NUMEROUS ADDITIONAL ITEMS THAT ARE COMPONENTS OF PROPER SERVICING. IMPORTANT: NOTICE SUPERSIZE PHOTO 11. AN ELECTRONIC TEST IS UNDERWAY TO MINIMIZE THE PENDULUM BEAT ERROR, WITH AN OBJECTIVE OF APPROACHING ZERO. THIS RESTORED FINE ROUND MOVEMENT MET AND HELD ZERO BEAT ERROR AS WELL AS STABLE BEAT RATE, INDICATING A VERY HEALTHY MOVEMENT. AS INFORMATION, ERRATIC PENDULUM BEAT ERROR AND/OR BEAT RATE TESTS THAT WILL NOT STABILIZE ARE INDICATIVE OF HEALTH PROBLEMS IN THE MOVEMENT. THIS IS ANOTHER REASON WHY I ALWAYS RUN THOROUGH TESTS AND ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES ON MY DISTINCTIVECLOCKS! THE RESTORED FINE ROUND MOVEMENT SWINGS A PENDULUM ARC AMPLITUDE WIDTH OF OVER 3 ½ INCHES AS MEASURED FROM THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BOB AT LEFT SWING TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BOB AT RIGHT SWING. THIS EXCEEDS ORIGINAL SPECS AND INDICATES A STRONG AND HEALTHY MOVMENT WITH VIRTUALLY NO FRICTION AND PLENTY OF RESERVE ENERGY. BEWARE OF A FINE ROUND MOVEMENT WITH 2 1/4 INCHES OR LESS PENDULUM AMPLITUDE ARC WIDTH; IT IS A TALE-TALE INDICATOR OF POOR MOVEMENT HEALTH!
