Grandfather Clock Repair
Long treasured for its superior accuracy in timekeeping, the grandfather clock is a large, free-standing pendulum clock in which the pendulum is stored within the clock’s case. These clocks are frequently known for their ornate, decorated hoods. They provide value both as decorative elements and as potential antiques/family heirlooms today. It is believed the grandfather clock was created by William Clement, an English clockmaker in 1670. Prior to that, Robert Hooke’s anchor escapement mechanism creation in 1658 allowed clockmakers to capture slower “beats” of the pendulum. This change allowed for less winding of the clocks and more accuracy in their timekeeping. Modern clocks in this style now use a “deadbeat escapement.” The grandfather clock is known by several other names, including the tall-case clock, longcase clock, and floor clock. No matter the name, these clocks are typically wound either daily or once a week.
The previously noted accuracy of timekeeping and the potential for both their decorative value and their value as are among the chief reasons for owning a grandfather clock. The superior design of the pendulum clock mechanism has been proven to be one of the most accurate possible. Rather than rely on the antiseptic look of a digital clock or watch-face, you can rely on a grandfather clock to add style to your living space while still keeping your life on schedule and on time. The ornate design of the grandfather clock is a hallmark of many homes even today. These clocks add a level of sophistication and prestige to the living quarters where they are found. With an antique grandfather clock, you also have a unique investment piece that rarely costs less than $30,000 if maintained and kept in good working condition.
