I repaired this beautiful Waterbury clock earlier this year. It is a 30 hour weight-driven clock in a half-column case with gild and marbleized columns and walnut veneer. Everything appears original – nice painted dial with 95 percent of the original paint, nice reverse painted glass with a coat-of-arms, and a great label on the backboard.
Repair job 6264. I cleaned the movement, polished 4 pivots and installed 3 bushings. I closed the verge (made the pallet tips closer together) to reduce the drop onto the exit pallet. I reverse the wires in one pinion to let the unworn surface engage the driving gear.
