French Rare Ship’s Wheel Crystal Regulator
This handsome crystal regulator mantel clock has a polished brass case with glass on all four sides. What makes it rare is the detached balance wheel regulation in the form of an oscillating ships wheel instead of a more common pendulum. The clock has an eight day movement striking on a bell on the hour and half hour. The clock has a two piece porcelain dial with blued steel hands and an exposed skeletonized Brocot escapement. This rare timepiece comes with a one year warranty and has undergone a complete restoration.
