Purchased from an online marketplace.....disassembled with no pendulum, and top slate loose. This S. Marti & Cie, Medialle De Bronze, clock with open escapement has been an enjoyable clock to bring to life. I found a pendulum online...just came today and clock is ticking...it will take some time to see about its regulation. In any event, the strike on gong, on the hour and half hour is pleasant. Still not sure if I am happy with the slate showing some gray spots and a faint stain from some object being placed on it...but mechanically it appears to be fine. One thing is for sure....I won't be moving it often.
