400 Day mechanical clock identification request form
Simply fill out the following information, to the best of your
ability, and we'll get back to you. It's totally free, we won't share your email
address with anyone else and we won't send you any spam. Why do we do this?
Because the volunteers are interested in these clocks, and we learn a little
from each and every request. If, when you get your reply, you'd be kind enough
to email us some photos of your clock, we'd appreciate that. It will also assist
others like you in the future.
Why so many questions? We are trying to identify a model of
a clock made by many different factories over a period of over 100 years,
and most of these companies no longer exist.
It is vital that you answer all the questions as accurately as you can, or
we may not be able to identify your clock. They don't involve any clockmaking
skills, just a ruler. If you don't fully understand a question, click on the
link in the question.
If we can identify your clock, we will reply within 5 working days with details
of the wire and/or suspension it uses. You may get considerably more information
than just the wire etc, depending on the information we have in our database.
The information we supply will be from records from various reliable sources,
but we cannot be held responsible if the wire or suspension proves unsuitable.
There is no charge for this service, but incomplete requests will not be processed,
and you may not get a reply at all if you don't answer all the questions. Please
remember that it is run by volunteers.
