    Hello,

    My friend has this eight day T/S Welch Patti. She believes that the pendulum is not original because it bears an Iron Cross. I speculate that the clock was manufactured as a special order or a special run.

    Can anyone shed light on the authenticity of the pendulum and how and why the pendulum bears an Iron Cross? Any information would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Gee, looks okay to me.

    I think it's meant to be the croix pattee (there's an accent aigu on the first e). It's a motif from Medieval art and heraldry?

    Why would the clock have a Croix Pattee? Would the clock be a special order or part of a regular run? The choice of the cross is intriguing. Most peculiar.
