Arthur Pequegnat Clock Co.

New postby perby » Fri Oct 06, 2017 11:53 pm

I have just received this Clock, as yet I have not opened it up to see what the mechanism looks like.
Just wanted to know how does one set the calendar aspect of the clock ?
I likely will have more questions about it when I get around to looking, but am in no rush to tax my abilities just yet.
I believe this is a Model 2 Brandon, ca. !920 - 24.
Is this a worthwhile clock to collect, and are they common etc., any info about this style and maker is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Bill

As a follow uyp, here is a picture of the movement in this clock.
It appears that this movement has had some work done on it, as there are soldered parts on the main wheel,

Hi Perby that is a nice clock to collect. There are some postings on the NAWCC mb on the calendar functions. I have a few clocks with these. Pequegnat is a good name to collect, some of them hold values very well. Solder is not a good thing to see on clocks, especially if its every where, on yours it does not look that bad. Hope you get it restored and running well.

Hi Kevin,
Well I took the clock apart, did a very amateur COA, set the beat, and set the date.
It now appears to be working almost perfectly, about a minute out every couple of days, but that is a easy fix.
Oh I am sure this one is a "Brandon" model clock, but not sure whether it is a model 1 or 2, likely a 2 as the front bezel is pretty plain, but seeing as I have not seen the difference, as I have not seen a Model 1.
Thanks for the comments.
Bill

Hi Bill, there was a posting on the NAWCC website about setting the calendar.
These clocks by this maker seem to keep their values too, its a great clock. I have a Brandon, but no calendar on mine.
