917 - Regulator or Pendulum Clocks

325.00

A regulator clock, also known as a pendulum clock, is a clock that uses a swinging weight as its timekeeping element. The pendulum swings back and forth in a precise time interval dependent on its length, and resists swinging at other rates. From its invention in 1656 by Christiaan Huygens until the 1930s, the pendulum clock was the world's most precise timekeeper.

Our European picker locates these clocks throughout Belgium and France. The movements are usually made in France. Our clocks have been tested and they do work. To keep time accurately, pendulum clocks must be absolutely level. If they are not, the pendulum swings more to one side than the other, upsetting the symmetrical operation of the spring. These clocks chime the hour and on the half hour.
