My grandma's clock was handed to me. Is it necessary to oil the movement once a year or once every 3 years? I like it once a year so that there is no wear. And I hear the gears running a few fraction of secs 2 minutes before the hour. And I also heard 2 drops during the hour. The first drop will happen and after a second the second drop starts and the chiming starts. This is a Tempus Fugit Grandfather clock Kieninger movement I think. I know that Tempus Fugit clocks have smaller movements than other brands like Hermle and Urgos. Its a Westminster chimer.
