This three weight wall clock's striking pattern in called grand sonnerie. At the first quarter it will strike one on a gong rod and then repeat the last hour on a different gong rod. At the half hour, two strikes and repeat last hour, at the 3/4 hour three strikes and repeat the last hour, at the hour four and strike the next hour. Of course, it isn't a chiming clock but a grand sonnerie striking clock.

Some people call 3-weight Vienna Regulators blindman's clock because of the unique Grand Sonnerie striking. The clock strikes on 2 different gong rodss every quarter hour. The first tone is the quarter hour, the second is the hour. By counting the strikes you will know the time every 15 minutes.
