Here’s a great old 400 day clock that I recently repaired. It was made by Kienzle in Germany around 1905. It has a “disc” pendulum, consisting of a round brass-covered iron disc, with 2 weights on top that you screw in or out to regulate the timekeeping.
The dial is enamel with spade hands.
Repair job 6339. The movement needed major repair work. The escape wheel had 3 badly bent teeth, and I was able to obtain a replacement from the Horolovar Company. The mainspring barrel had a bulge and the hook was loose. I carefully flattened the bulge and riveted the hook tighter. I moved the entrance pallet out and adjusted the escapement depth. The suspension spring was nice and flat, but the clock ran slightly fast. I thinned the spring, and adjusted the fork height for proper escapement action.
I polished and lacquered the base, pillars and arch (the decorative part above the dial).
