In the late 19th century and early 20th century, pendulums for precision in astronomical observatories were often operated in a chamber that had been pumped to a low pressure to reduce drag and make the pendulum's operation even more accurate by avoiding changes in atmospheric pressure. The new middle class was swept along by the wave of neo-Greek, neo-Renaissance, and neo-Gothic styles of the buildings of the period.
Moving polished brass Pendulum and weights. The slave pendulum performed the timekeeping functions, leaving the master pendulum to swing virtually undisturbed by outside influences.

Unnecessary decoration was eliminated, but craftsmanship was not diluted. Dial centers were often engraved or embossed--often with matching weights and pendulums. I really love this clock!!!

Circa 1920 means close to the year 1920.

Most of them have been ticking away for over a century, and will probably still be ticking a hundred years from now. The problem is that it is part of our life as well.

As you view the vivid photographs and clear descriptions of the exquisite clocks in the Victor Kochaver collection, you may easily find yourself transported back to another time and place as you trace the journey of the Vienna Regulator from the Old World to the New. Precision regulators probably can be capable of controls within seconds of error monthly-mabe even more.
