Paid 200 for it. In absolute pristine condition from 1931! Appears and functions like new, EXCEPT......
Actually has two different chime melodies...Westminster and Whittington. Switch position is directly above the 12:00 Arabic. Movement seems to function fine...Runs for a week or so, keeps great time, but the chime function lasts only a few days before it stops chiming on a full wind of all 3 arbors.
Question #1. Is it worth 200 bucks?
2. Was this what they called an "8 day" movement?
3. Notice there's no name branding on dial or anywhere on the movement that I could see....Who made it and country of origin?
Was this a quality made clock, movement and chiming mechanism in its heyday?
4. What do the 3 winding arbors on dial specifically wind what part of the movement/chiming mechanism?
Why I ask, the left arbor always winds tight with fewest turns as middle or right.
Any of your sage info greatly appreciated!
