Hello.I have this weights clock,Schmeckenbecher "Tempus Fugit" which lacks the rod of the pendulum. Does anyone know if the rod dimension is the indication of 75 cm that is on the movement? Can also tell me the date of manufacture?
Thank's

The 75CM would be the length from the suspension hanger (where the spring attaches) to about center bob. It appears that the movement is a 1979, so probably the clock is close to that date.

Tempus Fugit means time flies.
It is more commonly seen on grand father clocks.
The movement was actually made by Hermle. The 241-030
is a giveaway.
If you do a search for that number, you should get a number
of hits. Hopefully you'll find another free swinger like yours with
a pendulum to look at.
