Question
I have a Verichron wall clock ,recently it sufferded a fall . the glass broke and part of the door as well. It is fixable and i can do this easily. I hung the pendelium back on , but don't know where the weights are to be set . I think they are only cosmetic, can you help me with this .

Answer
If your clock has mainsprings the weights are cosmetic. The chains usually hang from hooks or nails located behind the clock face. It does not matter how high or low the weights hang. If you need more help you could send me a photo.
