I made all the parts to this movement except the weight cable
and the glass mercury jar. I cut and polished the ruby bearings
at each end of the escape and pallet arbors, and mounted them
in plate bezels. I cut, mounted, and polished the saphire pallets.
It has a high numbered train with hardened and tempered pinions.
The movement from this clock shared First Prize in the NAWCC
Craft Competition, Single Train Movement catagory, at the national
convention in Atlanta, GA, 1997.
