What is a crystal regulator clock?
Hereof, what is a regulator clock?
A regulator clock is a generic term for a wall-mounted, weight-driven clock regulated by a swinging pendulum. Invented in the late 18th century to improve upon the accuracy of spring-wound clocks, regulators usually have separate mechanisms for the minute and hour hands.
Secondly, how do you set a regulator clock? Use the nut at the bottom of the pendulum to rate the clock. Loosen the adjustment nut to slow the clock down or tighten the nut to speed it up. If the hands are sticking or meeting up at any time during the day, gently level them out over the face of the clock with a small set of needle nose pliers.
Regarding this, how much is a regulator clock worth?

American Schoolhouse wall clocks were sometimes called regulator wall clocks because of the stenciled word "Regulator" on its lower glass on many models. Schoolhouse wall clocks usually are finished in Oak with an octagonal wall clock frame around the dial with a drop front and a swinging pendulum behind the glass.
