Complicated Regulator Clock

Now then…. this very complicated Regulator clock came in recently for a full overhaul.. the gearing had been set up incorrectly so we completely dismantled and cleaned all parts before reassembling correctly! I think it’s time for a stiff drink after all that! Enjoy! 🤓

Claude Du Chesne Clock Restoration

A rather special clock in this week for a full restoration… this is one of the finest from the 17th century. This one dating from around c1690 and made by the highly talented Claude Du Chesne of London. Featuring a double fusee verge escapement bracket clock movement. After being poorly repaired the clock had a few bushes that were not very clever. A full three days of work has it working correctly and looking amazing..! I’ve added some before pictures as well… Enjoy the shiny brass! 🤓
