Moon Mechanisms Book

A must for restorers, collectors and dealers,
this book is the only one in print that deals exclusively with moon mechanisms

In this book are detailed explanations and diagrams of the moon mechanisms found on brass and painted dials, of the type that make up the vast majority of longcase clocks in private homes.

Peter Grimwood has been restoring longcase clocks for over 30 years. Because of his interest in the moon and planets he specialised in the replacement of missing moon mechanisms.

The material for this book is drawn from the notes, sketches and photographs used to record the different mechanisms that passed through the workshop. Also included are details of the ‘underdial’ work for associated dials such as date, day and month.
