The restoration of this clock (complete disassembly piece by piece of the movement and the cage) has just been carried out in an Art Watch workshop. PRECAUTIONS AND ADVICE: it is advisable to handle the pendulum with cotton gloves to avoid oxidation of the golden brasses by the sweat of the fingers (if fingerprints it is necessary immediately without waiting to pass a soft cloth without product), respect the direction of the arrows for setting the time and setting the alarm.
It should not be exposed near a heat source (fireplace in operation, radiators, halogen spotlights, sunlight). There is no work to be done on this beautiful clock. The next overhaul should be done in 5 to 7 years maximum (aging of the oils, which oxidize, causing wear on the pivot points).
