Precision Regulator with Compensated Pendulum

Georgius Ignatius Wisnpaindtner, Eichstätt, 1775

This longcase clock was used at the observatory of the University of Eichstätt for astronomical observations. The director of the observatorium, Professor Johann Ignaz Balthasar Pickel (1736-1818), designed a compensated pendulum for it. It is the oldest precision regulator ever to be made in Germany.
