    Hello,
    Well, as a novice I have following challenging task for all masters:
    Q: Am I correct that on the included pic of WM.L. Gilbert clock's movement is something missing (e.g. pendulum spring...)? Thanks for help and cheers, Mario (senior with a brand new hobby)

    Welcome to the board.

    The suspension spring is the top part of the pendulum rod, which you show lying next to the clock. It attaches to the top bracket (in slit between the two chops) and the rod passes down through the little loop at the bottom. Then you hang the bob on the hook.

    It should have a dimple on the spring, or a small hole where a wire can be inserted to keep it in place. It also should be straight. If it has broken, you can get replacements at most of the regular suppliers. leeinv66 would be able to tell you who the best supplier for your area would be.
