Wheel pivot after burnishing and polishing. Case after cleaning and oiling, and repaired dial pan with new bezel and glass. We aged the bezel with a chemical solution, buffed and oiled for a more original appearance. The case was cleaned with a gentle wood cleaner and reconditioner, and hand rubbed with a 3 step oil based wood treatment. The movement after reconditioning. All pivots were burnished and polished, all plate pivot holes had bushings installed, the anchor pallets were smoothed, a new mainspring was installed on the strike train great wheel, and the hammer was repadded with leather. Case with movement installed and adjusted. The clock is finished and running. After all reconditioning work is done, the clock is test run for two weeks, the time is regulated, and all striking functions checked.
