    How do you wind the lower calendar movement on a Boardman Hubble clock? The lower movement runs for a year. It has a hole on the lower right side so as to wind it with a long key. When the key tries to wind it, the rollers just rotates to the next days, but the small spring does not wind. Is it possible that there is a small part missing that helps to engage the winding of the spring?
    I will try to send a photo of the lower movement.

    you probably don’t... typically calendar clocks are triggered by a rod that runs from the main movement down to the calendar mechanism.

    do you have one? photos would help... can you see the lower/calendar movement w the door open?

    so you see the rod, yes? were you asking because it’s not working?
