    For those with experience transporting Bulle clocks, what is the recommended way to secure the pendulum?

    In contrast to Junghans or KundO electromagnetic clocks the Bulles don´t have a pendulum locking device.So take a piece of tissue paper , crumple it and insert it into the interstice between the central (magnetic) rod and the inside of the solenoid all around so that the solenoid doesn´t touch the rod . See that You don´t stress the textile suspension spring! That´s the safe way it worked for me.

    Thanks for the recommendation Burkhard. Tried the tissue paper trick and it works fine. The other obvious thing to do is disconnect the battery.
