This clock has not been recently serviced or timed. There is oxidisation to the clock face and the workings would be if it from a clean. We are unable to dismantle to review the interior workings. The clock has been in the Crebbin family for two generations but the family do not remember it going in recent times, however they do remember it running in the past.
