We regularly receive inquiries here regarding the Floating balance found on many clocks today. In an attempt to start building some resources that we can refer our users to I have uploaded 3 videos. The purpose of the discussion here is by way of an experiment. Two areas of discussion. MB resource usage. 1.a. Do these tools work ? 1.b. Are they useful ? Horological content. 2. The video's show 3 oscillation degrees of rotation and 3 timekeeping rates. The three different rates were achieved singularly through deliberate changes intended to demonstrate the impact on timekeeping of degree's of rotation. Video #1 90 degree's shows a fast clock. Video #2 180 degree's shows a slow clock Video #3 360 shows a clock keeping excellent time. Sorry but the video is done on an older camera and not the best. The balance freely oscillates 90, 180, 360. In no instance was the regulator or the balance wheel adjusted to achieve these changes. Nor was the movement cleaned or oiled between changes. Simply put. This movement went from a common symptom of running fast, poor oscillation, to running slow with what may seem as "ok" oscillation to running perfect with 360 degree rotation. The point of the demonstration being to show how balance wheel oscillation impacts timekeeping and how one might confuse this symptom as needing to add or remove mass or make other changes away from an original factory setting.
