400-DAY CLOCK CHAPTER #168
Purpose: To promote an interest in all forms of Torsion
Pendulum Clocks, including collecting, restoration, and preservation;
and to encourage research and study to develop and preserve all
historical information and knowledge of these unique clocks for the
benefit of our members and the general public.
The International 400-Day Clock Chapter #168 was founded in
1995 to provide a forum for persons to meet and communicate with all
who may have an interest in any kind of Torsion Pendulum Clocks.
Whether it may be early Crane or Terry, 400-Day, Atmos, Tiffany
Never-Wind, French Statue or Lighthouse, or any other torsion pendulum
clock this is “the” place to find information about these unique
timepieces. Due to its non-geographic nature, we have three means to
ensure the cohesiveness of the chapter and that our purpose will be
“THE TORSION TIMES”, our periodical Journal that contains info on repair,
collecting, history, dating, and other items of interest on all types
of torsion clocks.
