8-day Wooden Works

According to Taylor and Rogers, Jerome was one of the most prolific makers of 8-day movements.  Their NAWCC Bulletin Supplement (#19, Eight-Day Wood Movement Shelf Clocks–Their Cases, Their Movements, Their Makers) identifies the movements of 8-day wood works makers.


Type 4.23 8-day movement, with metal winding drums.


Type 4.112 8-day movement with brass bushings (original).  Although only the winding arbor bushings are visible, the movement is bushed throughout.  This movement was made, in part, with gears from 30-hr movements.  A spacer block is attached to the back plate to accommodate the shorter arbors of the #4 and #5 gears in the time train.
