In this auction you can purchase a very unusual French wall clock with repeating.

The case with the two turned columns is in very good condition in line with the age.

Apart from the usual traces of use t is nothing marring the beauty of this clock.

The clock is free of wormholes.

The dial is in flawless condition.

The clockwork is signed: " MARQUE DE'POSÉE ODO FABRICATION FRANCAISE".

The high -quality clockwork have been professionally cleaned and oiled recently.

Both the clockwork as well as the striking mechanism are fully functional.

The clockwork possesses 1 striker with which it strikes the half and full hours on 1 clave.

The full hour strike is repeated after 3 minutes.

It is understood that the matching key will also be provided.

In the beautiful case swings a gridiron pendulum,

a compensation pendulum with all the excellent qualities one commonly ascribes to it.

The use of different metals in the gridiron pendulum enhances not only its visual appearance

but the accuracy of the clock as well.

Metal expands and contracts with fluctuations in temperature, altering the pendulum length.

Although these changes are only minimally detectable,

the pendulum length determines the speed at which the clock runs, affecting the accuracy of the timepiece.

By combining metals which expand at different rates this effect is minimized.

The clock is immediately ready to be put into your living room

with no restoration needed.

On my own account

Most clocks offered by me are around 100 years old, many even older.

These clocks have survived wars, moves etc. and were then often stored in attics or forgotten in basements.

This can, quite naturally, lead to the clocks showing normal traces of wear and tear, wormholes, small color differences

in the wood or even damages in the veneer.

I have the clockwork cleaned and clean and polish the case myself. I am, however, not a professional restor...
