A little About Antique Clocks - Anniversary Clocks
One of the most beautiful and unique clocks ever made is the anniversary clock.

Usually presented to married couples on their first wedding anniversary, the 400-day clock could be wound once per year on the celebrated day. Companies like Kern, Schatz, Kundo, and Haller manufactured these spring driven clocks into the 1950s. Most models produced after this period were, and continue to be, electrically operated.

Because of their sensitive escapement mechanism and oscillating four-ball pendulum, many anniversary clocks brought bitter disappointment to their new owners. But, since many were received as gifts, few complaints were ever heard. The clocks merely sat inoperative, some for many years.

Antique clock collectors created a rise in their popularity and one company, Horolovar, met their demands by perfecting an alloyed suspension spring along with other parts which revolutionized the repair and restoration of anniversary clocks.

Well worth collecting if you can find a good example.
