Sessions movement
Sessions movement in the process of repair

Regular readers have followed my progress on this 1927 Sessions tambour style clock.

Better news this time. After installing 10 bushings, repairing the strike click, replacing the pendulum bob and suspension spring and reassembling and oiling the clock and the springs I am having excellent success regulating this fine old clock. On a full wind I am getting upwards of 9 days and typically eight days through the summer. Though it sits inside our cottage in Quebec it has suffered through all manner of outside weather including high humidity and cool nights and despite these conditions it has performed admirably.

Although originally intended as a cottage clock I will be taking this clock back with me and placing it in a prominent place in my home.

All in all a great learning experience and a satisfying result.
