I have wanted one of these clocks for a very long time. Finally bought one. It was expensive for me to buy, but i know i will like it.Seller on Ebay says it runs. I have not hooked up the battery and leads to it yet. I hung it today on the wall and unlocked the pendulum. It dis start ticking. Must have some reserve power still in the m spring. I like it too because of the size, 20 or so inches across it and a 16 inch dial.
here are a few pictures of it. It is now on the wall in the diningroom.

Kevin,
They have conversion kits for these old clocks that they sell on the bay quite often. It's just to convert the batteries over to conventional one's that we use now. May be a good idea to invest in one of those. Nice pick by the way, I had one about 15 years back and traded it off for some other much needed items. In hind sight, I probably should have just held on to it.
