Default Long Case Wall Clock

An impostor....A fake....not a real regulator, although the quartz movement will keep time accurately within 2 minutes a year.
The brass weight, pendulum bob, beat plaque and pulley are from vintage, authentic clocks, the hinges, door latches and door knob are from more contemporary sources but have "the look" of older brass. The wood is #1 poplar treated with Minwax pre-stain to prevent blotching, English Chestnut stain and then satin polyurethane. The door called for a 43" long piece and not available at BB stores so had to use Plexiglas. 36" is the largest glass available now. A fun project.

I use the quartz movements that automatically adjust for daylight savings time.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it.

I should have also had in the info that there is a pendulum drive unit swinging the 34" pendulum that is independent of the time movement.
