Clocks, Watches/centurion 35 day pendulum clock


Hello, I was just given a made in Korea centurion pendulum 35 day clock and it has absolutely no instructions or information. I don't know how to start it or even wind it up. I've been told it works great. I just don't know how and I don't want to break it.It has a large key and a small butterfly screw that came with it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for your help. Lisa

sure what " a small butterfly screw " is???

wind both sides with the key till they stop (20-30 turns)

hang on a wall --hang the pendulum on the wire or hook - set it ticking from side to side

set current time by moving the minute hand clockwise
