ADJUSTABLE PENDULUM SCALE
A horizontally adjustable pendulum scale. The kit allows to adjust the pendulum tip precisely to zero.

A solid pendulum lense can be ordered as an optional extra for the pendulum. The fact that there is less air resistance means that the amplitude of oscillation, and consequently the rate, remain steadier. The lenses are numbered in sequence and can be fitted with the engraving either at the front or at the back. The lense is available in bronze or nickel finish.

CUTAWAY IN THE NORMAL OR REGULATOR DIAL
The upgrade kit “cutaway in the regulator dial” can only be ordered in combination with the upgrade kit “regulator dial”. The cutaway in the seconds subdial in conjunction with a milling in the top plate of the movement makes it possible to see the gold-plated gear wheels and the Graham escapement. The modified set contains the dial with cutaway as well as the top plate with its special milling.

In the „clock book“ that comes with every kit, you can read more about evolution and technology of mechanic clocks. Linen bound and printed on high quality paper.
Lean back and take some time. A complete version of the book is available as PDF. The first chapter is the complete instruction. The second chapter explains the technology and function of the Mechanica M1.
In order to give you the opportunity to technically and optically upgrade your new Mechanica M1, various accessories were already considered when planning the kit. With the following extras you can individualize your Mechanica M1 in the areas of durability, accuracy and optics.
