Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The clock movement has only one heavy plate onto which various cocks, bridges, etc. are mounted. The pivots are very fine and the pallet and escape wheel arbors are jewelled. A beautiful detail is the the pallet and third wheel arbors rest on roller bearings. The pallets, which are removable, have saphire inserts. The pallet front jewel hole is provided with a slide to adjust the depth and a large tensoining spring is fitted to eliminate backlash between the mean and solar time wheels. The year wheel and equation kidney are mounted behind the dial. All the steel studs are parallel sided and have a turned facility for oil retention. The large cocks are dovetailed.
The nine rod gridiron pendulum rests on a knife edge. It is particularly well constructed, both the outer steel bars and the cross bars being in one piece. Engraved on one of the plates is "Pendulum de Compensation". The pendulum indicates temparature change on an enamelled plaque with graduations for Froid, Tempere and Chaud.
The beautiful convex enamelled dial is signed by the eminent enameller, Dubuisson.
