miniature crystal regulator - Details:
pretty French clock has a lot packed into a small
space with four-glass design making everything visible.
The upper of the two 7cm diameter white porcelain
dials shows a Brocot escapement recessed inside the
chapter ring along with the two winding arbors. A
gilt brass bezel separates the recessed area from
the chapter ring.
The lower dial is surrounded by the months of the
year with subsidiary dials for the day, date, and
a stylistic moon phase indicator.
front of the clock has a beveled glass door framed in
brass that opens to a highly engraved mask. Both sides
have beveled glass panels to allow full view of the
8-day going barrel and movement with the perpetual calendar
movement mounted below. The rear beveled glass door
opens to the striking mechanism (on the hour and 1/2
hour), gong, and adjustable pendulum.
of this style with a calendar were usually made in a
much large case; one this size with perpetual calendar
is very rare. Other than some light scratches under
the pendulum, this clock is in very good condition and
in good working order after a recent overhaul.
