Gentlemen....you have been most helpful on my Herschede questions and issues in the past. Good friend has this piece below, can you enlighten me on what we have here? (type of movement, 2 weights, no tubes, a bell gong?

Banchory is a Scottish town in Fife. The clock looks like about 1810. What are you referring to about type of movement and tubes? :???:

Can we see the movement? It's an 8-day - is it working?

A very typical painted dial 8 day longcase clock so two weights and bell strike on the hour. William Center is listed in Banchory circa 1800 or earlier, died 1836-7 with a note of 'a man of jovial disposition and convivable habits'.

We should aim to have as good on our tomb stones.

Please show us what's inside the tower door.
