I overhauled this beautiful Ansonia Royal Bonn china cased clock, called “La Layon”. It has a visible escapement in the center of the dial, and was made around 1900. The dial is enamel.
Repair job 7453. I re-pinned one pinion, polished the pivots and installed 17 bushings.
These Ansonia movements use very thin mainsprings. The dimensions of this clock’s original springs are:
- Time: 5/8 inch wide by 0.0138 inch thick
- Strike: 3/4 inch wide by 0.014 inch thick
