Can you give me formulas for reliable cleaning and rinsing solutions for large clock movements?
Answer: As a rule large clock movements have lacquered plates. Sometimes even the wheels are lacquered. It is therefore essential that the cleaning fluid leave the lacquer untouched. We recommend that you use a high test gasoline or petroleum ether for cleaning and rinsing. Unlacquered parts may be cleaned with any of the regular watch cleaning machine solutions.
