Received: 1-22-20 Had movement last year at 10/8/2019 Checking: 1-22-20 Work was not completed and now ready to finish repairs. Work has begun: 1-23-20 Looking over everything to determine what needs to be done. First, I set the beat, made sure the movement would work without stopping. 1-24-20 Run all night. Checked the moon rotation, ensure accuracy. Above is the calculation for the full moon, how is working. Hope that will show you how the movement is working for the ball rotation. The day of month is working. Day of moon phase is working. Month is working. Now, lets see if what I said is really true, Manual move the hands appears to show everything is working. Had to fine tune several things to get everything corrected. Time will tell. Each day, I will observe and see if problems occur. 1-25-20 Running good. Day of month & moon phase date is working good. 1-27-20 The month (January) is coming up for a change to February in four days. It appears that will work. Everything is in the proper position.

William Full Moon Calc ul a t ion Every 30 hours X 60 minutes = 1800 minutes per 36 0 degrees ( a full Moon rotation) Full moon = 29.5 days X 24 hours = 708 hours or 42489 minutes 42480 minutes divided by 1800 minutes = 23.6 rotations  360 degrees d ivided by 23.6 rotations = 15.25 minutes per move 15.25 minutes X  23.6 per  r otation = 359.9 degre e s ( or a full moon move )
