Introduction to the Anniversary or 400-Day Clock

This three-day workshop will focus on the anniversary or 400-day mechanical clock. Day 1 will focus on the School of Horology clocks that will set up and functional upon arrival. During the day, the clocks movement will have the power let down safely and the movement will be completely disassembled. The movement will be closely examined for signs of wear and common repairs that typically need to be made. Additionally, participants will be using a clock cleaning station as well as using a mainspring winder and removing/inserting a barreled mainspring. The clock should be reassembled and set up to run overnight. On Day 2, participants will examine their own clocks that they bring. Although it is not possible to guarantee that participants' clocks will be fully functional by the end of the workshop, every attempt by the instructors will be made to diagnose potential problems or fault areas in each clock. There will be a quantity of torsion springs and mainsprings that can be used by participants at a nominal cost. With cleaning and mainspring servicing and any other issues that may need attending, each participant's clock should be set to run overnight. On Day 3, participants will continue service functions to either the School of Horology clocks or the participants' clocks.
