GREETINGS BRUCE, ARE THE MAINSPRINGS ENCLOSED IN A BARREL OR ARE THEY OPEN? ALSO DOES THE MOVEMENT HAVE AN OPEN ESCAPEMENT? LET ME KNOW AND I WILL GIVE YOU AN ANSWER. EDDIE

Hi Eddie, the springs are not inside of a barrel. They are covered from view (safety type device I think). This model has an open escapement in the front of the clock. There are two models of this clock. I have the small 8 inch version..
