Hello it is me again with an other question. I have recently bought a Waterbury time only movement. I was wondering if someone here could please tell me what kind of weigth I need. Is it a pendulum or a bob that I need?

Thank you

You need a suspension rod, they come with the suspension spring attached. Don't get the one piece unit.

Then you will need an adjustable bob. Many Waterburys came with a peculiar sunburst style bob. Most supply books show them.

Most of these type movements go in wall clocks, so don't cut the suspension rod until you do an initial full length test. You may need most of the length.

Good luck, Willie X
