Ansonia Round Drop Wall Clock

May 20, 2011 | By | 1 Reply More

This nice old Ansonia wall clock has an 8-day time only movement. The case is 24 1/2 inches tall and 16 inches wide. The paper dial has an 11 inch time track.

The movement, like those in many Ansonia clocks, is an efficient runner, with the original mainspring being only around 0.0172 – 0.0174 inch thick. The mainspring is in excellent condition, so I retained it in the clock. If it needed replacing, the new spring should be only around 0.0155 – 0.016 inch thick. The movement appears to have been forced to run for may years by keeping it oiled without cleaning it, as 2 pivots and three pinions were quite worn. I polished the pivots and installed 8 bushings.

The movement is marked “12”, referring to the pendulum length.
