Customer Question
I am just beginning my...

I am just beginning my clock collection and am learning. I have what seems like a basic question. I have picked up a relatively newer (10-20 yrs old) Korean 31 day pendulum wall clock. I quickly found the clock's 'beat' - in fact - the clock keeps perfect time (over last 6 hours or so). The issue is the clock case sits about 20 degrees off center to keep time. I have not touched the pendulum or bob at this time. Recommendations? Thanks, Tony

Hi Tony, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. Yes I have had the same problem many times if the clock is keeping perfect time and is in beat the only true way to fix the problem is in fact to adjust the clocks case to the movement or you will have to live with the clocks case being off by 15 or 20 degrees. Thanks Mike
