Hey Ray & Keith, love seeing your fine English watches. Here is my only English watch. This Pennington has an interesting method of regulation. It uses the banking pins located on a screw through the balance cock.

I should mention that it is a ruby duplex. The American Grade '72 used this up to around 871,XXX

Paul, that's a first for me! I'll have to look your maker
up.

I'm assuming there's a Patent for that. Very nice Duplex.
Much of my collection runs 1800 to 1827.

I have Pennlington with an L, 1820's. My earliest lever is
1821 and a duplex I just grabbed today. Thanks for sharing
this famous maker. 1816 was a fine year I'd say.

The balance wheel appears to have 4 platinum screws.
My first compensated wheel is 1832 (Lewis Samuels).

Luv the M 72 Tad pole also.

Edit for Paul, Thanks Paul I see the box and screw on the 72.
I can appreciate this method for sure!!

Keith R...

Thanks Keith. If you look close at the '72 you will see the same method of regulation of the banking pins being able to be opened or closed. Though the screw is on the outside of the balance cock.

My correction on the screw adjustment on an English--first I'd seen on an English thru the cock. I do know all about the special '72 adjustments--I have a handful of them!

All great stuff, fellas.

Jon

Hi Paul, I really like your Pennington Pocket Watch. I have not seen a Pocket Watch by this maker before. Regards Ray

Hi Paul, what I should have said is that I had not seen that type of regulator before. Regards Ray
