The term 'Regulator' is traditionally reserved for precision timepieces used to check the accuracy of domestic clocks. The first example of these wall clocks were weight-driven and appeared in Vienna in the 1820's. The popularity of the style spread across Europe as a clock for general domestic use, particularly with the development of the spring-driven movement. Comitti's line of wall clocks include weight-driven and spring-driven models that reflect the design and skills of English clockmakers. Included in this collection are "English Dial Clocks," derived from clocks used for public places. Their attraction was their large clear dials and spring-driven movements.
