The Templeton Regulator Wall Clock
I LOVE THIS CLOCK!
This is a great clock. It keeps good time with slight pendulum adjustment at setup. I have the clock hanging in my bedroom, it's ticking helps put me to sleep at night. The single strike on the hour is unobtrusive and doesn't awaken me. I like this little piece of history so much that I plan on getting more of them to give as Christmas gifts.

The style and design of this clock is very nice. With that being said... If you're buying it for the look then get it. If you're buying it as a timepiece then buyer beware. This clock does NOT keep time. Not even close. The adjustable pendulum can't compensate for the poor time keeping abilities of this clock.
On average I lose 5-10 minutes for each hour that passes.
When it comes to design they nailed the look. When it comes to the basic features of a time piece...epic fail.

Great clock - looks like antique!
Great looking clock. Once assembled it didn't run right out of the box though. Sprayed the mechanism with a little silicone lubricant and since then no problems! Looks like an antique!

A "chiming" centerpiece that delights the senses
The Templeton Regulator Wall Clock delights those who see it because they can see the working parts which fascinates old and young alike. A melodious chime sounds the hour reminding us of the time. A true delight.

This clock will definitely be in our family for years to come.
I love this clock - just a couple of things to be aware of: be sure you have a wall long enough to allow the chain to drape all the way down - possibly a good 4-5 ft.; because this is a regulator clock you can hear the movement of the gears as each second ticks by - ours in a foyer not a living area so we don't hear it at all. A single, delicate chime rings just once on-the-hour - which I think is perfect.
All-in-all I am very pleased with this clock. It is sturdy yet delicate, well-built, with an authentic appearance. Because of the counter-weight it is much heavier than I thought it would be - which I see as a plus.
