A clean, early example of the Gent's Pulsynetic C40A WT for sale.


For those who value originality and an early movement, in remarkable condition and good working order, there is a WT for sale at The Time Workshops: 

This electric, turret clock movement is remarkably complete. All the screws look original and in keeping with the mechanism. The main drive electromagnet coils are also early and of original appearance.

The minor components are all gold lacquered brass or bronze. All look original and match the early, black painted , mainframe period. Probably from around the time of the First World War. Or, about 100 years old. A true antique.

A single drive shaft leads off to the left of the movement with an extended bracket for support. A timekeeping dial is present behind the movement with a brass indicator.

The early form of cast, angular contact steady bars is present. Mounted on an original oval, horizontal support pillar.

The pendulum drive armature is of the early, solid type. Later examples had a roller. 

 This is a close up of the waiting train mechanism which controls the timekeeping of the turret, motor pendulum. A Pulsynetic master clock or impulse circuit will be required for a suitable dial and hands to keep good time. Without the brief, half minute impulse, the WT will run fast since it will not be paused as the designer's intended.

An authentic time setting crank is present. Useful for resetting the turret dial to time after a change to summer or winter time.,
The main contact assembly uses the Hipp Toggle and V-block to maintain the swing of pendulum regardless of resistance from the exposed clock hands. 

The genius of the design is that up to 30 times the normal power is available [completely automatically] on demand, to drive large clock hands on a suitable dial. Note the brass toggle damper on the right.

The original pendulum bob is a weighty affair in keeping with a turret clock.
