  1. Ron, I had the intentions of quickly viewing your page, but quickly became intrigued with your collection of clocks, and your passion for collecting, knowledge and memories. My favorites are your grandfather clock, and the one at 0:41 seconds (I can’t make out the name), but it is simply beautiful. It looks like it has so many stories to tell that live on through each strike.

    Great page, and love how you share your hobby & knowledge with others. It’s wonderful how we find something that brings us such happiness in the world around us, something that we often overlooked at a previous chapter in our life. Although I do not share relatively the same passion for horology that you do, I love the beauty of clocks – something so practical, overlooked, and aged, yet the importance it offers us in everyday life, the beauty we often fail to see and the stories that it tells.

    Awesome!

  3. Hi Ronald. This is off topic, but since I cannot find any article on your blog about it, I hope you don’t mind my asking you here, out of curiosity, ok?

    In “Dans la ville blanche” (a 1983 Switzerland/Portugal/UK movie by Alain Tanner), I saw a backward clock. Here’s the screenshot, just in case:

    Is that really a purpose or some story behind that kind of clock? Thanks

    (PS: It’s ticking, and it’s not a CGI-oriented movie, so I vouch the clock is for real)

  4. I have a 400 day anniversary clock that I had repaired. The man who repaired it said it belonged in a museum. It has Master written on the front of the clock. It has a pendulum with 4 balls that rotate back and forth as time passes. I have been unable to find any information on the clock. Can you or have you ever heard of this clock. It belonged to my father who has passed away. Thank

    1. Master clocks were made by the Nisshindo Watch Co.of Japan after the Second World War. They are called 400 day clocks because that have a running time of up to 400 days and need only be wound once a year, however, you can improve the accuracy of the clock by winding it every 90 days. If you can provide me with some photos I might be able to narrow down the date of manufacture. I am not sure of the value but the comment that the repair person made probably refereed to the excellent condition for the age of the clock.

  5. Hi Ron, have just purchased a french carriage clock with the same features on the movement as yours, so possibly the same. The case is also simular but the handle is different, it isn’t operating at the moment, will keep you posted. Great blog by the way…
    Cheers Evan

    1. Thanks for dropping by. Many of these movements were unmarked. Mine was made for the English market as it has “S” and “F” rather than “A”and “R” (speed regulator) as carriage clocks would have had had they been made for the French market. I did not service the platform escapement as I have no experience with jewels and left it as is. The clock works very well although I do not run it regularly. Let me know how you make out with yours.

  6. Ron, I very much enjoyed reading your blog! I have a small collection of clocks of various ages and chimes because I love their beauty and representation of times gone by. I recently received a Waterbury self clock as a gift from a friend that recently passed. It is very special to me. I was told it worked well before prepared to move. I do not know how to set it up properly with the weights. Do you have any recommendations on where I can find information on how to set up? Thank you!
