.
