    A friend of mine is going to look at one of these in the next day or two and we were trying to find out some info on it, before seeing it.

    The fellow who owns it, thinks it is an electric clock....but the picture he sent, doesn't show a pendulum in it. It's a wall clock, looks to be around 30" tall.

    I'm wondering if the electromechanical aspect of it is for solenoids to time record a watchman's rounds.

    Any info appreciated.

    Thanks, Ralph

    Oh, I forgot. The name on the glass calls the clock "Le Grande"

    I don't have a pix at this time. I know a picture would help immensely.

    Thanks Ralph
