A Traditional Wall Clock Of High Precision & Elegance
grandfather clock or floor standing clock without taking up as much space.
As mechanical clocks often runs for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for many years without stopping, it is highly recommended to get a service and a maintenance clean every 7 to 10 years. This should always be carried out by a qualified professional clockmaker.
A regulator wall clock is defined as a weight driven clock regulated by a swinging pendulum. This type of clock was invented in the late 1700’s, to improve the accuracy of spring wound clocks. Regulator wall clocks are available in both striking and chiming weight driven models, as well as highly precise clocks that do not make a sound, and rather than winding a spring in the dial, the weights are wound similar to that of a grandfather clock. Some models are both weight and spring wound, so the weight delivers constant power to the pendulum to keep the time, whilst the chimes and strike are operated by springs. This type requires winding using a crank key in the dial, with the weights suspended from a carriage that moves on a cable, which gets wound once a week.
Mechanical weight driven regulators are beautiful clocks that are often larger in size, ranging from 900mm to 1200mm in height, creating a statement piece similar to that of a grandfather clock or floor standing clock without taking up as much space.
Both elegant and timeless in design, traditional wall clocks add a touch of nostalgia and old world charm, and can make a beautiful addition to any room in your home. Crafted with precision and attention to detail, these elegant timepieces commonly feature impressive walnut, cherry & brass casings, where the overall design style and craftsmanship hasn't changed much over the centuries. Whilst many of these beautiful designs offer an alternative to the more modern and contemporary round wall or office clocks that are commonplace today, some designers are producing more modern looking traditional wall clocks, offering a fresh take on a classic design to better suit the modern space.
