Astronomical regulators, movement front

An eight-day astronomical regulator signed 'E. Dent & Co. / 61, Strand London 2009'. A conventional weight-driven regulator with dead-beat escapement and jewelled pallets; seconds, quarter-hour and hour contacts; zinc-and-steel compensated pendulum with hit-and-miss synchronizer and a Synchronome magnetic corrector. It is one of a series of 12 clocks made by Dent specially for the British 'Transit of Venus' expeditions of 1874. Number 2009 was used by Captain Orde Browne to observe the transit at Mokattam, Egypt, and was afterwards used at Greenwich in the South-East Equatorial dome with the 12.8-inch, and later with the 28-inch telescopes.
