Grandfather Clock Movement
Fascinating Grandfather Clock movement
From the swinging of the pendulum to the suspension spring, pallet and escape wheel the intricate mechanisms that create and sustain grandfather clock works remain largely unseen and unheralded for something that routinely withstands the test of time.
It’s an elaborate an often unseen dance between wheels, drums, hands and weights that allow the timeless tick and chime of your grandfather clock. The clock movement is needed to work together in perfect harmony.
The ornate façade of the most beautiful grandfather clock is little more than beautiful dressing without precision clock movements.
If you’ve ever removed the back of a manual wind wristwatch you may have been barraged with rotating wheels and ticking that caused the hands of your watch to give you an indication of the time.
This is the same picture of clock movements. The primary difference between a wristwatch and a grandfather clock is mechanisms that are larger and interlinked for a pristine beauty unmatched by more advanced time keeping devices.
No digital numerals, no insistent beeps of an electronic alarm clock and no fear in the event of a power outage.
In those times when darkness descends on your home the comforting tick of your floor clock movement continues to keep time independent of outside influences.
The clock movements allow your timepiece to remain its own independent timekeeper.
What other device in your home can make such a claim.
And when the time comes when your floor clock movements cease their faithful service there are those who understand your devotion to the ‘clock’. Parts and assemblies are available to bring life back to your heirloom.
