Wall Clock with Remontoire
This clock features a remontoire, (from the French remonter, meaning "to wind"), a small secondary source of power that is periodically rewound by the main power source. It was typically used in precision clocks to place the source of power closer to the escapement. By smoothing out variations in the drive force caused by unevenness of the friction in the gear train, the remontoire improves the clock’s accuracy. This remontoire is triggered every 15 seconds which allows the drive weight to lift it back up into position.
