An additional interesting feature of this clock is a fiber fly pinion in the strike train to make it more quite.
Never turn the hour (short) hand, it moves automatically.
This clock will keep time to within about 2 - 4 minutes per week.
Most of the mechanical features of American clock movements were found in the Jerome weight driven movements: lantern pinions, countwheel strike, bent-wire levers, center arbor driven by the train and not part of it.
The tablet has a lot of paint loss, and the dial is very worn.
Chauncey Jerome began his career in clockmaking under Eli Terry.
