Object Description

A giant single weight Vienna regulator in an imposing ebonised architectural case.

The unsigned 8-day movement has tapered plates, and is numbered 42098. The backplate has a bayonet fit to the case mount. The serial number also 42098 appears on the dial backing plate, the case movement mount, and pendulum top, confirming their originality.

The movement has a dead beat escapement, maintaining power, and beat adjustment screw, the weight pulley having five crossings – a sign of a higher quality movement than average.

The 9-inch two piece white enamel dial has Roman numerals within an outer minute track, and subsidiary seconds dial to the centre.

Bold black steel spade hands.

Ebonised wood rod pendulum suspended from the backboard, the 8-inch polished brass bob with inset rating nut, and with an enamel degree arc scale.

Polished and lacquered brass weight.
