Hi all,

I have a Brook & Son vintage mantel clock that I have never been able to wind. It opens from the back and has its winding key, but it barely moves a hair. It looks like there is a latch/lock which prevents the winding mechanism from turning (see pic 4 below). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Shane

I would suggest that the clock is already, fully wound. Looks like it hasn't been serviced for a long time. Would need to be stripped and cleaned. It may have a platform problem. My advice is don't attempt to dismantle the movement, unless you know what you are doing, as much damage may be caused.

Hope this helps.

If you require further advice, just ask.

Thank you, Simon. I wouldn't know what to do in terms of dismantling or cleaning it, and in truth I was intending to give it to charity or sell it if it wasn't an easy fix. Do you think it would be of any value in its current condition? 

Really appreciate the response.
