• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

This is my first post. I came across two partial movements (at least one was made by Seth Thomas. The unique feature is that both drive springs drive the same gear simultaneously. Perhaps to extend the time somehow. also, there is 1:1 PTO output. The. Any feedback on this would be appreciated the The frame is 7.5" by 5.5"

there are multiple variants of this double-wind time-only movement used in gallery and a couple of tall case clocks... another way of providing maintaining power (while you're winding one side, the other side is still powering the movement).

forgot to mention it’s not just a seth thomas thing… i’ve got two welch spring and co. regulator 2s and an atkins 30 day w upside down movement… although to be fair wsc probably provided the movement to atkins. :). my ansonia general and rosedale (now sold) were also double-wind time only weight driven clocks.
