Month duration wall regulator by Dent. No.61257

Ref: 1217


Superb large wall mounted regulator by one of England’s finest regulator makers, Dent of London. Typical Dent Lift-off mahogany glazed case with carved details and base. The beautifully finished month duration movement has classic, Dent style tapered pillars and delicate 5 wheel train with high count pinions, outside escape wheel and a dead beat escapement with jewelled pallets. The movement has Geneva stop work, a feature only seen on the best of the Dent movements. The bronzed finish weight and pulley fall to the RH side of the case and are wound via a hole in the front glass that has a sliding brass cover. The movement is bolted to a cast iron bracket with separate pendulum support. When I acquired this clock the pendulum bob was an inferior non-standard lead replacement but luckily I had in my stores an old steel jar bob that fitted to the original pendulum rod so that the Dent sliding rating weight was retained. The classic regulator format dial is larger than the usual 9 ½” at 11” overall and is signed DENT Clockmaker to the King. 28 COCKSPUR St. & 4 ROYAL EXCHANGE LONDON. and is numbered 61257 in the subsidiary hour dial. Circa.1920
