Peter, thanks VERY much for posting the photos of your cylinder escapement torsion clock. You have what appears to be a very rare example that may be an original prototype for the Gustav Becker cylinder escapement 400-Day torsion clock that was first made commercially in late 1872. The GB clock design appears to be virtually identical to your clock, and this version was made from 1872 to 1874. We have seven examples documented during those years including one that I own as seen in the following photos:Hi! I am pleased to present unpublished anywhere clock with cylinder escapement. Clock made entirely by hand in 99.9% of the original in very good condition. The clock is in my possession for 10 years. Please help to establish the origin.
Yes, I can see there are some differences between your clock and the production models. That is not unusual when a completely new clock design is being perfected, and in fact we have documented other changes that were made after commercial production started and across the years of production.Hi! John! Department of 400 days-clocks is best conducted. I have read everything on the subject. I still have many questions about the clock. Some parts of it made were not used later. Some elements are different than in GB production
