    ONE LAST QUESTION ON SWINGER CLOCKS- DOES ANYONE KNOW WHICH OF THE REPRODUCTION CLOCK MECHANISMS ARE CONSTRUCTED BETTER? I WAS TOLD BY ONE DEALER THAT THE TIN CAN MOVEMENT IS BETTER THAN THE BALL MOVEMENT. ANY COMMENTS?

    THANKS- DON
    P.S- THE INPUT FOR MY LAST QUESTION ON REPRODUCTION VS ORIGINAL SWINGER CLOCKS WAS GREAT. THANKS TO ALL.

    Hello Don

    There are several different makers of the movement, that I can tell, India, and maybe two in China. So you would have to know which manufacture we are talking about.

    I think the reproductions has been made since 1960's so I am told, but the newer ones are the ones you see now which have flooded the market in the last four years. I think most of them come from China.

    I think even the makers of the clocks are now selling them along with the statues in China.

    Maybe the Dealer had fewer returns on the can then with the ball movement.
