Quartz Floor Clocks (battery operated clocks)
Quartz floor clocks use batteries to power the time, chimes and the swinging pendulum. There is no winding and the clocks are very accurate. Most are dual chime offering a choice of Westminster or Ave Maria melodies.  There is also a volume control to adjust the volume to the size of the room, chime silence and hourly only chimes. Batteries will easily last a year a time and easy to replace. Some Quartz clocks will have the three weights to resemble a mechanical movement, but these do not move and are added to enhance the style of the clock. Some models of quartz floor clocks are non-chiming. In most cases these clocks are less than half of the price a mechanical movement clock.

Moon Dials
Most keywound grandfather clocks will offer a functional, astrologically correct moon dial. When the image of the moon reaches the 15th day of 29 1/2 day lunar cycle it will appear at the top of the dial. This dial rotates slowly clockwise over 29 1/2 days. When the image of the moon disappears, it is new moon.
