. The movement (striking and hourly movement) works over 8 days, so it must be wound up every week. it also allows the alarm clock to be reassembled and the trigger time to be adjusted.

All the work carried out on this clock is carried out in compliance with the ethical rules for the restoration of horological objects,
i.e. without modification or embellishment of the timepiece and using high-end mineral or synthetic oils and greases (Moebius ...) for the lubrication
The restoration of this clock (complete disassembly piece by piece of the movement and the cage) has just been carried out in an Art Watch workshop (www.horloger-chastant.fr)
