Clock of the Month March – Thomas Benniworth.

Well March has very nearly come and gone without me choosing a clock of the month. I’ve now put things right.  This months featured clock is this superb domestic regulator by Thomas Benniworth of St Albans.  The clock features a recoil anchor escapement which is unusual in a regulator such as this, especially a regulator which includes bolt type maintaining power.  The movement is very well constructed and includes many thoughtful and asthetic detials to its construction.  Timekeeping is kept stable by the substantial wood rod pendulum with large diameter brass bob and fine rating nut.  A very lovely clock currently gracing my office, however the Clock is for sale here
