More details

  • It is a portable Gothic clock moved by a steel spring and its regulation is carried out by the “foliot” which is a stick with small counter-weights on its sides that can be regulated.
  • This clock is not a copy of any original design, but has the same works as gothic clocks, identical mechanical systems and materials (wood, brass and iron), using the same techniques as at the time.
  • Naturally, the face of this clock has only one hand; the minute hand was to appear with the pendulum clock, in the eighteenth century.

POSITIONING

  • Wind up the clock by turning the crank always anti-clockwise, till the spring stops.
  • The clock will immediately start working.

REGULATION

  • The regulation of this clock must be done by varying the position of the counter-weights A and B in the “foliot”.
  • The more you approach the counter-weights symmetrically towards the escapement axle, the faster the clock works and vice versa.
