This No. 62 movement design is constructed in brass. The plates are keystone shaped plates. The front plate is die-stamped with the Maker’s trademark. Both plates support the steel shafts and cut pinions. The shafts are fitted with brass gearing which includes maintaining power and a Graham Deadbeat escapement. This clock beats seconds. It is weight powered and is designed to run eight days on a full wind. The pendulum is constructed with a wooden rod that supports a zinc bob which is covered in brass. This is designed to compensate for changes in temperature. The weight is also brass covered and matches the coloring of the bob. It hangs from the original brass pulley. Note this clock retains its swing indicator which is mounted to the backboard of the case.
This attractive clock was made circa 1900. It is an excellent example.
